101 Surf Sports is proud to roll out the 2017 Surf Camp for Kids aged 6-17. Looking to get the kids surfing? Then let us give you the 101.

San Francisco And Marin County Surf Camp

First up is the kids Surf Camps for Marin County and the San Francisco Bay Area. We have partnered with Stinson Beach Surf Camps to make surf camp a fun and convenient solution for a summer adventure the Kids will never forget.  The Camps start on June 16th and run through September 31st and are held at Stinson Beach each weekday. You can choose to do a single day or spend the entire week getting their surfing game on. The camp provides both boys and girls of all levels with the opportunity to get surfing in a fun and safe environment. Here are some of the logistics.

• Ages 7-17 (boys and girls)

• All gear is provided by Stinson Beach Surf Camps

Stinson Beach Surf Camp Transportation

• Transportation from Mill Valley to Stinson is available. We arrange for the Stinson Beach Surf Camp Instructor to meet you and the kids for a drop off on this side of Mt. Tamalpais. The easiest location for meeting is the Tamalpais High School Bus Stop. From there the instructor and the kids will go as a group on Mill Valley's Stagecoach (pictured at right).  The trip leaves daily 8:30am on Route 61 West Bound from Mill Valley to Stinson Beach. Return Trips come on the 3:00pm daily Route 61 East bound. The kids will return to Mill Valley by 3:30-3:45 at the Safeway across the street from Tamalpais High School.

• All instructors are CPR certified lifeguards and surfers

The mission of the Surf Camp is to help create knowledgeable surfers and to keep surfing safe, and fun for everyone!. The camp is centered on fun filled days at the beach while learning how to surf. In the mornings we stretch, warm-up, and the surf for about two hours. After surfing, we eat lunch, and relax under the tent or in some shade. Then we play some beach games for about thirty minutes. Once everyone is ready, we all go surf, and swim until it's time to go home.

What To Bring : Towel, Lunch/Food, Water, Hat and Sunscreen, Warm Clothes to wear on the beach while resting. While we provide wetsuits and booties if you have the own bring them.  Bring a jacket or heavy sweatshirt for wearing over the top of the wetsuit during lunch. This is would be a jacket you do not mind getting wet. Bring a bag for storing wet items.
