Capital SUP Summer Camp Season 9

We’re gearing up for another summer of fun at Capital SUP’s Grom Camp. Our 9th year of Grom Camp will be held at our Quiet Waters Park location and feature 10 weekly camp sessions from June 17th – August 26th. Registration for each session is limited, so sign your child up for a summer to remember TODAY before space runs out!

You might be wondering, “What is a grom?” A grommet (grom) is a young person who participates in action sports. Originally a name for surfers under the age of 16, the definition has expanded to include other action sports; most notably, stand-up paddleboarding!

Here at Capital SUP, we believe respect for our local waterways and love for water sports starts with our youth. Whether your child is new to paddling or has experience on a board, we’ve crafted an engaging camp experience for kids ages 7-14 that focuses on developing a passion for fitness, love for our local environment, and connection to our community.

We’re so excited to host Grom Camp at our Quiet Waters Park location again for the 2024 season. We love how this location offers lush green trees, abundant wildlife, and other park amenities, including playgrounds, nature paths, and marsh land, that help make the camp experience even more special! Led by our experienced and enthusiastic camp counselors, campers will enjoy a memorable week of outdoor adventure, education, and fun. Some of the activities campers will participate in include: learn-to-paddle and water safety lessons, SUP yoga and fitness, SUP games, water trampolines, clean water education, and more.

Capital SUP’s Grom Camp has been voted Best of Annapolis from 2021-2023, and is the only paddleboard camp that is licensed and employs certified lifeguards as instructors. Each counselor carries a First Aid, CPR, ACA Paddle, and lifeguard certification and works with kids in a 5:1 ratio to ensure the safety of our campers. Our camp offers half and full-day options during each session and provides payment plans, if needed, to meet the individual needs of families and increase access to our waterways. While lunch is not provided throughout the week, each camp session concludes with a tye-dye and pizza party celebration.

Our summer camp is packed full of activities to keep your kiddo active and smiling all week long. Voted Best of Annapolis in 2021 – 2022 – 2023; our Grom Camp includes learning sessions, water safety, how to SUP, SUP yoga & fitness, SUP games, beach clean-ups, clean water education, and more. With half and full-day options during ten weeks of camp, there’s endless summer fun waiting for you!

Our 9th year of Grom Camp is shaping up to be our best year yet! Register for Grom Camp today to give your child a summer experience they’ll never forget.
