** As the COVID-19 has grown to pandemic level—impacting our daily lives at work and home—we want to share what we are doing to support the safety and well-being of the customers we serve.  WRV Surf Camp is closely monitoring the COVID-19 public health emergency and we’re following all recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), and local officials. As of now all camps and lessons (other than session #1) are still on.  If you register for a session and restrictions due to COVID-19 don't allow that session to run, we will either issue a full refund or move your camper to another session later in the summer (providing restrictions are lifted).  Updates will be posted here as things evolve.  

We hope everyone is staying safe and getting some waves.  See you in the water!
