Looking for itinerary feedback

I am planning on taking my neice to Greece for her 13th birthday in mid-June 2017. I will be giving her a guidebook this summer but wanted to have a probable itinerary at that time. It will, of course change as she decides what she is most interested in. She is very sporty and will want to try all the water sports so that is going into thoughts on picking which island to go to.

Any suggestions/thoughts on the below possible itinerary? I do want to make sure we don't make the common mistake of trying to do too much in the time we have so please let me know if we are.

Day one- (Saturday)fly to Athens and then to island

Day 2-5(Sunday-Wednesday) island (return to Athens Wednesday) Milos and sifnos? Naxos? Paros? (Leaning towards Paros at the moment but that keeps changing)

Day 6-14 Athens and Peloponnes-

Day 6 drive to Nafplio via Corinth and Mycinea

Day 7- Nafplio water sports/see town

Day 8- Nafplio then drive to Dimitsana.

Day 9 float trip/hiking Overnight in Dimitsana

Day10 hike in gorge and drive to Olympia

Day 11 see Olympia and drive to Delphi

Day 12 Delphi and ? End in Athens.

Day 13 Athens

Day 14 Athens

Day. 15 fly home

I haven't been to all of the places on your list - but if you can fit in Meteora it is utterly amazing (about a 3 hour drive from Delphi I think)

The Olympia and Delphi portions seem a little rushed to me. I have stayed 2 nights in each. Actually I was just in Arachova, about 6 miles from Delphi and really enjoyed staying and eating there.
Also I would only do one island because you really only have 3 days by the time you fly there. There is enough in either Naxos or Paros to keep you busy for that amount of time.
