Aloha Beach Camp provides many fun activities for boys, girls, kids and teens at our summer camp program in Hawaii. Surfing is perhaps the most popular among the campers. We are always heartened to see that so many campers want to learn to surf!
When you really think about is, you can see why campers are so fired up about learning to surf.
Surfing is a safe, health, and fun activity, not to mention the sport was invented in Hawaii! And best of all, it takes place outdoors -- quite an appealing notion considering kids have been cooped up inside so long from COVID!
But how exactly does our surf camp work?
The Aloha Beach Camp Hawaii Surf Camp Program is a unique experience; a complete immersion in the Hawaiian Culture. Located on the beautiful island of Oahu, with surfing as its central focus, the camp will teach the fundamentals of surfing from a uniquely Hawaiian point of view at world-famous Waikiki Beach.
Welcoming kids between the ages of 7 to 16, campers will learn surfing technique and ocean-safety skills. Camp participants learn the basic techniques of riding waves, water safety, and the ocean environment.
Evening activities allow participants the special opportunity to learn about Polynesian culture and the ancient Hawaiian lifestyle which centered around the sea. Local Hawaiian surfers help teach the surfing, and well-known Hawaiian heritage specialists make guest appearances each evening to pass along their local lore.
Daily surf sessions are designed to build a strong foundation in the fundamentals of surfing and ocean science. Knowledgeable instructors team up in small peer groups that are age and skill appropriate. Lessons are then customized and specific to each group’s needs.
A maximum of four camper participants per instructor ensures consistency, familiarity and a vast amount of individualized attention guaranteeing acceleration in confidence, fitness
and personal growth.
If your child wants to learn to surf this summer and is looking for an epic sleepaway summer camp experience unavailable anywhere else, discover Aloha Beach Camp Hawaii!
