****PLEASE NOTE: We are limited to space, both for surfing and the campsite. It will be a first come, first sign up. Both permission slips filled out plus money, will ensure a spot on the list. Permission slips will be due by August 17, if there are any spots left.
Scouts that are not interested in surfing, will be added, if there are any open spots left.
Families are welcomed to come up and spend the day watching the surfing at Mondo Beach.
Parents / Scouts should understand we are at the beach and being in the ocean surfing / body boarding / swimming etc. does have its’ dangers and that scouts will need to use their scout knowledge of swimming safety / rip tides / first aid and general behavior on the beach. Scouts should be good swimmers and not afraid to tumble in the water a time or two. Mondos beach is known for being the perfect beach for learning to surf and is usually pretty mild in its’ water conditions but it is the ocean and things can happen. The idea is to introduce scouts to the sport of surfing while using their scouting skills and have great weekend at the beach
Assistant Scoutmaster Sean Monahan will be the coordinator on this trip. Please direct any questions to him.
