$49 for One Day of Wakeboarding Day Camp ($119 Value)
During day camps, instructors propel wakeboarders toward the pinnacle of athleticism, helping them hone their skills and style atop undulating waters. Appropriate for students aged 7 and older, the camps include free rein of gear from the pro shop and midday meals of hotdogs, chips, and soda. Day camps are held from 8:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. Monday through Friday, kicking off June 4 and running through the week of August 6.
As speeding wakeboarders bail from their runs, plunging into the water as the tow cables snap away from their grasp, no boats will ever circle back to pick them up. They're not stranded, however, because at KC Watersports, overhead cables pull riders along the water instead, ushering them toward the rails and ramps peppering the 7.5-acre lake. Families cheer on water-skiers from the beach, grab bites at the snack shack, or fasten water-skis on hot dogs and get them to race. Beginner sessions feature slower cable speeds to acclimate newcomers to the wakes, and the camp's sets of sliders and kickers challenge veterans to pull off new, more impressive stunts than merely back-flipping over a human pyramid. Back on shore, spectators can cheer on athletes from shaded beach or grab bites at the snack shack, and an onsite pro shop stocks rental or retail gear from brands such as Liquid Force, Body Glove, Go Pro, and Master Craft.
