Experience a week-long beach-camping odyssey while learning to surf
"Drop-in" this summer to the best vacation of your life! Eli Howard's Overnight Surf Camps are a structured surfing adventure designed to provide five days of quality surfing instruction, exploratory activities and four nights of memorable beach camping experiences.
During each day of surf camp, students will receive up to four hours of quality surfing instruction. Students will spend their camp days learning important water safety skills, surfing fundamentals, and exploring the State Parks' coastal environments. Students will also have numerous opportunities to relax and enjoy other outdoor activities such as body boarding, daily yoga/stretching sessions, body surfing, and other organized beach games.Students are also provided with daily advanced surfing instruction, ocean conservation tips and their choice of themes and activities in the afternoon. Daily activities may include lagoon hikes, natural and cultural history of the California coast, marine exploration, and evolution of surfing culture.
Surf camp evenings will begin with a hearty meal prepared by Eli Howard's camp chef and instructors. Camp menus may include hot pancakes, authentic fish tacos, pizza, grilled burgers and homemade fries, tropical fruit, lunch deli spreads, and yummy Dutch oven desserts. All meals will have a variety of food choices as well as offer a vegetarian option. Special needs can always be arranged in advance.
As the sun sets over the Pacific students may relax with board games, enjoy our camp library with books and movies, play ping-pong, as well as lounge around a cozy campfire and enjoy s'mores, hot cocoa or cider. Camp staff will provide campfire entertainment and fun evening activities.
Eli Howard instructors support a non-competitive environment and put safety as their first priority. All staff members are First Aid and C.P.R. certified and head instructors are all American Red Cross certified lifeguards.
Overnight camps require a $200.00 non-refundable deposit two weeks prior to the start date of the camp and the remaining balance on the first day of camp. We accept cash or checks, Visa and Mastercard. (Please make checks payable to: Eli Howard Surf School).
