Beach Camps (ages 3-7)
Our Beach Camps (ages 3-7) and Surf Camp (ages 8-17) are next to each other making it an easy one stop drop for you!
Camp Hours: 9-12pm, 12pm-3pm or 9-3pm
Extended Hours: 8:30am, 4pm & 5pm pick up available
We offer flexible scheduling. The owner, being a parent herself, designed the camps for parents that need to set their kids schedule conveniently around their busy lives. When you register, you simply select the “days” or “weeks” (does not have to be consecutive) in the spring and summer months and can conveniently log into your account and move the days if something comes up. To retain our low student to instructor ratio we ask changes to be final a week in advance.
ABOUT THE CAMP:
Perfect Day Surf Camp is ran and operated by a mother of two young ones who understands children’s needs. We offer wetsuits and a low student to instructor ratio with CPR, First Aid, AED and Lifeguard certified instructors. Our goal is to teach surf lessons and boogie board lessons to all ages even our 3 year olds & non-swimmers (if conditions allow). We start on the beach with team building games including capture the flag and various relays that encourage kids to run to instructors in the water helping them understand the waves, tides, currents and white wash. Patience is key at this age because one bad experience from a wave can set them back so during surf & boogie board time we teach one on one and we also include building sand castles, body surfing and simply jumping over waves while we build their confidence by educating on how to manage waves and whitewash, where to take off to catch waves, how to swim past the break (wave) and back in safely (for our swimmers). We have mastered the language of “don’t ask”and say “it’s your turn” without forcing to encourage all kids to try to surf. Camp Itinerary & Beach Camp Daily Topics.
We encourage parents to only visit on Fridays to avoid performance anxiety. This will help your child progress in our goals of creating waterman. Also, it is difficult for the staff to know who is watching your child when they run off to be with you. Wetsuits are provided but the sizes are limited. A size too small or too big will still work.
WHAT TO BRING: (directions & what to bring emailed to you after registering)
lunch, snacks, bottle water (refills available), towel, sweatshirt, hat, sunscreen, warm change of clothes, wetsuit & boogie board if you have one (we provide both). Money is optional for restaurants, the pier stores, farmers market runs & camp hat (depending on location).
Campers must be potty trained and comfortable enough to leave without the parent present. Children with separation anxiety will not be ready for our camp.
