Summer Camp Spotlight: Cowabunga Surf & Watersports Summer Camp

By Melissa Jenkins, Cowabunga Surf and Watersports, Sponsored Content February 8, 2024

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.

Spring Break camp dates are March 11th - 15th. Summer week-long camps begin each Monday, May 27th through July 29th. 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).
