At Cowabunga Surf and Watersports Camp, every camper is a Rock Star! Small, supervised groups rotate throughout the day surfing, skim boarding, body boarding, and paddle boarding as they are instructed in water sports and water safety skills by our screened and trained, kid-loving staff. Surf competitions, pizza parties, and beach games add to the fun!
Consistently-enhanced safety features include a very low camper-to-counselor ratio and an electronic check-in and check-out so parents always know their child’s whereabouts. Completely open-air, the oversized pavilion at Jensen public beach is our “home base,” used at drop-off, pick-up, lunch times, and when weather threatens. In extreme weather situations, our BungaBus is used to house campers until conditions are safe.
Additionally, top staffers are Lifeguard certified, all counselors are CPR and First Aid trained, and each camper and counselor is required to wear a camp rash guard throughout the day so everyone — including the professional lifeguards — knows who belongs together.
Lunch and a drink is included daily, as is the camp rash guard, a camp duffle bag, and all equipment.
Weekly camps begin each Monday, May 31st through August 9th. Camp times are 9:00 AM to 1:00 PM or 9:00 AM to 3:00 PM. Campers who choose the longer day receive additional one-on-one instruction or fun time at the beach with the counselor of their choice. Pre- and after-camp care is offered for an additional fee (24-hour notice required).

"Cowabunga Surf Camp is amazing! Wonderful counselors, top notch security, and fun for the kids! Can’t recommend it more! It was a favorite camp this summer and I was super impressed by my child’s surfing ability by the end of the week, but the best part was how much fun he had! Couldn’t have asked for anything more!”
"What a Great experience for my son - a week at surf camp in a very well organized, professional and beautiful setting. Safety and security of the campers were paramount! The staff was friendly and went above and beyond expectations. Thank you Cowabunga!!!”
"Our daughter went to surf camp this summer and we can’t speak highly enough about the counselors. It was an overall great experience. From the minute we arrived they were very organized and professional. Our daughter is about to turn 5 and she was one of the youngest participants in the camp and the supervision was incredible. Each morning she woke up super excited - we will be back and we will definitely encourage others to go! Her first camp experience was perfect :)"
