What if surf conditions are not safe?
Our priority is the safety of our participants. If the conditions are not safe at surf camp, we supplement with beach activities. If you are scheduled for a surf lesson, we will reschedule or cancel and refund.
How early can we drop off our participants?
No earlier than 8:45 a.m. We are still setting up and cannot supervise the participants.
What are surf camp hours?
9am – 3pm for regular surf camps (pick-up 2:30PM-3PM)
9am – 12 noon for Mini Makos
What if I’m late to drop off?
In an effort to keep the camp running efficiently, we do not allow arrivals after 9:30am unless you have made previous arrangements with Christian Brock or camp director.
How early can I pick up?
If the participant has somewhere they need to be, please tell the instructors at check-in when you will be picking your participant up. Otherwise we ask that you do not pick up before 2:45 pm, as we like them to participate in the camp chant & clean up.
What if I’m late to pick up?
We allow a grace period of 10 minutes. After that we charge $1.00 every 1 minute.
Are there makeup days if I miss a day?
If your participant is sick please call or email us before the start of camp. We will schedule a makeup day. There are no makeup days for no shows.
Can I stay and watch?
If you choose to stay, please stay off to the side of camp where the child cannot easily see you. We want the participants to fully participate in the camp and they perform better and adhere to camp rules if they don’t know that you are around. The participant needs to adhere to camp rules & stay in the camp boundaries. If the participant sees you and wanders off to be near you, it is hard to know who is watching them.
What if we need to cancel?
There are NO refunds on cancellations. You may reschedule no less than one week prior to original scheduled date(s). No makeup sessions for missed days
Can we do drop-ins?
We do not.
What do we bring to camp?
