Wrightsville Beach, NC (PressExposure) March 05, 2012 -- WB Surf Camp is currently holding registration for 2010 teen travel camps with destinations including Hawaii, Costa Rica, the Bahamas, Outer Banks of NC, California, and Barbados. The summer camp sessions feature gorgeous beach locations worldwide with a focus on learning to surf, learning about local cultures, and understanding marine ecology. All surf camps include community service hours working with local community non-profit organizations. In addition, teens can expect to gain or improve their surfing skills, understand ocean safety, learn about a new culture, and gain empowerment through confidence in a safe and trusted setting.
Teen summer camps from WB Surf Camp provide professional surfing instruction with a student to instructor ratio of 3:1. They may also include snorkeling, swimming, hiking, kayaking, local city and town tours, sailing, and community service depending on the camp attended. These summer camps provide teens the opportunity for adventure, independence, education, and confidence-building all within a safe and supportive atmosphere.
WB Surf Camp was founded in 1995 by surfer and environmentalist Rick Civelli. Civelli has a background in environmental studies, marine science, and coastal management in addition to a lifetime of surfing. Surf Camp is a culmination of his life's work, bringing together his love of surfing with his concern for coastal conservation. While learning to surf and improving surfing skills is a main focus of the teen summer camps, all campers are introduced to marine science education in an interactive, relevant, and hands-on approach. They learn the importance of getting involved in the local community, donating community service hours, and will see firsthand how giving back can make a difference in the world.
"Our teen travel surf camps are an empowering and one-of-a-kind experience that incorporate but also transcend the sport of surfing", says Civelli. "We've spent years building relationships with the local communities at all of our summer camp locations and we're proud to provide our campers with a personal and direct experience of life in these coastal towns. They get to see how marine life and ecology directly impact the lives of people in these communities, and learn how important it is to respect, protect, and give back to our environment. Plus, it's a ton of fun!"
Teen summer camps are currently enrolling for Hawaii, Bahamas, Barbados, Costa Rica, Outer Banks, and other locations worldwide. More information is available at http://www.WBSurfCamp.com/camps/camp_teen.asp.
