It has long been the dream of the Surf Happens Foundation to host a free surf camp for children fighting cancer. Thanks to the support of the Brittingham Family Foundation, our dream has grown from a single day of surfing into a weeklong camp. Families with cancer survivors are invited to participate in the 3rd annual Hana Hou Surf Camp June 23th through June 27h at Santa Claus Lane in Carpinteria. Hana Hou means “One More Time” in Hawaiian. In this case, it means one more wave because campers always want one more!
The healing powers of the ocean are unparalleled, and through Hana Hou we hope to facilitate a healthy and long lasting relationship with the ocean. The camp encourages a safe space to overcome fears, share fellowship, and have fun. Surfing is the primary activity, but we will also be playing team building and beach games, doing arts & crafts and other water activities. We guarantee to get every participant standing and riding waves!
All of our instructors are CPR and first aid certified, along with being trained in surfing-specific lifesaving skills. Our team of expert instructors are all about laughing, smiling and sharing the stoke!
Hana Hou Surf Camp will run June 23rd through June 27th from 9am to 3pm each day. Family fun Friday on the 27th features a barbeque, talent show, surf contest, and awards ceremony for participants. The entire family is invited to attend and we will get mom and dad riding waves too! To secure your spot please RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org, or call (805) 966-3613.
