May parents attend the camp?

The camp is designed for paddlers from 13 to 23 years old.

The registration will close when 25 paddlers are registered. Register early to secure your spot!

 You will need to pay before the beginning of the camp, but our preference would be for you to pay by end of November.


What are the dorms like? What do I need to bring?

 The dorms are gender - separated cabin- type accommodations with bunk beds.  We recommend you bring a warm sleeping bag and pillow. Even if San Diego weather is mild in the winter, we recommend you bring some warm clothing, as well as wet-weather clothing.  We will send a detailed packing list to all participants in advance.


What if a paddler has allergies or dietary restrictions?

 Please communicate with us in advance regarding any allergies or dietary restrictions, and we will do our best to accommodate
