Summer Family Fun Discover Boating

Every summer all the boaters get together from our church and join up on Rend Lake for huge Sunday Armada. It is a yearly tradition and everyone looks forward to it each year. Besides this event, the boaters head out to the lake all throughout the summer. We don't personally own a boat but that doesn't stop our participation in these fun filled events!

Heading out on the water is a fun family event that is free of any type of electronic distractions. I don't even think cell phones are out which keeps all the texting and Facebook posting for after the event. Isn't that refreshing?

Do you have a boat? How often do you head out on the water. Do you have kids? Do you take them? Have you taught them about water safety? I just found a really helpful site that has games, activities and safety tips just for kids. There are a lot of resources here to teach them more about boating. On our Sunday Armada there are people of all ages- kids up to grandparents. Check out the boating education page before your next trip on the water. 


The site that I mentioned above is called DiscoverBoating.com which provides a lot of tools, tips and how-to guides to teach you more about boating. They have a very easy-to navigate website. I clicked to get the free, "Get Starting in Boating," DVD. They also have a boat selector tool allowing you to get to know the available boats before you head out and purchase one. If you are really serious about purchasing a boat use their Cost comparison tool and Boat Loan Calculator to help guide your purchase.

You have to check out the Discover Boating Facebook Movie Maker App after your next trip on the lake. It allows you to take your fun photos from the tip and turn it into your own short movie! I am so doing this with our next outing.

So you don't have a boat and now your really want one BUT your spouse doesn't? You have to check out their Spousal Conversion Kit! It will teach you how to convert him/her!

So who is ready to head to the lake?


I wrote this review while participating in a campaign by Mom Central Consulting on behalf of Discover Boating and received a promotional item to thank me for taking the time to participate.
