Make Waves Retreat - MI

Is paddle boarding experience needed?

No paddle boarding experience is needed. During the retreat there will be opportunities to learn paddle boarding basics if you are a beginner, or practice more advances skills if you have been on a board for years.

How should my daughter dress and what other attire should she bring?

Throughout the day we will be on and off the water.  It is encouraged that your daughter wear a bathing suit, shorts, t-shirt, and sandals.  Also, a visor or hat is encouraged to help protect her from the sun.  It is helpful for her to also have warmer clothes (long sleeves and pants) in case it is a cooler day. You will receive a list of items to pack as part of a pre-participation packet a few weeks prior to your camp start date.

What if I can't be there at 4pm to pick up my daughter?

In the case you are unable to pick your daughter up at 4pm, please notify staff prior to the week of the retreat and we will make arrangements for a later pickup.

What general water safety precautions are followed

While on the paddle board, participants are required to use a SUP leash (unless a specific activity does not allow for it).  Participants are also encouraged to wear a lifejacket while on the water.

What if my daughter is not able to attend the entire retreat.

It is encouraged that your daughter attend the retreat in it's entirety, a strong community is built throughout the retreat and it's very valuable for your daughter to learn all the different mental toughness skills. We do understand that life happens and this isn't always possible.  If that is the case for you, reach out to us and we can discuss your options.

 Will I need a Metropark pass for dropoff?

Yes, a Metropark pass is needed for dropoff and pick up.
