THE ORIGINAL SURF CAMP:
Students are taught surfing theory, as well as practical techniques. Practical lessons are delivered as 2 x 2 hour sessions per day. Surf Camps’ courses are flexible in delivery and can easily be tailored to suit teacher & student needs.
We specialise in 2-5 day courses designed to complement Years 7-10 Physical Activity and Sports Studies, Years 11-12 PDHPE Syllabus. Programs run in conjunction with Surfing Australia’s Safe Surfing program and the NSW Education Department risk assessment guidelines. We build on this through giving students a hands-on opportunity to apply & develop their understanding under the direct supervision of fully qualified surf instructors:
YEARS 7-10 SYLLABUS – STAGES 4 & 5:

Module example 1: Promoting active lifestyles – opportunities & recreational settings for physical activity through surfing.

This trip can be combined with the option of camping which will provide an opportunity for students to develop technical camp technical craft skills, navigation and survival action as detailed in the course module.
