Health and Safety
The goal of our camp is to have fun while surfing, safely. We'll teach your camper about water safety and surfing etiquette. We want to have as much fun in the sun as possible! To do that, we need your help as the parent in communicating the following things to your camper. Please talk to your camper about the importance of health & safety while at the beach. Explain your expectations while at camp, e.g. they will re-apply sunscreen, and drink plenty of water.
Spray sunscreen runs out very quickly. Consider sending your camper with a cream instead.
It's important to re-apply sunscreen throughout the day. It's all fun in the sun, until someone gets sunburnt.
Even the best sunscreen will wear off. Rash guards will be provided for all campers to wear. They help keep the sun's rays off your skin.
If your camper is prone to swimmer's ear, please send them to camp with the proper ear drops.
If your camper experiences ear pain while at camp, they should tell their Camp Leader immediately.
Heat and Dehydration
Dehydration can happen when someone is overexposed to the sun and not drinking enough water.
The key is to drink water consistently through the day and not just when you feel thirsty.
Snack on fruits and veggies with a high water content like watermelon, cucumber, oranges, or strawberries.
Staying well hydrated ensures your camper can spend as much time as possible surfing in the water.
Bringing Medication to Camp
If your camper requires medications while at camp, please discuss this with our Camp Director, Wendy, prior to our first day. This includes RX Medications, Inhalers, Epipens, OTC Medications, etc.
RX Medications must be in the original bottle with the pharmacy label for dosing instructions. It must have the camper's name. If the dosing is different than indicated on packaging, it must have a doctor's prescription note and orders for administration.
Epi pens: Please check the expiration date. Make sure it's easily accessible in your camper's pack in case we need to use it.
All medication will need to be checked in with a day camp staff person. Please do not leave the medication with your camper.
*Important* Camp is not the time to experiment with new medications or put your camper on a “medication holiday.” Because of the structured schedule at camp, campers with ADD/ADHD often have a better experience if they stay on their medication while at camp.
Illness or Injury
If your Camper becomes ill while at camp, we will contact you to pick him/her up. If your camper is injured, we will take necessary steps to provide first aid. If we are unable to reach you in the event your camper needs medical care, he/she will be transported to the hospital by an Everyday California vehicle or ambulance.
It is very important that you notify our Camp Director of any changes in your work or emergency phone numbers.
Our main goal for summer camp is have fun learning how to surf in a safe environment. Our experienced instructors are eager to share their passion for surfing with your camper. Our instructors are all certified in lifeguarding, CPR, first aid, and have experience teaching the fundamentals of surfing. We can't wait to meet you!
