HUNTINGTON BEACH ADVENTURE CAMP
With an emphasis on surfing, Corky Carroll’s Huntington Beach Adventure Camp is the perfect program for kids that want to surf but are still getting their feet wet! It’s crucial for children to feel comfortable and safe when learning to surf. They apply the same teaching system used in their Surf Camp but modify it as a fun learning experience geared towards younger kids. Under the direct supervision and guidance of our instructors, children will be introduced to the sport of surfing while learning and practicing ocean safety.
Understanding that everyone learns at their own pace, they’ve designed this program to meet the individual interests and skill level of each child. With instructors close by, kids will use kickboards, double boogie boards, surfboards, and tandem surfing to improve swimming and surfing skills while building their confidence and comfort level in and out of the water. Instructors will also teach them how to calmly and safely maneuver through shorebreak waves. With games, social activities, and surf training, it’s all about having fun at the beach and staying safe!
Spots are limited this summer. Please note if you register after 3pm on the Friday prior to the week you wish to sign up for, there will be no discounted rate available.

With direct supervision and guidance, kids will get prepared for the Junior Lifeguard program with short swims past the waves, calm breathing techniques, and safely maneuvering through shore break waves.
