Beach Kids (5-8)
Our Beach Kids Camp is designed to provide a safe, fun, and informative introductory beach experience for boys and girls from the ages 5 to 8. We will participate in a variety of shallow water activities as well as a number of beach games. First time surfing and boogie boarding are done one-on-one with the instructor and we are very cognizant of our campers’ individual comfort zones. A typical day for Beach Kids is filled with surfing, beach games, and a great arts and crafts project that they can bring home to help cherish the memories of Camp. It is our goal to have them love and appreciate the beach as much as we do, so we do everything we can to make it a fun, positive, and rewarding experience.
In all initial water activities (surfing, boogie boarding, etc.), Beach Kids will be one-on-one with our trained staff. We want our campers to be safe and comfortable when they take on new activities, and we will do everything we can to ensure their safety and success.
Over the years we have developed a proven and successful method for initial water activity introduction. First, Beach Kids stand on their boards at the waters edge and feel the surge of the oncoming surf rush under their boards. Although it is only inches of water, with the enthusiasm of our hands-on instructors, our Beach Kids get their first feeling of “riding the surf”. From here, Beach Kids enter the water with their instructors and begin to ride waves in the Level 1 water depth. This gentle and informative introduction to the ocean has helped countless campers learn and understand important ocean and beach safety. Lessons they learn here, will stay with them for years to come.
Kids Camp (9-12)
Spending a summer or even a week at Sand and Sea Beach Camp is a great way for kids to build confidence and make new friends. The Kids Camp program offers a safe student-to-instructor ratio of four-to-one for initial water sessions. Our hands-on approach teaches kids the fundamentals of surfing, as well as, how to read the ocean and judge the waves. Kids also receive daily instruction from currently certified lifeguards on a rotating topic (CPR, first aid, rip tides, etc.). It’s fun, it’s safe, and it’s an experience kids will cherish for years. Oh, and you can be sure that after a day at surf camp your child will be sleeping soundly right after dinner!
This age group will participate in a wide range of beach games/activities, as well as Level 2 water sports. We as a staff have found this to be the most energetic! From beach volleyball to body surfing, and dodge-ball to swimming, the Kids Camp is truly where a kid can be a kid.
No video games here, just some good old-fashioned fun under the sun! Sand and Sea Beach Camps, here we come! Who’s coming with me?….
Teen Camp (13-17)
The Sand and Sea Teen Camp program provides a wonderful opportunity for teens to come together and share the joys of surfing. Both beginner and intermediate surfers learn to take their surfing to the next level with guidance from the staff of professional instructors. During the five-day program, teens also learn about ocean and beach safety from certified lifeguards. It’s a great way for teens to learn to surf, make new friends, and walk away with memories to last a lifetime.
Teen Camp operates mostly at a Level 3 water death and Teens are free to participate in the activity of their choice. From Surfing to Soccer, there is plenty for Teens to choose from.
Every Friday, parents, family, and friends are invited to our “Aloha Friday’s” beach days. This is an opportunity for parents and other family to come out and surf with their kids, and it’s free! That’s right, it’s free. The quality interactions between Teens, Staff, and Parents on Aloha Fridays have been great contributors to our programs success and we simply want to give back. So C’mon down to the beach, see your kid in action or give it a try yourself – Aloha and Cowabunga!
