(AGES 5-8)

Little Groms Summer Surf Camps 2023 will begin the first week of June and run thru the first week of September.  Camp hours are 9-12pm Monday thru Friday at Moonlight Beach Encinitas.   

We start each day at surf camp together as a group stretching, talking about the current ocean conditions and going over our daily lesson in ocean safety. After evaluating the current conditions and talking about ocean safety we head out for our first water session. During our water sessions we surf, swim, boogie board and bodysurf. We allow each student to go at their own pace during the water sessions and we never push them past their comfort level.  This helps them build their confidence gradually.  After our first water session we take a snack break so the kids can refuel and get a break from the sun.  After the snack break we run and play some high energy beach games and then get back into the ocean for our next water session. During our water sessions we emphasize the importance beach and water safety.  A few of our points of emphasis are:

Rip Currents- how they form and how to stay calm and swim out of them

Tides- how to identify high and low tides and how they create different ocean conditions

Sandbars- how they are created and how they affect wave conditions and the currents  

Stingrays- we teach the ‘stingray shuffle’ and how this helps to keep away stingrays

Cost for the camp:  $385 for the week

Where to meet:  Both drop off and pick up is at the Little Groms tent at Moonlight Beach 

What to bring:  Must provide your own wetsuit.  We provide surfboards and boogie boards, although you may bring your own boogie board.   Make sure and pack a snack and water each day along with a dry towel.   

This summer we will be running surf camps in the morning from 9-12 and scheduling private surf lessons during the afternoon from 1-3pm.   Please call the surf shop to discuss private lesson details and to make reservations.
