A Day in the Life of Teen Costa Rica Summer Camp
WB Surf Camp’s Teen Costa Rica Summer Surf Camp is the ultimate summer travel experience for teens. With perfect waves that cater to all levels of surfing, beachfront accommodations, and incredible fresh local cuisine to keep you fueled up, this program is any teenager’s dream summer camp.
Imagine, you wake up in the morning to the sounds of tropical birds and monkeys, and out the window you see the sun peaking through the misty mountaintops. You step outside to the sights and scents of boards getting waxed and your fellow campers chatting with the cooks as breakfast consisting of the freshest fruit, eggs, and Costa Rican coffee you’ll ever find is served while your professional surf coaches fill you in on the day’s surf report. If the tide is right, you’ll gear up and paddle out right after breakfast, with our local guides putting you on the best waves to be found in the area each day. Maybe you have the morning free as you wait for the afternoon surf session, and pass the time with estuary boat tours, rainforest canopy ziplining, or horseback riding through the national park woodlands. When the day is done you return to camp as our chefs put the final touches on another world-class dinner. The locals are masters in the kitchen and whip up various healthy options like fresh-caught fish, free-range chicken, and veggie entrees all served alongside the tasty national rice and bean dish, gallo pinto.
After dinner, you and your new friends head out the front gate right onto the beach for an epic sunset over the azure Pacific Ocean. You can’t believe you are making these memories with other teenagers from all over the world! After the sun goes down it’s time to review the day’s waves with WB Surf Camp coaches, encouraging one another while watching video footage of each ride, and having some lighthearted laughs over some of the waves that didn’t quite work out. Your coaches give you some tips and tricks to make tomorrow’s session even better and help you set goals to keep improving your surfing while in Costa Rica. You might even start to drift off to sleep while everyone sits around the pool hanging out and relaxing at the end of the night, and quickly adapt to the early-to-bed, early-to-rise schedule all of the local surfers keep. Tomorrow brings another adventure-filled day, so you close your eyes drifting off as the sound of breaking waves comes from right across the road.
Each day is perfect in Costa Rica, call us now to learn how you can get your spot on the next Teen Costa Rica Summer Surf Camp. We’ll see you there!
