Designed for campers ages 10 years and older who prefer to spend most of their time at the lake, River Way’s premier Waterski/Wakeboard Camp offers plenty of instruction each week. This program is designed for both beginner-level and experienced riders. Beginners are encouraged to learn the basics of waterskiing, wakeboarding and/or kneeboarding at their own pace. They are taught on a ski boom and most experience success on their first visit to the lake.
Our more advanced campers learn wake-to-wake jumps and aerial tricks as well as the elements of body position, board control, edging, jumping and spinning. In addition, they have the opportunity to advance their free-riding skills wakeskating or wakesurfing. Campers also have the opportunity to review and critique their performance on video and practice new skills on the trampoline.
River Way is a member of the National Waterski Association, and we are proud to offer campers the experience of a lifetime at one of the best waterski/wakeboard camps in the nation.
With a ratio of 1:2, riders get plenty of personal instruction in all aspects of riding techniques as well as caring for a horse assigned to them for the entire session. After an early breakfast, campers will round up their horses, groom and saddle them before receiving at least three hours of hands-on training per day.
All campers will, to their ability, learn to ride bareback, play games on horseback, attend and participate in rodeo events, trail riding, take their horses for a swim in the pond and possibly enter a show. Jumping is offered to those who show control and discipline.
Activities also include scenic trail rides throughout Wonder Valley, gymkhana and vaulting. Trail Blazers is limited to 10 campers per session and available to campers 10 years of age and older.
Campers enjoy hours of fun experiencing the thrill of competition in River Way’s state of the art Paintball Course. Under the supervision of River Way’s Paintball Director, campers participate in mini in-house tournaments and learn the basics of refereeing. Campers have fun participating in early morning drills and shooting practice, and they work with the same group of friends and campers to improve upon skills they learn day-to-day and to progress as a team. Campers enrolled in the Paintball Camp enjoy 20 hours of practice, tournaments, and instruction each week.
Not surprisingly, sign-ups for paintball camp go just about as fast as kids can run! We have a very limited number of spots available for young people ages 10-16 and the maximum number of participants in a session is limited to 14 players.
