Intermediate Camp

Women's Intermediate camp

Next dates: January 27-31, 2020 / Feb 24-28, 2020 

The intermediate small group camp is for you if

  • You already paddle OC1. This camp is not for first time paddlers, if you are new to OC1, check out FUNdamentals camp.
  • You want and need ocean experience.

  • You might not race OC1, yet, but want to step up your training and skill set to support getting involved in racing.  
  • You already race OC1, and recognize that you need to expand your skill set so you enjoy it more and improve your results.
  • Your club's crew selection includes OC1 Time Trials. 
  • OC1 paddling is a part of your regular training and a pathway to moving up in the OC6.

No matter which of the above applies to you, you can handle paddling 10 miles non-stop. You need to be able to manage this so that you can handle two hours of chasing bumps in Hawaii.

One of the most important things to make this camp successful and fun for you is that you are not a complete beginner. I am not currently doing camps for novice OC1 paddlers. 

Throughout the five-day camp, we will weave these themes

    • Skills needed to paddle in the ocean

    • Reading the water and learning to catch waves and paddle downwind

    • Ocean safety and confidence in bigger water

    • How to train efficently and effectively

    • Time practicing what you are learning with coaches feedback

Structure and logistics of the camp 


We are based out of Kailua on Oahu. Each day we’ll pick our location based on the skills the group needs to work on and the conditions available that will match that. 


Canoes are provided for use during camp hours.  Currently we are using Pueo Gen I and Gen II, and Tempest OC2. We use the OC2 as a coaching and teaching tool and everyone spends time in the OC2 every day.


Over five days there will be between seven and ten sessions on the water ranging from one to three hours per session, depending on the conditions and the group. A 'typical' camp lookis like this:

  • 4 days with a morning and afternoon session of 1.5-2 hours per session, paddling 10-15 miles each day.

  • 1 half day 

Camp Cost

$900 excluding Hawaii state tax. Camp fee includes coaching, canoes, video and review of video including personalized items to work on when you return home.


You will need to plan your own accommodation. Highly recommend the Windward size of Oahu including Kailua, Kaneohe and Waimanalo, as this will be our base. Below are two resources for finding a place to stay. When searching for house rentals in Kailua use Zip Code 96734

It's important to us that we provide you a great service and that our camp is suitable for you. Please fill out the below application form and we'll reivew it and get back to you. Thank you for your interest in Hawaii Paddle Camps!
