Welcome to Kids Camp!
The Big Winds Kids Camps will start again June 24th, 2013. Start making your plans now!
Our Kids Camp is a 4-day program that is ideal for introducing kids to windsurfing in a fun and encouraging camp setting. Our camp is specially designed for children ages 7 to 13 and takes place at our Adventure Center inside the Hook, a windy yet protected lagoon right here in Hood River.
Our instructors have developed a fun and positive environment for teaching kids how to windsurf. We use the latest specialized, lightweight gear to guarantee success. The camp teaches all skill-levels, including basic sailing, harness use, footstraps and beach starting. Big Winds Kids Camp is a blast!
