For Parents

We have dedicated many years to the practice and teaching of surfing as qualified instructors. Nomad Surfers created this Summer Camp in Portugal in 2000 with great enthusiasm, specialising in minors.

 

We know the responsibility that this entails, that is why the boys/girls will be controlled at all the times both in the surf lessons and activities extras we developed for their free time, and also at all times by our monitors, and will be always accompanied by teachers graduates. They will be surfing, doing sports and having fun but with the maximum security for them.

Language Courses

Algarve Horse Riding camp offers optional Spanish, French, Portuguese and English Language courses. The classes are only one hour per day for five days from Monday to Friday in the morning before the surf lessons or in the afternoon so no one will miss out on any surfing. The classes are fun and most of the time they will be taught in the open air (Beach, fields, with the animals at the nearby farms, etc).

 

Certified and native teacher is Jane Hayward

Certified by Cambridge as an English language teacher (CELTA).

 

“Originally from Brighton and with 16 years of teaching experience, I provide fun and effective made-to-measure English lessons for kids, teens and adults. Passionate about teaching and language learning, I also have over two years of experience teaching French, Spanish and Portuguese.”

 

Surf School and Coaching

The Algarve Horse riding camp has its own surf school  and is considered one of the best in Portugal and renowned for training junior surfers for many years. The Summer surf camp courses are split into three levels: Beginners, Intermediates, and Advanced. 

 

Other Activities

  • Surfboard Shaping Workshop: Once every 10 days there is a workshop where we teach the kids how to shape, sand, and glass surfboards. We do the same process as if they were real surfboards but in miniature surfboards so they can take with them as a souvenir. They have a little hole on it so they can be a key chain, a necklace or just a little sculpture.

 

  • Beach Clean-Up: In between surf sessions, we organize a beach clean up, where the teenagers will have gloves and plastic bags to collect as much garbage as possible at the beach where we practice surfing. Every day the ocean throws thousand of kilos of plastics at many beaches around the world and this scenario is only getting worse. With this activity we try to show the kids how important it is to do our part and spread good practice to more and more people. We can not give up.

 

  • Yoga sessions few days a week.
  • Barbecue party at the camp.
  • Touristic excursions.
  • Nature Run once a week.
  • Beach Volleyball Competition.
  • Other fun activities at the beach
  • OPTIONAL Activities for extra cost

No houses, bars, or anywhere to walk to, apart from the beach. We have everything we need to keep our guest entertained at the camp.
