Surfing Camps in Northern California,
Bay Area

Spectrum Surf Camps were formed in 2010 with a mission to help kids and adults with unique needs by offering one-week surf therapeutic surf camps. The camp is for people with a variety of needs, including but not limited to autism spectrum disorder, down syndrome, cerebral palsy, and emotional disturbances. Participants will experience the healing effects of the ocean and mindfulness of surfing.

Areas We Serve

Our home base is in Bolinas, California, just north of San Francisco. Camp sessions take place on both Bolinas Beach and Stinson Beach, which are the perfect settings to introduce children to the sport of surfing. Spectrum Surf Camps is also a contributing program to the International Surf Therapy Organization. Please feel free to reach out to us with any questions or doubts.
