What if my child or I miss a day of Surf Camp?

Contact us and specify the campers name, the missed date of camp, and your preferred makeup date. Also include any transportation details (i.e. location you need transport from). Make up days are not available for Season Pass holders.
What if my child does not use any or all the days of the Season Pass?
All Malibu Makos season passses are non refundable, non transferable, cannot be split between family members or friends and expire at the end of the classic camp summer season for which they were signed up for. Season Pass holders will not receive a refund or credit for any unused days. The same policy will apply should Malibu Makos deem it necessary to cancel camp to protect the health and safety of its campers and staff, or due to other unforeseen circumstances.
