Summer 2020 was a success!
The season has ended and, through it all, we have completed our mission. Our camps ran successfully all summer long and campers left with huge smiles on their faces. We worked through this unprecedented time but due to the extensive training given to our staff, safety measures in place, and nearly 20 years running programs, we were able to safely navigate through the pandemic, big waves and small waves, and a hurricane.
We want to take a moment to say thank you. Thank you! Thank you for choosing us and trusting us with your safety and your camper’s safety. We exist because of families and individuals like you. Our goal this year is the same as it has always been: to cultivate a love and respect for the ocean by building confidence, developing character and inspiring stoke through safety, fun and learning. You are a part of our successful mission!
For the most part, we were blessed with better waves than usual. Our summer housing at the KOA allowed residential programs to easily travel to more surf spots from North Topsail Beach to Carolina Beach in search of the best waves. It was amazing!
We also want to take this moment to thank our summer staff. They are the boots on the ground for this company and their diligence and hard work was what kept participants safe during our programs. We couldn’t do this without them, and they blew it out of the water this summer. This summer we welcomed back many returning staff along with some new, amazing faces. Each one of them did a fantastic job with the ever-changing environment and took ownership of their individual roles. They achieved something that only a select few people have done in living memory, successfully (and safely) ran programs through a pandemic. We cannot thank them enough.
As we go into this off season, we hope that you all stay safe this coming year and keep getting out in the water. Thank you again for being a part of our Surf Camp family. Summer 2021 schedule will be coming soon. Hopefully, we will see you in the lineup!
