Our surf camps teach your child ocean safety and knowledge that will stick with them for the rest of their lives. Surfing is our primary focus throughout the day/week, but safety is always our number one priority. Ventura Makos can assure you that your participant will learn more than just how to stand up on a board; we offer a series of specific trainings for all skill levels (beginner, intermediate & advanced).

-Parents, if you are staying at the beach while your participant is in camp, please stay off to the side out of the camp’s perimeters to insure social distancing and so your child fully participates in the camp. It is fine if they want to have snack time/lunch time with you if they let us know, but we appreciate them participating fully in the camp’s day schedule
