La Jolla Surf Camp (5-8yrs)



La Jolla Surf Camp is San Diego's number one surf camp for children! Since 1999 La Jolla Surf Camp has been teaching boys and girls how to surf in a safe and fun environment. The surf camp is all about fun activities, ocean and beach awareness and of course surfing. Our camp surf instructors are all C.P.R. and First-Aid trained and ready to teach your child the basics of surfing and enjoying the ocean.

The La Jolla Surf Camp for kids ages 5 to 8 years old focuses on building inner self-confidence and learning about the beach environment and surfing skills.  The surf camp takes place at La Jolla Shores, a sandy bottom beach protected from the summer south swells by the peninsula at La Jolla Cove. This prime San Diego location is the perfect place to learn. We provide your child with a colored La Jolla Surf Camp rashguard and a soft surfboard so that learning is easy.

Whether your child is a beginner or has some surfing experience, the small groups allow our surf instructors to provide your child with the proper coaching. For peace of mind, please note that Surf Diva Surf School is our parent company. Surf Diva is one of the biggest and most respected surf schools in the world, this is your guarantee that your child will learn the right way with the best coaches.
