Looking for something fun for your family to do this summer? Join Third Coast Surf Shop for kids’ beach day camps, available all summer long in New Buffalo or St. Joseph!

We lead kids in all kinds of fun, safe beach activities, including:

• Surfing (our specialty!)

• Stand-up paddleboarding

• Skimboarding

• Sandboarding

• Beach games

• Swimming

Open to ages 7 - 12 (exceptions can be made). 

We provide snacks, water, and life jackets (required for paddleboarding), plus all the beach equipment - surfboards, skimboards, stand-up paddleboards, bodyboards, sandboards, and toys (balls, buckets, and shovels).

Kids should bring a small backpack with what they normally would have when spending time at the beach: sunscreen, towel, sunglasses, water bottle, a change of clothes (including a warm sweatshirt or jacket), and a hat. A rashguard (or sun shirt, especially long-sleeve) is also great to have!


COVID-19 Update

Please note that we have implemented a number of procedures to protect the health and safety of our campers, including smaller group sizes, consistent cleaning and disinfecting of equipment, regular hand-washing and sanitizing, and increased staff training. As always, our camps take place outdoors at the beach - allowing children to maintain recommended social distance and enjoy some much-needed exercise, sunshine, and fresh air! 


Camps run Monday through Friday from 9 am to 12 pm Eastern time at New Buffalo Beach (New Buffalo) or Jean Klock Beach (St. Joseph).

“My 8-year-old daughter attended a couple weeks of surf camp last summer and loved it. I told her she could go to any weeks it's offered this summer, and she jumped up and did her happy dance for half an hour!”
