3 Surf Camps this summer in Curry County!
We have some great ideas for this summers camps including partnering with Coast Guard, Port Orford Ocean Resource Team, Watershed Councils, more life guard challenges, a volunteer camp out on the Saturday nights and short field trips after surfing. We will be giving priority to kids who have not surfed in one of our camps previously. Please let us know if you would like to help in any or all of the camps and please share this volunteer opportunity with your surfing friends.
June 9th & 10th Port Orford- Hubbard Creek
July 7th & 8th Gold Beach- South Jetty Rogue River mouth
We could not do these awesome camps without your involvement. To volunteer please contact Michelle Carillo at: Michelle.Carrillo@oregonstate.edu 541 247-6672 or Dave Lacey at: firstname.lastname@example.org 541 373-0487
