Our number one priority is the safety of our campers. Our program is supervised at all times, whether we are on the water with our qualified surf instructors or outside the water at our villa, on a day excursion or during airport transfers. At all times our staff are present to ensure the safety and well being of our extended family.
We have been working with youth groups around the world in all types of settings. From surf camps in Costa Rica, to skateboarding camps, to across the globe to adventure trips in Nepal. We got safety covered.
