SUPKids Launches in Los Angeles to Teach Kids Environmental and Water Safety Education with   Stand Up Paddle Boarding

SUPKids Camp is a one-day outdoor experience for Environmental Charter Middle Schools students provided by the Prana Explorer Grant & Outdoor Foundation.

SUPKids teaches kids water safety and environmental education outdoors. We believe that when kids fall in love with an ocean sport, they fall in love with the ocean and ultimately, the outdoors. And, kids who love their ocean become ambassadors for taking care of it. 

SUPKids is an educational program taking place in SUP schools in 21 countries globally. SUPKids was launched in 2014 in partnership with Starboard SUP, a leading innovator of Stand Up Paddling.

Environmental Charter Middle School Inglewood is a free, public charter school that offers students a small, caring school environment that supports students’ transition from elementary school, prepares them for success in a college preparatory high school, and empowers them to become leaders in their community and world.  ECMS-Inglewood is part of Environmental Charter Schools which serves over 1,000 students from communities in South Los Angeles.
