Building on the Aotearoa Surf holiday programs, which produce confident, happy surfing kids, we have created an all-inclusive kids’ camp that’ll get your kids riding waves and give them the experience of a lifetime (and let you have a week’s getaway in Mangawhai if you choose to be involved).
Our Ultimate Kids’ Surf camp is the perfect action / adventure holiday for kids aged 8 – 16 (Grouped by ages). Each day they will get to enjoy daily surf lessons as well as a whole host of other exciting activities, including kayaking, paddle boarding, volleyball, yoga, a waterslide and confidence course. They will also have all the fun of camp style accommodation, campfires and BBQs. All equipment provided by Aotearoa Surf.
