We are one of the only camps in the area that offers Surfing as an activity. We offer a double overnight surfing trip to boys that have completed the 5th grade. We have beginner foam surfboards of all different sizes so that every boy’s size and ability level can be catered to.
We take the boys to Folly Beach which is about a four-hour drive from camp. Folly Beach is not only a stunning beach but it also provides excellent waves for teaching surfing. The boys get the chance to go surfing four times while on the trip. They camp out at James Island campground. On the second day, the boys go surfing in the early morning and afternoon, in the middle of the day they take a break from the sun and catch a movie at the local movie theatre. The boys have pizza on the pier for their last night of the trip. They wake up early on the final day to catch the waves before heading back to camp.
Our counselors are all highly skilled surfers themselves and receive extensive training in surfing instruction before the summer begins. They can cater to boys who are trying surfing for the first time and require encouragement and intensive instruction as well as the boys who are more advanced and want to advance their skills.
