Surf's Up Beach Camp
Don’t miss another wave!
Come experience why our Southern California beaches are some of the most coveted beaches on the planet. Located at beautiful Malibu beach, our beach camp campers will get to jump in the waves, boogie board with their friends, dig and build sandcastles, play sports, and roll around in the warm summer sand. Our beach specialists will organize exciting group activities while fostering an appreciation for our Mother Ocean and creating a respect for our coastline.
Campers will learn:
• New interests in our coastal ecosystems
• Connection with Mother Ocean
• Ocean science – including information about waves, tides and marine biology
• Environmental awareness
Throw on your bathing suit and your sunscreen and join us to become one with the beach!
