About the BSC

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.

Hours & Season

BSC will be staffed daily from 10am-6pm May 5th-May 27th and 8am-8pm May 28th-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

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.

Parking

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.

Membership

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 discounted pricing on rental equipment.
