COVID-19 Update: 

It is with a very heavy heart that we announce the cancellation of our 10th Annual SBX Waterman Camp, scheduled for July 27-31, 2020.

We delayed this decision as long as possible to determine what would be feasible, and most responsible, in the midst of the Covid-19 pandemic. In order to adhere to CDC and local government guidelines, we would have to alter our camp operations, and the energy of camp, to such a degree that would inhibit our ability to operate camp in a safe, stress-free, over-the-top-fun manner, as we have for ten years.

We believe that in order to keep your child safe in the water, and to allow your child to connect with other students naturally, abiding by a 6 foot physical distance would not be possible to follow nor enforce.

Fear not! There will be plenty of opportunities for your child to expand their passion & skills as a junior waterman this summer. We are also hopeful that, if we all do our part, we will be able to offer a modified version of SBX Waterman Camp at a later date this season.

Please email [email protected] with any questions, or to hop on a list to be updated on opportunities for your child to explore their inner waterman this summer. 

Stay tuned, stay stoked.



Every day a new adventure awaits according to the weather. The SBX (Sleeping Bear Xtreme) Waterman Camp is a unique freshwater surf camp designed and taught by water enthusiasts to create water enthusiasts.

The camp has a strong emphasis on the importance of outdoor activity and helps instill a respect for the environment. Michigan weather is wild, so here at SBX, we encourage our campers to embrace whatever each day on the water along the Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore throws at us in order to create greater watermen out of ourselves. 

Go on a surf safari and catch some freshwater waves, see the massive Sleeping Bear Dunes from a kayak, cruise with the wind on SUP along the lakeshore, learn to harness your breath and dive on historic wrecks, learn to throw a new trick on a skimboard, campout one night under the stars along the shore of Lake Michigan, take the Supsquatch for a spin down the face of a wave with your new friends, and have the time of your life while learning the ways of the waterman. Anything is possible at SBX Waterman Camp… leave it up to the wind, and some positive energy.

For groms & grommets ages 12+ (please inquire if interested under 12).
