Living the dream at Surf Camp Thirteen.

Oh yes, lucky 13 is upon us (note: your camp director was born on the 13th of Feb. and considers it a lucky number!). Hopefully all will be serene at S.C. Thirteen, although not too serene as we'll once again hope the Surf Gods smile upon our small, but vibrant camp and send us waves this summer.

Our 6-day, activity-packed program includes dawn patrols, yoga/stretch, eco-warrior snorkel, cave, cliffjump adventures, games, as well as surfing each day. We're happy to welcome guest instructor Eleni Mary this summer! Eleni, a native Floridian, has taught surfing in Costa Rica and is a practicing yogini.

Delicious, home-made meals by famous garden-to-table cook Liz are always a highlight - nutritious and delicious (who can resist her magic bars!).

Overnighters report Sunday afternoon and their 6 night/6 day journey towards surfing nirvana begins then and there.

Day campers' electricity plugs into the camp each day from 9-5pm (start times vary according to week), as well as invites to 'on the town' nights etc.

Teen week and the returning Tween/Teen week we anticipate filling quickly. We are asking to please spread the word about our Youth week (ages 7-11) as that looks to be the one with the most openings, but as we love that age group (and all of them!), we're hoping it fills. Age limits have some flexibility to allow groups/siblings to attend together, but we do value forming peer group dynamics.

Max occupancy for each week is 12-14 campers. Don't miss your spot!

ALSO: We are again looking for recommendations for a local Eleutheran kid to take one of our scholarship spots. Ideally we are looking for a Youth (aged 7-11), but any child would be considered. Your recommendation should want to learn the sport, benefit from financial aid, and be able to swim. This is a great opportunity, please don't hesitate to recommend a child.

SPONSOR A CHILD RATE: Once again we're offering this discounted rate to individuals or businesses that want to sponsor a local child to attend. Please inquire and as per above recommend a child, or we can recommend one for you.

June 24/25-June 30 -- Teen Week ages 13-18
July 1/2-July 7 -- Youth Week ages 7-11
July 8/9-13 -- Tween/Teen Week ages 11-14
