SURF & JR. LIFEGUARD CAMP Hermosa Beach

BeachSports Surf & Ocean Safety Camp provides a safe, fun and educational environment for participants to learn the skills necessary to safely and confidently enjoy the ocean. Through beginner surf instruction and ocean fitness activities such as swimming, body surfing, paddling and more, participants will learn how to assess ocean conditions, identify and navigate dangerous situations, build physical strength and develop their ocean skills. Our small class size and low instructor to camper ratio of 1:4 ensures a safe environment with hyper-focused, individualized instruction for each camper.

Camp Safety

  • Small Camp Size: Groups are limited to 12 campers with 3 coaches
  • All Coaches: CPR & First-Aid Certified and Background Checked
  • Location: Camp is setup next to a staffed LA County Lifeguard tower. Coaches and Lifeguards communicate daily about ocean conditions and coaches always defer to lifeguards on safety matters.
  • Rashguards: All campers receive one brightly colored SPF rashguard per summer so they are easily identified by coaches and lifeguards.
  • Sunscreen: Sunscreen reapplication breaks are scheduled multiple times throughout the day. Shade tents are provided on the beach to escape sun exposure.
