Summer Water Sports leads the field in waterski and wakeboard instruction in Canada; on average we take 30,000 people waterskiing every year.

Whether you are learning a new sport or improving your skills, taking a professional lesson is always a good idea. Our highly skilled instructors are certified by Waterski and Wakeboard Canada (WWC), and receive practical First Aid and CPR training. Many of our top instructors have received their Level 2 Wakeboard Instruction through WWC, and some are Learning and Master facilitators, helping to shape the direction of teaching towed water sports in Canada.

SWS SchoolsAt SWS, we pride ourselves on teaching a wide range of ages and skill sets. Whether it is your little one’s first ski, or you are an experienced client wanting to fly off our ski jump, SWS is committed to providing safe and fun instruction for all. If you sign up for a beginner ski or wakeboard lesson, we guarantee that you’ll get up or your money back! We also offer tubing and banana boat rides at all of our locations.

Our ski schools are situated on some of Muskok’s top resort properties, but are always open to the public. If you’re interested in skiing with SWS, we recommend booking your lessons in advance.

Day Camp

DayCamp Summer Water Sports operates a day camp program at the Lake Joseph Club which runs Monday to Friday 9:30 AM until 4:30 PM all summer long. Skiers who attend the camp receive personalized one-on-one training from some of Canada’s top instructors. This allows skiers to quickly improve and expand upon their skills. Skiers at the camp also benefit from being a part of a team environment – they are able to pick up additional tips and tricks while watching their peers ski. The camp provides skiers with a fun, safe and comfortable environment to learn, develop long lasting friendships and improve upon their skills. SWS Day CampSWS offers skiers the choice of attending camp for a full day or half day. Full day campers receive four personalized one-on-one ski runs of their choice. Half day campers may attend either the morning or afternoon sessions and receive two personalized one-on-one ski runs of their choice. Past campers from the Lake Joseph Club have gone on to have great success in the sport of waterskiing. The camp has produced some of Canada’s top show skiers, including Geordie, Charlie and Whitney Newlands, who all started their ski careers as campers with Summer Water Sports. The Newlands attribute their success in the sport of waterskiing to many fun hours spent at the docks at the Lake Joseph Day Camp. The Day Camp program is perfect for those looking to improve upon specific skills or kick start their professional show skiing career.

  • Full Day, 9:30 AM – 4:30 PM, 4 ski runs, $210
  • Half Day, morning or afternoon, 2 ski runs, $115

ClinicYour dock is full of guests and you are entertaining and relaxing with your friends, but the kids won’t stop bugging you to take them skiing. No one wants to leave a party to do continual circles around the lake – except for us! Let us come to your dock and take care of entertaining (and tiring out) all the kids (or adults) at your next party. We bring the boat, all of the ski equipment and staff right to your dock. All you have to do is sit back with your cocktail and enjoy. You pick the location, day and time and we will be there.

Cottage Clinics

We offer cottage clinics throughout the Muskoka area from spring to fall. Our clients are provided with a Mastercraft boat, a large selection of equipment from O’Brien and one or two of our world-class instructors. In addition to providing waterski and wakeboard instruction, our instructors are also qualified to teach safe boat driving for all watersport activities. Summer Water Sports can also supply you with Sea-Doos, inflatables, standup paddleboards, lifeguards and our famous flyboard.

Instructor Only Clinics

Perfect for skiers who prefer to ski behind their own boat, but are interested in improving on their skiing. Our staff will come to your cottage and provide skiers with world class driving and instruction.

Driving Instruction Clinics

Our famous waterski shows would be not possible without the expert skill level of our boat drivers. Learning to drive for waterskiers and wakeboards can be difficult to navigate alone. Our highly skilled boat drivers can come to your dock to teach you how to safely and skillfully drive waterski and wakeboard runs for all ages and skill levels. We can also teach you how to properly maneuver your boat around the lake and offer expert tips and tricks for docking your boat.
