Since our native language is dutch and most of our participants are dutch, of course a lot of dutch will be spoken. However in every camp we will have some international participants, ranging from kids all over the world. our main language will be english, in the netherlands english is teached from an early age so that won’t be a problem. Our staff also speaks german, spanish and french. language will probably not be an issue during the camp.

I have a medical condition or something i want you to be aware off, can you take this into account?
Of course, we’ll do our very best to consider everyone’s preferences and/or medical conditions. However, we would like to talk to you first, so we can figure out if we can provide everything your son or daughter needs.
Do you have to be sporty to participate?
Everyone is welcome at the Jobe Summer Camps. We practice water sports behind the boat individually. This means that our instructors can give everyone personal feedback. Our biggest motivation is to bring joy to the participants. Summer camp should be an awesome experience. Even though all our instructors are educated, it’s still important that the participant has some affinity towards water sports.
I dont have experience with watersports, does that matter?
That’s not a problem! Our instructors are professional and experienced sports instructors and who love a challenge. They are happy to transfer the “water-sport-virus” to all the participants. However, a swimming certificate is an absolute must!
I have my own gear, can I bring this?
We leave this decision to the participant. Board Academy has all the gear you’ll need to practice water sports. However, we do understand that using your own gear is always a bit better. Therefore, you are free to bring it, but it will also be your own responsibility.
What do we get to eat during the camps?
We offer a variety of different healthy and tasty meals, offcourse we will have a BBQ, but our meal plan is based on the activities!
I have allergies or am on a diet, does this matter?
We will make sure we will adapt to your needs, let us know before the camp so we can talk about this.
What if my kid doesn’t feel at home?
Our capable and well trained instructors have experience in group dynamics and behaviour, this will make sure you kid does feel welcome. we have 24/7 guidance during the camps. if there would be anything we will call and discuss how we move forward. but luckily this has never happend, so we are sure your kid is in good hands with us.
I see some activties and think they could be dangerous?
Though we are aware wakeboarding is an extreme sport, our instructors will guide all participants based on there own skill level, we will make sure everything will be safe, this way the activities we offer will not be more dangerous that a sport they try during a gymclass.
Is there any relaxation during the camp?
Offcourse we offer monents of relaxation, it is a vacation after all… we have movie and game nights and we make sure participants get to relax between activities.
Can i reach my child during the camp?
