WATER ACTIVITIES

Some of our excellent waterfront activities present the challenge of learning new skills while some are simply for fun.

Every camper participates with their group in two afternoon water activities that rotate daily. Each activity lasts 60 minutes. 
  • Banana Boat Rides
  • Canoe & Kayaking
  • Paddleboarding (ages 9-12)
  • Sailing (ages 9-15)
  • Swimming
  • Water Toys (Blob, Aqua Tower)
  • Wet Wylie Water Slide
Safety
 
All our waterfront staff are trained in CPR, First Aid and Lifeguarding. Boat drivers are U.S. Coast Guard certified. Specific staff receive additional training and certification depending on activity requirements. Staff continue to receive training throughout the summer to enhance their ability to provide a safe atmosphere while supervising our waterfront areas.
 
Every camper must participate in a swimming skills assessment in accordance with the YMCA of Greater Charlotte >>
