Surf + Climb Camp
Combining surf and stone, this 2-day camp gives campers a unique experience that they will never forget! Each day starts at Scarborough Beach, surfing until a beach picnic lunch, then the campers will be shuttled to the Salt Pump. The afternoon will be fully staffed by our Salt Pump team, so the campers can enjoy our 45' walls on any of our 40 top-rope stations.
Total group size is limited to only 12 kids per weekend, so participants will enjoy lots of 1-on-1 coaching. The program takes place over selected weekends throughout the summer from 9am to 3pm.
Sessions: July 20-21, August 10-11
