PARENTS AND KIDS SURF CAMPS
Want to learn to surf with your kids in fun filled day surf camp experiences? Two mid week surf camp experiences for parents and their kids, ages 6 to 12 years old, offered in July and August. We chose midweek to avoid the busyness both in the waves with excessive weekend surfer traffic and to avoid the difficulty of finding parking on weekends at the state park. Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays of each month’s camp event, you can book one, two or all three days of camps. Students must attend the first day of camp, and then can opt in for additional second and third days of camps, in order to keep the learning flow cohesive. You will have the option of one, two or three days of camps at Active.com online registration when you book your space. Times each day are 9 to 3, 11-3 and 11-3.
