About Surf Camp
LEARN TO SURF THIS SUMMER!What better way to truly enjoy the summer than to spend a week at the beach? At Surf Camp our campers spend two full 2-hour surf sessions in the water each day, one in the morning and one in the afternoon. Surfing hardly never gets dull since everything is always changing: the tides, the waves, good rides, and wipeouts. But if someone's interest wanders, we can guarantee that they will not! A day at the beach is fun no matter what, and Surf Camp offers a range of other fun beach activities including body boarding, nature hikes, snorkeling, volleyball, soccer, ultimate frisbee, water games, and the occasional sand castle contest! Last year we even invented a Tow Surf Challenge!
There is no better place to learn to surf than with Surf Camp at Scarborough Beach! Our Surf Camp is the original New England Surf Camp and has taught more than 2,000 kids and adults how to enjoy one of the oldest sports in the world.
Our day camp is for kids aged 9-15 and runs Monday through Friday, 9AM to 3PM. Surf Lessons are also available for kids and adults of all ages and can be taken privately or as a group. You can read answers to some of our most Frequently Asked Questions by visiting the Surf Camp Blog.
At Surf Camp our two most important goals are FUN and SAFETY! We maintain a student to instructor ratio of 4:1, and all of our camp counselors are experienced surfers who are additionally certified in Life Saving, First-Aid, and CPR.
Our EquipmentWe teach our campers to surf on high-quality BIC surfboards with safe and flexible Proteck fins. This board and fin combination provides an easy, fun, and safe introduction to surfing. Our wetsuits are full suits and we introduce new suits every year; either way, they'll keep you warm even on the coldest Maine days. We have surfboards and wetsuits to fit toddlers and adults of all sizes!
We sell most of our equipment at the end of each season, so none of our equipment is more than 2 seasons old. Keep your eyes on your e-mail for announcements about our Surf Camp Garage Sales!! Used (and sometimes New) surfboards, wetsuits, leashes, t-shirts, sweat shirts, wax, videos, surf books, hats, wax combs, and much more is all available atthe Surf Camp Shop.
Rain! Rain! Go Away!We can't help it, but sometimes we have bad weather and we can't stay at the beach. On those rare occasions we take a field trip to visit local Surf Shops, and if the weather is really bad we stop by Surf Camp HQ, just up the road from the beach. But we guarantee no one will be bored! It's a nice break to relax, shop in the Surf Camp Shop, watch surf videos, or play Ping-Pong or Xbox. We always find a way to have fun!
