Insights into & Preparing for Surfcamp
Camp is from 9-3pm, Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday.
Wednesday is a day for rest and rejuvenation.
We are located at Moonstone Beach in Westhaven/Trinidad, CA and
set up at the south end of the Moonstone Beach parking lot.
Note re Summer 2020: all staff, participants and parents of Moonstone Beach
Surfcamp required to wear masks in parking lot and on the beach
***We provide all the hard equipment and the kids are to arrive at 9 in the morning
with their wetsuits half way on & warm shirt/sweatshirt on their upper body. Their
beach bag, tub or 5 gal bucket (to put wet wetsuit in at end of the day) should include
lunch, water bottle, hat, sunscreen, towel and change of clothes for the end of the
day. 2020 Summer, kids will also need to bring own face mask and hand sanitizer
(building healthy habits:)
Kids will be waiting with the instructors on the beach until checked out by parent or
guardian at 3 pm***
Wednesday is day off from camp and well-needed day of rest and rejuvenation for
all. Their homework during the day off is to create a piece of surf or ocean art to
bring and share on Thursday and/or watch a surf movie. Some fave titles include:
Endless Summer 2
Step Into Liquid
Follow the Sun
Gidget and Moondoggy
Friday is our lunch luau for the kids and we encourage them to wear floral beach
attire, crazy sun hats and if able, contribute a homemade sweet or savory item to
share (approx 10 small servings). Bring normal lunch on Friday and then the kids
can enjoy shared items too. NOTE: SUMMER 2020-WE WILL NOT BE HOSTING or
SHARING FOOD (see below for remainder of health & safety protocols)
**for lunches and at luau, we encourage to do our best to create low-to-no single-use
(Afternoons from 200-300pm on Thursday and Friday are great times for parents to
come to the waters edge to take photos or don a wetsuit and join the kids in the surf)
Here is a list of Summer 2020 Humboldt County Health Department, Health and
Safety protocols (1st edition, might be revised as HCHD requires) for child care
related business’ that we ALL parents/kids/staff need to read, agree and practice:
1) All staff get a clear Covid test result. Also recommended for all participants.
Redwood Acres is offering free Covid testing:
Redwood Acres Fairgrounds is located at 3750 Harris St. in Eureka. Please park in
the lot across the street from the fairgrounds and enter through the main entrance.

2) Parents to take their kid(s) temperature each morning before camp, making sure
they do not arrive with any fever or flu-like symptoms

the beach at all times. Staff, participants and parents to maintain 6ft physical

All parents/kids/staff agree to the above, as we all understand following the above is
vital to the success of surf camp and health/safety of all its participants and staff. All
parents understand the inherent risks of this current time, release Moonstone Beach
Surfcamp completely and assume ALL responsibility for sending their children to
summer camp with other children and staff.
