Youth Summer Camp
$449.00* | Ages 10-14 & 15-18 | Limited to 20 Participants | Five (5) Days, Mon to Fri, 9:00am to 4:00pm
Our youth summer camps provide a variety of exhilarating activities for campers on and off the water. On the water, most campers will want to take advantage of our easy to ride cable systems, incredible wakeboard coaches, and nearly perfect water conditions. Many campers usually want to wakeboard until their arms nearly fall off, and learn everything they can in a week. If they ever do come off the water, there is plenty of shade, games, snacks, and other entertainment to keep even the shortest attention span excited and engaged. (And our prizes for learning new tricks are great!) Not only are our summer camps in Cincinnati a great value, they are exactly what you would have wanted in a wakeboard camp when you were their age! No matter what level your soon to be shredder is currently at, they are sure to experience the best summer camp in Ohio! In the event of poor weather, we have plenty of activities to keep things fun, dry, and entertaining. Bring a swimsuit, any special food, sunblock, water bottle, and a towel, and we’ll cover everything else. Lunch, snacks, and plenty of water is always provided.
Normal drop off time is 9:00am and normal pick up time is 4:00pm but hey, we get it, you’re busy. If you have a special situation, or need a different drop off and/or pick up time, just let us know and we’ll do our best to accommodate your needs. WNC staff are onsite 24 hours/day during the summer so we are pretty flexible. We are also happy to help coordinate carpooling.
*If a 2nd camper is a member of the same household, we discount the 2nd camper fee by $50. Tax Break: Parents, in many cases, summer camps are tax-deductible. See the IRS rules or speak to your accountant to see if summer camp costs are tax deductible for your situation.
Family Wakeboard Camp
$399.00 + Moms* Are FREE + $99.00 for Each Additional Family Member | All Ages | Limited to 16 Total Participants | Sat & Sun, 9am to 4:00pm
Our family wakeboard camp on the cables is most likely the first wakeboard camp of it’s kind. It’s certainly the first wakeboard camp that allows mom to participate for free*. We couldn’t think of a better or less stressful way for the whole family or extended family to spend a weekend or holiday at the lake, relaxing, learning from the best wakeboard instructors, and spending time together doing something they enjoy. And the “boat driver” dad can also enjoy a weekend off!
*Mom (or a 2nd parent) is free when attending with at least one other paying family member. We think free is a pretty good price…
The family wakeboard camp has all of the same great instruction and fun you’ve come to know from our other wakeboard camps. And when the sun goes down, we have plenty of marshmallows to go around the fire, and night riding is not unheard of. Wakeboard camp doesn’t officially start until Saturday morning, but if you would like to bring a tent or the RV and stay with the instructors onsite, Friday and Saturday night, we’ll make it happen with advanced planning. We are onsite 24 hours a day in the summer.
If your bucket list includes mom learning how to ride switch or dad getting to ride doubles with another family member, or wakeboarding at night, this is the best opportunity to have one of the most memorable family weekends of the entire summer.
$399.00 | Ages 21+ | Limited to 8 Participants | Sat & Sun, 9am to 4:00pm
Why do the kids get to have all the fun? Wakeboard camp is certainly not just for the kids so come spend a weekend with us doing what you love! Come learn, have fun, hang with the Wake Nation Cincinnati (WNC) crew, and get your ride on! WNC adult wakeboard camps were created specifically for those of us that have a normal job and need to work Monday – Friday. Hosted at our cable park over a weekend, and with a maximum of 8 students, you’ll be able to ride as much as you can handle in two days. In between sets we have several games and floating toys that even the adults will have a blast on, and when the sun goes down, we have a fire pit and night riding opportunities you can’t get anywhere else!
If you haven’t ridden a cable before, don’t let that scare you off. It’s the absolute best way to learn for first-time wakeboarders, and it’s a fast learning curve (about 2 sets) for experienced riders. There is no better or safer way to learn a few of those wakeboard tricks you have probably been thinking about. At slow speeds, the cable removes the fear and hesitation that you normally have when riding the boat, and instead, allows you focus on the actual trick without that paralyzing fear of getting spanked if things go wrong. Add the trampoline and the some of the best wakeboard coaches in the industry, and you’ll be acting like you’re 16 again in no time. Whether you want to start at the very beginning learning the basics, or work on your first jumps, inverts, and spins, or learn how to hit a slider, rail, kicker, or fun box, the training is specifically tailored to each individual, at any skill level and any age.
Wakeboard camp doesn’t officially start until Saturday morning, but if you would like to bring a tent or an RV and stay with the instructors onsite, Friday and Saturday night, we’ll make it happen with advanced planning. We are onsite 24 hours a day in the summer. For those of you that may want to attend wakeboard camp with your children under 21, see our Family Wakeboard Summer Camp option.
Feature Camp (Sliders and Jumps)
$399.00 | Ages 16+ | Limited to 8 Participants | Sat & Sun, 9am to 4:00pm
Have you been thinking about sliding over that first box? Or boosting off a kicker? If so, our feature wakeboard camp may be just the ticket to getting you comfortable with your first few sliders, boxes, and kickers – collectively called features. In our feature camp, you’ll get to float out to each feature, stand on it, see how it feels, learn how to approach and ride it, and most of all have fun. For this camp, you should be able to make the start and the turns on the full size cable easily and consistently.
