kids surf campWhat will it cost?

  • 1 Day –   €30

  • 4 Days – €90
  • 5 Days – €100

As always, all surf lessons are fully supervised by our instructors who are all fully qualified Irish Surfing Association Surf Instructors and Beach Lifeguards…..oh yeah and extremely patient!
They also have completed the Irish Sports Council’s “Code of Ethics and Good Practice for working with children in Sport” course.
Childrens´ first experiences with the ocean will shape their attitudes to it for the rest of their lives, and so our Kids Camps are designed to get kids off to a fun and safe start. Lessons are held in maximum waist depth water and instructors are in the water at all times, so children don´t have to be very strong swimmers.
We provide all equipment, wetsuits, wetsuit boots and soft surfboards, so all they need to bring is their swimming gear, a towel and some warm clothes for afterwards. Each day throughout the camp, while learning to surf, we will also introduce them to various topics such as surf safety, learning about rip currents and tides etc
At the end of the week we finish with a surf competition where the kids get to show off their skills. They can also take part in the ISA’s Whitewater Surf Skills Awards (for an extra 10 euros). This allows the surfers to have their skills recognised and on passing the different levels they receive a cert and log book to record their achievements.
Kids camp places are limited!
