what we do
Your camper will be having a blast with us in the middle of the week when not much else is going on on the lake! Our experienced, licensed, fun and talented coaches will head out on the lake with the crew and give each participant customized watersports instruction. Besides a quick break for a yummy lunch we are out on the water for the entire day.
Wakesurfing is addictive and with a bit of effective coaching you can limitlessly progress in the sport. We will help beginners learn to get up, find the sweet spot and drop the rope. From there campers work on pumping, slashing the wake, surface spins, airs, transfers and more!
Using our instructional methods developed over years of teaching at our overnight summer camp we will make sure that campers not only progress in their wakeboarding but also have an awesome time. We help campers set goals and take their riding to the next level (or learn the basics).
Starting on two skis? Learning to drop or get up on one ski? Perfecting those rooster tails? We’ve got you covered. Waterskiing is the sport that started all of the fun behind the boat and we enjoy teaching and helping our campers shred the planks.
frequently asked Day camp questions
What do you do if it rains?
We will be on the water if it is raining! If there is any sign of lightning/thunder we will head to shore and wait for it to pass. If the forecast for one of the days looks especially bad we will swap a Monday or Friday for the bad weather day.
How long has water monkey day camp been around?
2019 was our first season offering a day camp. We have been running an overnight watersports summer camp in New Hampshire since 2012 and have extensive experience working with kids of all skill levels.
where does the camp run out of?
We are fortunate to have a great partnership with Silver Sands Marina in Gilford, NH. We have a small building there where we have lunch and chill and a dock slip for our boat! The rest of the day we are on Lake Winnipesaukee finding the best water and having fun with our campers. Our day camp on Lake Sunapee will operate out of George’s Mills public launch area.
How do campers get there?
Parents can drop off their campers by car or by boat at Silver Sands Marina. The marina is located centrally on Lake Winnipesaukee for easy access from all parts of the lake.
What time is camper drop-off / pick-up?
Campers should be at the marina by 7:45 AM. Parents should be there to pick them up by 4 PM.
can you just pick up campers at their dock?
Not yet! We hope to add this service in the future but for now all campers need to make their own way to our meeting spot.
who makes lunch for the campers?
Our private chef, Rebecca, makes lunch for our day camp as well as all of the meals at our overnight program.
