Click on the question to view the answer 


Will my child need to wear a face mask?

Face mask are not required outside or during our summer surf camp program. Please talk to your camper about social distancing. If your child is feeling sick, please do not bring them to camp.

My child has a friend & or sibling also attending camp. Can they be in the same group?

Yes, once you enroll your child through our website, there will be a questionnaire window that pops up. You will be able to list the names of the other children that you are requesting your child to be with.

What level of surfers are the other kids attending the camp?

Our camp caters to a lot of different skill levels. We have kids attending camp who are first time surfers and kids who surf with us regularly. Our instructors can accommodate all skill levels. If you would like to let us know something about your child's skill level, there will be a questionnaire are you enroll your child where you can add in a comment.

I have 2 kids that are in different age groups. Can they surf together?

For safety & structure reasons we like to keep our groups close in age. If we have large age gaps in one group, it can separate the kids in the water making it difficult for our instructors to accommodate everyone in the group. Largely mixing ages can also affect the overall flow of the camp. Kids who are very different in age have different personalities. We find that kids enjoy themselves more when they are around their peers.

Do I need to check-in at the shop before camp starts?

Do I need to check-in at the shop before camp starts?

If my child is enrolled in full day and wants to switch to half day can I get a refund?

Any changes to your reservation must be made 1 week before the start of camp. We do not allow any changes once the week of camp has started.

My child has his own surfboard, can he use it during camp?

Soft-top surfboards (aka "Fomies") are always welcome at surf camp. If the surfboard is hard, it will be up to the Camp Director to allow the student to use the surfboard. If this is the child's first time at our surf camp we will require the student to use one of our "fomie" surfboards for the first couple of days. After that it will be up to the camp director to determine if the surf conditions and the students ability to handle their surfboard in the water is a safe situation. **Safety in the water is a huge priority to our staff and hard surfboards can be a hazard in large groups. We make sure that all of our campers are in safe conditions and using safe equipment. **
