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. Your camper’s waterfront school has a ratio of one staff member for every three campers, ensuring success in learning new skills and riding styles. Spend a summer acquiring new confidence and feelings of accomplishment on the water.
Instructed by some of the most qualified instructors in the nation using competition level Ski Nautique boats, the water sports programs are operated on Pine Flat Lake using River Way’s 55-foot, two-story houseboat known as Lombardo. It comes equipped with two water slides, top jumping planks from the 25-foot high houseboat, a large professional barbeque, and an ADA-sanctioned bathroom.
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.
