California Surfing Adventure – Not for 2021

Ages 13 to 18, 10 Days

Cost: $3,950

The journey begins in Los Angeles where the campers will meet their teammates before heading up to the Ventura area. This course gives campers an opportunity to learn the basics of surfing or further hone their surfing skills! Campers will progress through 2 days of surfing instruction at a time (totaling 6 days) with expeditions along the southern coast of CA in between.  Campers begin by learning how waves are created, about the types of surf breaks, and the importance of safety and stewardship in this dynamic environment. Then it’s time to test their balance and coordination as they experience first-hand the joy of riding a wave.

On expedition days, campers will visit the Channel Islands, an area rich in biodiversity and scenic vistas. Here they will also discover the surrounding kelp forests and sea caves while swimming, snorkeling, or sea kayaking. Campers will also spend a day rock climbing or stand up paddleboarding before returning for their final 2 days of surfing!

My Camp Experience

"I just want to tell you how happy I am that SOAR exits. We have tried so many programs over the summer for my son and SOAR is the only one that has been a perfect fit. It gives him so much confidence. He loves telling people about how far he has hiked or how high he has climbed. The outdoors is also very calming to him and just puts his mind at ease. Thank you. We are looking forward to many more summers with SOAR."
