Pure Life Surf School Summer Camp


Looking for a fun summer camp? Check out the 2019 summer surf camps offered by Pure Life Surf School! 

Kids Ages 7-16 look forward to our Daytona Beach Surf Camp all year long. We are a surf school that grew up surfing in Daytona Beach and Ponce Inlet. Our core values are instilled in our kids as we enhance their surfing skills, knowledge of their ocean environment, and surfing etiquette; especially when surfing down at the inlets and other crowded surf spots. Talk to any kid or parent that has ever been in our camp and see what they have to say. Our kids have a blast, meet new friends, and make memories at our summer camp! No other camp compares to the level of fun that is achieved at Pure Life Surf School.

Here's a typical surf camp schedule:

  • 9:00am We head down to the beach and start yoga stretching
  • 9:25am Kids head down to the water and learn to surf. Training is down in and out of the water.
  • 11:45am Lunch time, fun time, campers gather lunch and walk up to the pavilions with their instructors.
  • 12:30pm SUMMER CAMP ENDS. EXTENDED DAY BEGINS. Back down to the beach for more surfing!
  • 1:35pm Kids get out of the water and gather their belongings. They head up to the top to rinse off and wait for pick up.
  • NOTE: During the day we take periodic water and re-apply sunscreen breaks to ensure our campers are hydrated and sun protected.

Surf camp prices vary, depending on the schedule you would like.  A single day camp is $65 per day, extended day camp is $75 per day, surf camp week is $225, and extended day surf camp week is $275.  Surf camp is offered all summer long and you can join at any time. Camp location is at Frank Rendon Park in Daytona Beach Shores. For more information or to get registered, click here.
