Summer camp is a joy for both kids and adults! Especially for kids as they know that it means that it’ll all be about fun and games till you drop! Worried about expenses? You shouldn’t! You don’t need to go to an expensive camp just to have a blast this summer! There are so many activities that you can do with your friends and families without the need to sign up to expensive summer camps. Here are some summer water camp activities that you and your kids can enjoy!

Swimming

Swimming is the number one summer activity for everyone. When summer comes, everyone’s mind will imagine the beach and of course, no beach visit is complete without swimming.

Swimming is not only a great and fun recreational activity, it’s also a good workout for everyone. It combines cardio and strength training and it’s also low-impact, which means no matter your age and fitness level, you can get started with swimming.

Kids also love it! If your kid doesn’t know how to swim yet, it’s about time they learn! Like what we pointed earlier, swimming is a great way to get fit and doing it regularly can have significant benefits for your kid’s health and safety.

Overall, swimming is a fun way to cool off during summer while also keeping you physically fit. Working out has never been so fun!

Fishing

If you don’t want to get totally wet, but still want to enjoy summer water activities, then fishing is for you. Fishing is simple. You bait your hook and then cast. Then the wait for a fish to bite the bait begins, and once a fish took the bait, it’s time to haul it in! Seems simple? Only those who haven’t experienced fishing yet can say that!

Nothing beats the exhilarating feeling of a wiggling rod! The joy of catching a fish for the first time, especially for a kid can be overwhelming.

Fishing is also a great way to enjoy a breathtaking scenery while relaxing and waiting for your big catch. It can also help you relieve your stress.

Wakeboarding

This is quite an extreme one compared to the others here. But contrary to popular belief, it doesn’t take an athletic figure to get started in wakeboarding but be warned that you will fall a lot, but it’s a lot of fun!

If you are not that physically fit, then wakeboarding will help you develop strong body, particularly strong arm, and leg muscles. It will also improve your reaction times and help develop hand to eye coordination.

Before you begin, if you are a total beginner, I advise that you learn hand signals to the boat. It’s one of the most important in terms of safety in wakeboarding.

Snorkeling

Coming face to face with nature has never been so fun! Snorkeling is a great way to observe undersea life. You will be able to see and perhaps even swim with turtles, fishes, manta rays and more! You can also admire coral reefs and other underwater formations.

The first time we did it, we thought that it was scary! But when we actually tried it out, it’s an out of this world experience! Being able to swim with a massive amount of fish, see different species of underwater creatures makes you appreciate nature more and gives a feeling of awe.

Ever since then, we have snorkeling fins and masks with us every time we go on a vacation to a location near beaches and bodies of water, just in case we can snorkel.

Of all the summer camp water activities in this list, snorkeling is probably the most extraordinary and we highly recommend you to try it at least once. Don’t forget reef safe sunscreen – to keep your skin and the reefs safe.
