Volunteer at our first surfing camp! We need experienced surfers to be Wave Captains however NO EXPERIENCE necessary to be a Surfer's Assistant or a Dry Land volunteer!
Purple Surfing Camp

One day of surfing camp with Special Surfers. 4PM - 7:30PM Surfing camp will provide basic surfing introduction - and fun - and is open to all abilities.

Wave Captain: You are out in the water with your Special Surfer giving them a push to catch a wave! This position requires a few years of surfing experience. You need to be able to time the push so the Special Surfer will catch the wave without taking a pearl dive. BYOW (Bring your own wetsuit)

Surfer’s Assistant: You will get wet but surfing experience is not necessary. You will be closer to shore helping your Special Surfer get off the board when their ride is done and then get back out to the Wave Captain. You also act as traffic control and keep an eye on your Special Surfer and others surfing nearby to ensure there are no collisions.

Dry Land Volunteers- will help with activities on beach with group that is not in water. Activities may include: Scavenger hunt, Treasure Hunt, Beach Volleyball, kick ball etc.
