Summer of surf is a small beach camp for ages 8 and up that primarily serves the San Fernando/San Gabriel valley. Our camp is very unique in that we only have 9 campers at a time, which, for the camper feels less like camp and a lot more like going to the beach with your friends. Since safety is our highest concern we have 3 experienced and certified Counselors, giving us a 3:1 ratio. This is a drastically smaller ratio than most camps, allowing us to give highly individualized attention. We offer Transportation to and from favorite Beaches from 3 pick up/drop off locations in the area. We operate from June 9th to September 5th, starting much sooner and closing much later than most camps. Beach goers typically join us for a week at a time, but as long as you sign up early you can choose the days or weeks that best suit your family plans.
Our goal is to give an outdoor immersive experience that develops physical skill and awareness and most importantly, help develop self esteem. 95% of our campers have pictures of them standing up surfing within the first week. However, if surfing doesn’t much interest you, we do plenty of ocean swimming, boogie-boarding, skim-boarding, castle and tunnel building, frisbee, football, sand soccer, and any other beach activity you can think of.
Summer of Surf also offers a CIT (counselor in training) program for beach goers 14 and up. This is a great opportunity for your teen to take on some responsibility and develop leadership skills while having fun in the surf.
With the overwhelming response received last August, as well as a long waiting list, we are expecting to have a lot of interest for Summer 2014. There are only 9 seats available in our new van so sign up soon to secure your spot!
