Feature: Summer Programming
HERO USA Summer Program
HERO USA is dedicated to helping kids create a lifelong passion for summer sports and we are expanding and growing our summer sports training curriculum. Currently, we have developed a strong foundation in paddle sports education. There are many reasons why certain sports are typically out of reach for a lot of the disadvantaged community - from lack of access to the equipment to even knowing how to just make these activities possible. We have promoted kayaking, canoeing, stand up paddleboarding, safe water skiing and wakeboard instruction. In the future, we will be expanding summer programs to include running, biking, mountain climbing, wind surfing, and more. Below is a list of successful programs that HERO USA has partnered on or developed. We eliminate obstacles and open a world of possibility to outdoor activity during the summer months.
Paddle In the City Program:
Ohio Adaptive Adventures:
Jazz & Rib Fest | Columbus Arts Festival:
DRN Paddle sports Safety Education Class:
HERO USA Water Sports Weekend:
HERO USA strives to fulfill our charitable purpose by partnering with other youth based organizations including schools, churches, government agencies and clubs. We offer special pricing and packages that are designed to help meet the tight budget constraints of any non profit. Each organization will have the ability to choose up to 2 (two) dates for a private paddling session down a central Ohio waterway. (*minimum class size must be met)
(no experience necessary) Volunteer your time to help children learn to paddlesports safely & pass on your knowledge and passion for the sport or just help keep track of everyone and be “a parent” to all of us on the water. Spend a few hours helping our kids and join us on the water!

HERO USA is a 100% volunteer based organization. We rely heavily on donation support to continue to expand our programming.
