Rainy & Flat Day Alternatives

Lets face it, we live in South Florida. It’s a harsh reality but its gonna be flat most the summer! Floridians also are used to a quick afternoon summer storm before the sun comes out for the rest of the day. In the event of bad weather, camp still goes on. However should there be thunder and lightning we take the kids off the beach immediately and seek shelter under the covered pavilion.  There we are safe to do arts and crafts and play games with the kids till the bad weather passes and it is safe to return to the beach. Plus...worry not my future shredders. We have a ton of fun and radical ways to make sure the fun never stops at surf camp.

"This is the 2nd summer of my daughter doing this surf camp and it won’t be the last! She loves it! Even if the waves aren’t cooperating the instructors keep the campers having plenty of fun with beach games, wave mat, or tubing. The instructors really love the kids and have a ton of fun with them. My daughter is really getting the hang of surfing now. See ya next summer!"
-Michelle (Annapolis, Maryland)
 
"Zane had the best experience as a 1st time surf camper. The one-on-one interaction as each child tried their 1st wave was irreplaceable. But, the best part was watching how the counselors always addressed nonproductive behavior w/a quick & to the point talk ending w/a smile & high five!"
-Cynthia W
 
"Excellent camp for all ages. My 12 year old just finished a week with Island Camps...the counselors were attentive, fun and made sure many different activities were planned as well as surfing. The visit to Gumbo Limbo and tubing in the ocean were top of the list. Highly recommend!"
-Sian M
