Welcome to the new beachfront home for the WND&WVS community of passionate watermen & women. This is the Burlington Surf Club.
We hope you'll join us.
The BSC is located in Burlington's south end on the campus of what is currently the Blodgett Oven Factory. Until now, this pristine piece of waterfront real estate has only been accessible to factory employees. With its long sandy beach and expansive shady lawn, the convenience and experience of accessing Lake Champlain couldn't be better. Multiple post and beam storage barns are on site to house an extensive line-up of top of the line equipment for paddlers and windsurfers of all levels. Members and guests will check in daily with our staff and enjoy access to changing rooms and storage lockers before beginning their day on the beach. Come down to sit in the sand, spread out on the lawn, jump in the lake, catch the sunset, or participate in a daily schedule of activities both on and off the water.
BSC will be staffed from 8am-8pm daily May 1st-October 31st
Lifeguards will be posted from 1pm-6pm M-F/10am-6pm Sat-Sun from mid June through Labor Day.
Off season equipment rentals/lessons/tours will be available by appointment
Members storing personal boards on site will have access during off hours with outdoor storage racks and individual locking systems.
Children under the age of 12 must be accompanied by an adult. Children ages 12-18 are welcome at BSC during open hours without adult supervision. There will be lifeguards on duty from 1pm-6pm weekdays, and 10am-5pm on the weekends. Looking for something for your child to do in the morning? Consider enrolling them in one of our ½ day week long windsurfing/paddling camps.
Blodgett Ovens will still be open during the summer of 2018 so workday parking on site will be limited. BSC is located on the waterfront bike path, so both members and day pass holders are encouraged to ride bikes to the club to avoid any workday parking issues.
Access to Burlington’s newest lakeside sandy beach, convenient parking, huge lawn with shady trees, volleyball courts, picnic tables, lifeguards, and guaranteed good times are just a few of the benefits of joining the Burlington Surf Club. In addition, everything you need to play on the lake will be right at your fingertips with an expert staff to help get you geared up and on the water with member discounts on pricing.
Not interested in signing up for the entire season? No problem. Come on down any day you like to sit on the beach, spread out on the grass, read a book, rent a paddle board, or just check out the action. This is also the perfect option for all you tourists/vacationers who are enjoying Burlington for a short time before having to head back home.
In all honesty, we'd like to get you out on the water as much as possible so that you feel and experience the benefits of a healthy and active lifestyle. As a community, we're all very fortunate to have the great Lake Champlain right in our backyard. We believe that when you learn to enjoy what the lake has to offer, you'll gain a stronger sense of purpose to keep it clean and safe. Here are just some of the many standing weekly activities you can sign up and participate in while enjoying your day at the beach.
Our storage barns are stocked full of paddleboards and windsurfers from the top brands in the industry. All equipment is a breeze to access and get down to the beach and our staff will be on hand to help you. Members will be able to call and reserve all rental equipment in advance. Have an extra hour at lunch? Blaze down from the office, use our dressing rooms for the quick change, grab a windsurfer, pop on the pre-rigged sail and go. You'll be back at the desk in an hour and a half. Windsurfing on my lunch break? Am I dreaming? It's now a thing.
