Event Details

*Previously run under the name Share the Stoke Surf Camp.
UPDATE: change of location due to weather event.
Two week-long surf camp running from January 9th-13th and 23rd-27th 2023 (9am-3:30pm each day). At Midway Beach, a safe beach for kids to learn the fundamentals of surfing, develop respect for the environment and make new friends. With a soft, sandy bottom, predictable conditions, a lack of hazards, and plenty of attentive, passionate and fully-trained instructors, your child will safely play in the waves and develop confidence, ocean knowledge and safety. The primary goal of this camp is to teach kids to properly assess ocean risks, have fun in nature and introduce them to a healthy activity they can do for the rest of their life!
Kids (aged 6-12yrs) will be split into 3 groups depending on their level of surfing (beginner, intermediate and advanced), with the ability to advance their skills throughout the week and advance to the next group. The coaches are there to provide water safety and to maximise fun! There will be tandem rides, party waves and plenty of beach games.
A rough outline of what a normal day would look like:

       -Sunscreen up

      -Warmup game

      -Get kids into wetsuits/split into groups

      -Health and safety discussion

      -2 hours of water time (or land time, no one is being forced to surf)

      -Pull kids out of the water for lunch

      -Post lunch discussion about ocean knowledge and beach safety

      -2 more hours of water time

      -High fives and pack up for the day.

*Friday Finals Day: On the last day of the camp we have some epic activities planned! We will provide a Friday lunch, followed by a contest for the kids that all parents are invited to join. We will be getting trophies for each division winner, as well as other awards (most stoked, best attitude, etc).

-What is provided:  Certified surf instructors, sun cream, water and a safe and friendly environment to learn to surf! Each kid will also get an Ocean Rhythms hat. We also have a professional photographer that will be coming to camp one day (likely Tuesday or Wednesday). They will take a number of high-quality photos that will be available for all parents at no extra cost. 

-What is not:  Lunch, snacks and photo package.  Let us know if you want some water angles of your kids sharing in the stoke! You will be able to get a number of high-quality photos of your kid to hang on the wall!
