Afternoon Sessions Added

The first five weeks of camp are already full and waitlisted! We wish we could add more spots to accommodate all campers, but due to COVID-19 restrictions, our morning sessions are capped at 20 campers. However, because we don’t want anyone to miss out, we’ve partnered with the City of San Clemente to add afternoon sessions for all 6 weeks of camp this summer! Afternoon sessions will run from 1PM to 4PM, and will also be limited to 20 campers each week. Sign up today to reserve your spot!

Wether you’re currently on the wait list or haven’t yet registered yet, sign up soon! We’re seeing unprecedented demand this summer and fully expect many of these weeks to sell out quickly. We also still have a few morning spots available in the final week of the summer.

Summer 2020 – We Are Open!

In collaboration with the city of San Clemente, we will be open for 6 weeks this summer! Because of the limited available weeks, as well as limited other summer programs, we expect this summer’s sessions to fill up quickly. Register Today!

We will be open starting the week of July 6th, and run weekly through the week of August 10th. Several weeks are already filling up quickly, so we recommend you get your spot early!

Due to the coronavirus pandemic, we will be taking extra precautions this summer. In accordance with our COVID-19 safety plan, approved by the city of San Clemente, we’ll be doing temperature checks for students and staff every morning and limiting group sizes to 5 kids or less. Total enrollment will be limited to 20 kids and, as always, we will ensure at least a 4:1 student to instructor ratio to ensure your child gets the personal attention they deserve.

The beach may be one of the safest places you can be! Sun exposure and vitamin D have been linked with longer life (lower all-cause morbidity) [1] [2], and there’s evidence to suggest that it’s also linked to lower severity when it comes to COVID-19 specifically [3].

Special Appearance by Tanner McDaniel + Open House Demo Day

We couldn’t be more stoked to announce that the 18-year old bodyboarding prodigy, Tanner McDaniel, will be making a special appearance at our summer camp at North Beach in San Clemente on Thursday afternoon!

To mark the occasion, we are going to open up our camp to all kids ages 6 and up from 1:30 – 3:30 p.m. so they can meet Tanner, watch him perform some incredible tricks, and see what our bodyboarding camp is all about!

If you are interested in signing your child up for our Open House Demo Day, please go to our Registration page, fill out the form and include “Demo Day” in the Promo Code field.  Participation in our camp is limited to the first 18 kids to sign up, but anyone can come down to North Beach to watch and meet Tanner.

In the meantime check our Tanner’s highlight reel here – yeeewwww!

Fun in the Sun!

In addition to learning how to bodyboard like the pros, kids at our Bodyboarding Adventures summer camp are going to LOVE all of the other activities we have planned. From beach bowling to water gun fights to building sand volcanoes, our camp is going to be jam-packed with fun stuff to do!  Our Beach Activities Director, Claire, has been working hard to find the coolest beach games on the planet.  Here’s just a sampling of what we have in store for our campers:

  • Beach Soccer
  • Obstacle Course Races
  • Sand Castle Contests
  • Sandman Contests
  • Sand Volcanoes
  • Face Painting
  • Beach Bowling
  • Water Gun Fights
  • Treasure Hunts

In addition, we’ll have a few Kid Sliders for the kids to play with so they can still enjoy the water safely in the event of a beach closure.  Check out the video – doesn’t that look like fun!?  You can purchase them directly from our partners at if you want one for yourselves!


Thank You Science Bodyboards!!!

When the “Michael Jordan of Bodyboarding”, 9-Time World Champion, Mike Stewart, thinks what you’re doing is cool, well, stoked doesn’t quite capture how awesome it feels! We are so honored that Mike’s company, Science Bodyboards, has graciously signed on to be the official board sponsor for our Summer Camp! Science arguably makes the highest quality boards in the business, which many professional bodyboarders like 17 year-old, Tanner McDaniel, ride in competitions. Even our favorite 7-year old future pro Jaxon Cruickshank rides the Science ProTech1! We’re pretty proud to give our little groms the opportunity to learn on Science boards – they’ll be pros before they know it!

Speaking of pros…check out this video of Tanner shredding on his Science Launch PP board:

Future Pro – 7 year-old Jaxon Cruickshank

We come across amazing videos of pros doing unbelievable spin moves and barrel rolls all the time, but when we saw this 7 year-old shredder, we were super stoked because it shows what’s possible for little kids in the sport of bodyboarding.  Little Aussie, Jaxon Cruickshank, is an inspiration for all of the kids in our summer camp – check him out on Instagram (@Jaxoncruicky) and follow The Boog Co. on Facebook for more awesome videos of Jaxon!
