Why join the Surfing Birds kids camps ?
Introducing the new generation to watersports
Kids globally have less exposure to watersports and are usually caught up in a system of dull and non-inspiring activities. Our goal with these camps is to bring kids closer to nature, to watersports such as surfing, windsurfing and kitesurfing, to expand their social horizons, to make them more independent, and to inspire and influence them for the rest of their exciting life to come. Getting your kids involved with watersports has more benefits that you can imagine. First of all, the kids get acquainted with the wonderful world of the sea. They learn about the fun it has to offer, but also about its dangers and how these can be avoided or handled. This interaction with the aquatic environment triggers the kids’ ecological conscience. They become more aware of the need to protect and preserve our ecosystem.
On top of that, kids sharpen their learning skills. After all, watersports require learning theory and the techniques behind each sport. Kids will have the opportunity to socialize and engage with children of various ages, and experience what it is like to be part of a community. Additionally, it goes without saying that practicing watersports will improve their fitness and physical strength, which is important from a young age.
