Do you have access to a river or lake?
Want to make it more accessible for campers of all ages? Summer camps are great educational resources and camp directors and counselors provide great opportunities for kids to learn about nature, the outdoors, fishing, swimming, and more. If you want to offer more opportunities for kids to enjoy the water, a large aluminum boat dock or dock patio with walkway systems may be the perfect solution.
Large docks offer more than just swimming – fishing, sunbathing, and picnics are great options for kids to spend time soaking up the sun.
To make sure everyone’s able to enjoy the dock, consider these accessories and upgrades:
- Install ladders to make swimming easy
- Use guardrails to make sure everyone stays safe
- Consider ADA-compliant ramps to help those in wheelchairs or with walkers to access the dock safely
- Use slip-resistant decking
Other equipment to have on hand – life jackets, fishing equipment, dock furniture like chairs and tables, and for nighttime excursions, consider dock lighting.
Dock design is an important part of the dock building process. A large, rectangular shape is easy to build and functional, but does it really serve your needs, or could you have something more unique? Customize your dock for your space and your needs and try our dock designer!
