Summer Splash Camp

By | Uncategorized

School’s out and Liverpool Wake Park promise Liverpool’s most action-packed summer camp EVER!

With school out, Liverpool Wake Park has announced a series of fun-fuelled summer camps for youngsters during the holidays.

Liverpool Wake Park has teamed up with Adventure Dock, Liverpool Watersports Centre and Airborn Academy, to create the ultimate multi-sport, summer adrenalin experience, Summer Splash Camp, running from August 13-16 and then from August 20-23. The two camps will offer the perfect opportunity for children to meet new friends and stay active in a safe environment, making it the perfect summer social for all young thrill-seekers.

Visiting some of Liverpool’s biggest and best sporting and adventure facilities throughout the four-day camps, children will have the opportunity to wakeboard, paddleboard, try parkour and free running, as well as jump and splash until their hearts content on the 92-metre inflatable Adventure Dock course.

Tim Woodhead, creator of Liverpool Wake Park and Adventure Dock, said

“We know entertaining the kids all summer long can be challenging for parents so we wanted to create something fun and memorable that the parents will love and the kids will enjoy. Our Summer Splash Camps are designed to give kids aged eight and above a multi-sports experience, they will be able to try lots of new things and hopefully make some new friends along the way.

“Partnering with some of Liverpool’s most well-loved sport and activity companies has been fantastic and all of the teams involved will offer something a little different to the mix. Children and young people will get to participate in everything from practical sessions to prize-giving celebrations, as well as one-on-one coaching from the skilled and experienced teams. We have tried to create the most actioned-packed offer possible to give parents real value for money. It is going to be a real blast for everyone!”

All children attending the Summer Splash Camps will be provided with wetsuits, buoyancy aids, helmets, wakeboards and all other equipment needed to get the most from the experience; all they will need to bring is a packed lunch, swimwear and a change of clothes.

The summer camps cost £180 per person and will run from 9am-4pm each day. With a limited capacity for just 16 children for each camp, bookings will be taken on a first come and first serve basis.

All the kids get given their Cutting Edge booklets with give a great format to follow for the camp. There are loads of tricks to learn, like ollies, hitting your first jumps and rails and learning surface power slides and spins.

The Stand Up Paddleboarding (SUP) will take place in Queens Dock, from Liverpool Watersports Centre. Please note the wake park is based at the Watersports Center, so wakeboarding and SUP happen from the same location.

Airborn Academy

We are Open Again!

By | Uncategorized

Good news, we are open again!

For the first time in 5 years, we had to close for a couple of months this winter. There was a number of jobs that needed doing to fully service the S2’s, replace some of the docks and drop new anchors. We definitely picked the coldest winter to be doing such maintenance work and it took a bit longer than expected. But we are back open again now.

For March and April, we will be open Wednesday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday.

In May and June we will open Wednesday to Sunday

In July and August we will be open 7 days a week!

Hope to see you down at the park, very soon.
