Rye Watersports runs two day ‘Kids Camps’ over the summer holidays on our safe inland lake between Rye and Camber Sands, East Sussex, and only one hour from South London.

Our ‘kids camps’ offer the most enjoyable and safest ways of getting young ones into watersports – remember ‘Swallow and Amazons’!  We have an Adventure Activities License which authorises us to teach children of all ages, and we are regularly inspected to ensure we uphold our standard of care since 1986.


These two-day fun camps are for children aged 7 – 13 years. They are run over the school summer holidays and geared towards giving youngsters not only water confidence, but an introduction into windsurfing, sailing and paddling with an emphasis on FUN!!

Qualified Royal Yachting instructors, who have considerable experience in teaching children are with the groups throughout the day. Camps are run from 10.00a.m to 3.00p.m over two consecutive days. A few minutes down the road is Camber Sands which is ideal for younger children in the family to be taken to with their buckets and spades.

Q & A

Some common questions we often receive answered here:

Just a towel! We provide all wetsuits and personal safety equipment.
We recommend that all our lake users use some kind of footwear when on our courses. Wetsuit boots are the most appropriate and can be bought from our shop. (Jelly shoes, are inappropriate)
No matter, we use the latest equipment and teaching methods to ensure you are up and cruising at the earliest opportunity.
