Upon arrival at the camp check in with our staff. We recommend that you arrive at least 15 minutes prior to your camper’s time slot.
We’ll confirm your surfers time and inform you of any last minute changes. The Balmy Beach is a private club and there is no restaurant service. Aloha Toronto will provide a lunch from noon- 1PM on the patio of the Balmy Beach Club. There are many dining options along the bustling Queen Street East neighbour as well.
When it’s time for your camper to surf, our volunteers will assist them in putting on coast guard approved life vests (bring your own if you prefer). This is a good time to let our volunteers know about any special interests has such as trains, spelling, Star Wars, etc. This helps our instructors build a rapport with .
Next, our volunteers will walk your camper into the water and over to their instructor. Positioning on the surfboard is very important. This will often take a minute or two.
(We ask that parents/guardians remain on the beach. The camper responds better to our volunteers without a parent present. Don’t worry, most of our volunteers have a decade or more experience.)
And finally…your camper is surfing!!
