Malibu Makos Kids’ Surf Camp and Ocean Safety Camp

Malibu Makos Kids’ Surf Camp is geared towards young surfers of all abilities. Campers may start at the age of 5 and continue until age 17. We divide our campers into three age groups to ensure everyone has maximum fun and proper attention.

Makos is a high-energy camp that combines the fun and excitement of surf camp with the safety, ocean education, and fitness components found in a junior lifeguard program. Our goals for your child are not only to teach them how to surf but for them to become proficient in all aspects of ocean safety.

All our students gain in-depth “impact zone” knowledge. Learning about rip currents, lateral currents, wave judgment, and inshore holes can truly save lives. Our mission is to help our students understand ocean safety and how it’s best practiced whenever they are in the water.

We have the best staff period! Our core staff members are ocean lifeguards, pro surfers, credentialed teachers, and avid watermen and women whose passion and respect for the ocean is unrivaled!

Camper to instructor ratio is approximately 6:1 (4:1 for Kids 5-8 years old). Your kids will be treated as our own while in our care!

FUN

Surfing is always front and center, but Malibu Makos includes kids’ favorite water sports such as body boarding, swimming, and kayaking, along with out-of-water activities that kids love including beach flags, surf ball,  and more. Lots of water time is a major goal each day! Students are never forced to participate in any activity until they are comfortable and are always encouraged to go at their own pace with a positive attitude from Makos staff.

SAFETY

Safety is our primary concern. Makos is one of the safest kids’ ocean camps in Southern California. Our experienced staff includes ocean lifeguards, pro surfers, and credentialed teachers. Instructors have completed a rigorous training program that includes rescue techniques, ocean safety education, first aid, CPR certification, and problem solving and people skills.

FOOD

Your healthy lunch option (+$10) is delivered fresh daily at noon from Vintage Market. Favorites include cheese pizza, burgers, chicken tenders, and chicken caesar salad. Lunches are ordered at check-in each morning. All lunches include a drink, side, and snack. Kids can bring their lunch some days and enjoy a high quality meal from Vintage as a special treat. Every Friday is Free Pizza Friday where pizza and beverages  are provided at no charge!!!

TRANSPORT

We offer transportaion from nine locations throughout the Conejo Valley, San Fernando Valley, and L.A.’s Westside for only $25/day roundtrip. Take advantage of our luxury transportation every camp day, specific days of the week, or whenever a scheduling conflict arises.

"...kind words..."

“If your child loves the ocean, there is no better option for summer camp than Malibu Makos! Inexpensive, convenient transportation, flexible schedule, friendly and helpful staff – and, most importantly, tons of fun!”

Grouped By Age, Maximum Fun!

MINI MAKOS

Ages 5-8

With more instructors per camper (1:4) and its own camp area, younger campers surf, learn, and play in a more structured environment than our other age groups.

Mini Makos learn about ocean safety and marine ecology. We’re proud of our highly trained personnel with educational backgrounds specific to the age group and committed to providing the most complete ocean experience for young campers.

MEGA

Ages 9-11

Our Mega group focuses primarily on surf instruction with a heavy emphasis on physical fitness and ocean safety education. Games and organized activities both in and out of the water are available at all times.

MAKOS

Ages 12-17

Makos campers surf and work on ocean skills in their own area, giving them space to surf and train without interruption from younger students.

Makos are challenged physically and mentally so they can surf the world’s best surf destinations with confidence, good judgment and solid wave knowledge and selection. Games and organized activities in and out of the water are available at all times.
