The result is that their campers cultivate a sense of confidence in and enthusiasm for their respective sport and athletics in general . All played with a genuine love of the game !
SURF CAMP
Nothing more fun than learning to surf ! And with so many local camps to choose from , two words of advice . First , every camper has to learn the basics of getting into the water , judging a wave , catching it and standing up . You need at least three days to do all that so be sure to sign-up for a week ’ s instruction . Second , make sure your camp is fully certified , licensed and insured . Here are two of the best in both phases .
Celebrating its 18th season Montauk ’ s AIR AND SPEED SURF CAMP 631-668-0356 was the first camp on the East End to teach little grommets the basics of catching a wave . Held weekly at Ditch Plains boys and girls eight and up learn proper respect for the ocean , basic surfing skills and water safety . Weekly sessions run July through August .
