Our Summer Fun Kids Camp is a great way for kids to learn the sport in a social environment. The gear is easy to use and the kids feel success right away. The three-day Kiteboarding day-camps include kite-flying skills, some theory, some safety talks. Kids work together in small groups 3-4 kids to 1 instructor. These youth power camps enrich the lives of the students and promote healthy active lifestyles. Kids receive a certificate on completion at the end of their three-day course.
Running since 1999 our Summer Kids Camps have been a great success. We are Maui’s Original Kids Kiteboarding Camp and have specialized in promoting kids kiteboarding. Kids come back several times a summer and sometimes several summers in a row. We also have advanced classes for the slightly older kids that have progressed beyond the beginners program.
Located at Kanaha Beach Park
in Kahului at Kitebeach, we are blessed with reliable trade winds, and warm water. Our summer Kids Kite camps start at 10:00am each day when the winds are calmer, and to get the young ones going. The students set up the gear and carry it to the sweetspot, the ideal part of the beach for learning to fly the kites. Each day we break for a snack and do some beach exercises, fun theory, & safety talks.
No experience is necessary. If kids have a little experience, a lot or no experience at all, ourprogram will work for them. Some of our kids will be working onthe fundamentals, while others will be doing some more advancedtechniques. Just let us know where they are at and we can getthem going.
The course is primarily for children, from 9 to 16 years of age. Camps are usually a mixture of local school kids and some summer visitors too. Many of the local kids are from families and are second generation kit
ers. Our visitor’s children are often a mix of newbies and
some from families that have been visiting the islands for years. This is a great opportunity for local kids to mix in with some new kids and see some new faces.
What to Bring: To help keep our prices down. We recommend that Kids bring their own booties. Their lycra rashguard shirt is supplied.

Sunglasses are optional but if you have them they should also have a leash. *Kids feel the cold more than adults so we recommend that they bring a shorty wetsuit (springsuit). *All participants must be able to swim in deep water (over their heads), and be comfortable in the water.
*Kids must be physically fit for the activity. *Please let us know if your child has any special needs we should be aware of.
