Let's Go Surfin' Now

Believe it or not, this is the time of year when you need to start planning summer camps for your kids. Summer vacation plans need to be sorted out months in advance. Travel and vacation arrangements need to be made, work schedules adjusted, decisions about summer sports need to be made and summer camps need to be reserved. If you wait until spring, all the good summer camps will be filled up and your kids will be doomed to hanging around with too much time on their hands.
Summer camps keep kids out of trouble, offer tremendous enrichment potential, help them make new friends, keep them active athletically and give them a chance to see new places and try new things. My kids LOVE going to summer camp, whether it's an overnight camp or a day camp. In the past, my kids have gone to sailing camp, boy and girl scout camp, soccer camp, baseball camp, basketball camp and my son has even gone to marine biology camp on a marine research vessel.

My oldest is pretty much done with summer camps. She's not too interested in teen camp, she wants to work to save for a trip to England and a new laptop. The others all want to go to camp.

I found a really cool summer camp called Surf Camp. They offer over night summer camps for kids, teens, even adults. They also have "family adventure camps" so the whole gang can go surfing. Their big draw is they teach kids how to surf within the context of summer camp. They've been in all sorts of media from National Geographic Magazine to the Wheel of Fortune! As you'd probably guess, they get would be surfers from all over the world. Surf camp runs programs in North Carolina, Hawaii, the Caribbean, Costa Rica,even Australia.

I don't know if my kids want to go to Surf camp, but the Caribbean Family package sounds like fun. If your kid is interested, you better get going on reservations because they're first come, first served and the spots fill up quick. Happy camp hunting!
