At NOC’s Summer Day Camp our goal is to inspire fun outdoor adventure while teaching your kids paddling skills while building confidence and making new friends along the way. Available for ages 9-17, our camps are built for any skill type from beginner to advanced.  

Kids will be dropped off each morning to gear up for a day on the water! The week starts off on Fontana Lake where we will do a skills assessment with the group. Kids will then be separated into skill level so that we can plan the best path for the week to meet the camper’s goals. Participants will spend time on the lake focusing on learning new skills and refining the skills they already have through fun drills and games then put them to use on the river. Rivers paddled will depend on skill level, as well as other determinants, but participants will get ample time on the water!  

UPDATE: Family Fun Friday is currently tentative. Updates will be communicated at the start of your child’s camp week. The final day of camp is “Family Fun Friday” where parents are invited to join the campers on a section of the Nantahala River. Kids will be able to show off their new moves and skills during this paddle. A riverside lunch and closing ceremony will cap off the end of a successful week. Parents who do not own gear or are not paddlers can rent a place on an NOC Guided Raft at a discounted rate and join the group on the water! 

Youth camps are also a great way for parents to take advantage of our other Paddling School Courses for themselves while their child is participating in one of our camps.
