Water Sports


Waterskiing and wakeboarding are two of the most popular activities at camp. All of our ski boats are driven by lifeguards with extensive waterski experience. Nothing beats waterskiing on Lake Winnipesaukee!


Wakeskiing is a new sport that allows a camper to ‘surf’ the wake of the ski boat. Our brand new wakeski boat sits lower in the water to create a bigger wake and the camper does not use a rope, but rather uses the momentum of the wake to follow the boat!


Paddleboarding is extremely popular at Winaukee and is a great challenge in strength and balance! Starting in the shallow water, campers are introduced to the basics of paddleboarding and quickly become comfortable traversing around the Island campus!


Our fleet of canoes are used non-stop at Winaukee with qualified instructors guiding our campers every step of the way.


Day after day, campers return with small mouth bass and catfish. With two fishing boats and all the required equipment, every camper will be able to learn to fish on the lake!


We offer every camper an introduction to kayaking on our waterfront. We have installed a flat water practice and slalom race course where campers enjoy high quality instruction in paddling and boat handling skills.


Sailing is one of the most popular activities at the waterfront. Our campers learn the basics of sailing on our fleet of Sunfish sail boats and can practice in shallow water always supervised by our team of lifeguards.


Our swim program is supervised by Red Cross Certified Lifeguards and Water Safety Instructors. Recreational swim is a great way to cool off, have fun and relax on a warm summer day!
