Sea & Surf Sprouts Dates on Schedule

The dates for our Sea Sprouts programs have been announced!
Session 1- June 20-21
Session 2- July 24-25
We have two sessions of the ever popular Sea Sprouts.
These sessions are for boys and girls age 8-12 years old.
The location is the ever fabulous Skidaway Narrows.
The first session, for which we have 10 spaces available, runs June 20 & 21, from 9-1pm. Cost is $55 per person per day.

The programs are loosely based around kayaking and emphasize self confidence, team work, on-water safety and fun. But more importantly, we will be playing all the old favorites like Muddy Buddy, Shakey Monkey, and Women and Children First.
The second Sea Sprouts session is July 24 and 25 at the same location and time. There are only 5 places left for this session.

Surf Sprouts - June 6-7.

For the older kids we have Surf Sprouts.
This program is geared more towards personal skills growth in the sport of kayaking, and more specifically in surf kayaking. We use sit on top kayaks and work the beach break on Tybee. We wear helmets and the kids can expect to take a beating.
