The best surf camp for Teenagers in Portugal


Nomad Surf Camps has moved its operation in Lisbon to a newly built building on the beach so now our campers can walk 100 metres to the beach for the surf lessons. 

The teens are supervised by our staff 24 hours with medical assistance (first aids). The Surf camp entrance is closed during the night and we have a security guard at the camp.

Every package includes meals, shared accommodation (or full privacy in twin rooms also available), daily surf lessons of course, the right to enjoy all the facilities that are included in the Surf camp (swimming pool, Surf skate Ramp, game room, free wifi, etc). There are rooms of 4, 6 and 8 people and we will allocate everyone as to try to match kids of same sex and similar age in same room according to the bookings that week. All our camps are mixed although the bedrooms distribution is by gender and age (13-17 years old).

We encourage the parents to provide some pocket money for vending machine available at the accommodation, supermarket, lunch and dinner on excursion day, ice-creams, souvenirs, drinks or extra activities not included like paintball, etc. They will also need money for the first day as they will only have dinner included and last day when they only have breakfast included.



No one will be left hungry!!

At our kids surf camp in Lisbon, the strong breakfast consists of fruits, orange juice, croissants, toasts, whole grain bread, jams, honey, milk, coffee, chocolate milk, ham, cheese, muesli, and corn flakes.

Lunches are served in a restaurant in front of the beach with everything the teens deserve: starter, main course, dessert, water, and juice. After surf snack in between the second surf session and afternoon activities consist of sandwiches, fruit, and juice.

Dinners are varied and include all the necessary nutrition for teenagers this age. A starter or soup, main course, and dessert. Juices and water also included. We cater to Celiacs or Vegetarian teens as well. A fully equipped kitchen is also available.


For Parents



Nomad Surfers have dedicated many years to the practice and teaching of surfing as qualified instructors, and we organised our first kids Surf Camp in Portugal in 1998 with great enthusiasm, specialising in children. We know the responsibility that this entails, that is why at our summer camp in Lisbon the boys and girls will be controlled at all the times, in the surf lessons, extra activities by our monitors, and will be always accompanied by teachers, surfing, sports and recreation with the maximum security for them.


Our teens will live with monitors with experience in sports activities and outdoor games. They will be responsible for checking that the teens follow the rules of the surf camp and make extra activities in the evenings. To you, parents who always concerned about is the safety of their children. Your children are supervised 24 hours per day by qualified instructors with a system of internal rules which must be followed.

How are the waves in Costa da Caparica?

Costa da Caparica is known to have some of the best beach breaks in the Lisbon region. Its also the home to some of the most prestigious European surf contests. It is protected from the predominant northerly winds so its usually glassier than other Lisbon surf breaks. It is also known to have slightly smaller swell than in places like Guincho or Praia Grande so therefor its perfect for surfers as the swells in Costa da Caparica can be surfable when the west coast is maxing out.

Fibre Glass surf board for advanced surfers

For those who dont want to surf with a soft top we do offer “Torq” Fiber glass surf boards. But you will probably  be allowed to surf near the other beginner surfers, so you will need to free surf on the side.

Where exactly is our kids surf camp in Portugal?


Our Nomad Surf Camp for teenagers is in Costa da Caparica Coast, only 20 minutes from Lisbon downtown and Lisbon International Airport. With an extension of 13 km of sandy beaches surrounded by the nature reserves of Costa da Caparica Fossil Cliff and Mêdos National Woods.


Almada also has historic centers and countless places worth to visit, such as the Zagallos Manor House, in Sobreda or the Contemporary Art Centre at Casa da Cerca, in Old Almada, among many other suggestions.


The Kids Surf Camp is only 1 min walking to the beach, restaurants, bakery, and supermarkets.

Getting Here


You don’t have to worry about getting to the Lisbon Teens Surf Camp. We will designate staff for pick-ups and drop-offs at Lisbon Area. You just need to provide us the information about the schedule of arrival and departure and we will organize the transfer at Lisbon International airport, train or bus station. 

We can pick up and drop off at the airport at any time.


Your child will often be one of many children arriving at the airport or train station to be escorted to camp. Whilst our representatives will always try to arrange for onward transport to camp with the minimum of delay, it should be understood that your child may be required to wait at the airport or train station for up to two hours before he/she commences the onward journey, due to flight delays affecting other children and/or difficult traffic conditions.


Upon arrival at the destination airport or train station, your child should look for a Camps representative, who will be displaying a Camps sign. Airports and train stations can be quite crowded and hectic, you should instruct your child to wait at the airport’s or train station’s information desk should he/she not locate our representative on arrival.

By Air Plane

There is a lot of airline companies operating at Lisbon Portela Airport, providing both business class and low-cost flights to tourists around the world. About 40 airline companies, of which the most notable are Turkish Airlines, Lufthansa, Finnair, Easy Jet, Air France, Blue Air, British Airways and Brussels Airlines.


These companies ensure the connection between Lisbon (and, by extension, Portugal) and virtually all corners of the world, linking the capital to destinations like Amsterdam and Paris, Madrid and Rome, London and Moscow, the Canary Islands, Bucharest, Philadelphia, Tunis, Tel Aviv, Cairo and so on.


If you want minor escort service, make sure you organize it with the airline before you buy the ticket. You will need to provide our manager’s document and contact number.

By train

In terms of railway transport, the tourist and commercial platform of Lisbon is serviced by four main train stations: the Santa Apolonia (Estacao da Santa Apolonia), the so-called Rossio (Estacao do Rossio), Barreiro (Estacao do Barreiro) and Cais do Sodre (Estacao do Cais do Sodre).


The Santa Apolonia Train Station (Estacao da Santa Apolonia) is the largest of all, is located in the vicinity of the Alfama district. It is the main terminal for trains which ensure the connection between Lisbon and north and east Portugal, as well as between Lisbon and international destinations like Madrid and Paris.

By bus

Rede Nacional Expressos

In terms of bus connections, Lisbon is fairly well linked to virtually the entire Portugal by means of the bus lines made available by the so-called Rede Nacional de Expressos. The main bus station in Lisbon, at least as far as domestic bus trips are concerned, is Rodoviaria da Sete Rios (Sete Rios Bus Station).



For international bus connections between Lisbon and other European destinations, Eurolines seems to provide the most extensive offers.


Some might find it rewarding to get to Lisbon by car. This is, without a doubt, one of the most time-consuming manners of traveling to the capital of Portugal, first of all, due to the city’s geographical location on the west coast of the country, and secondly, because the first step of getting to Portugal is to cross Spain. The border between the two countries is pegged out by 15 checkpoints, so the alternatives are fairly reasonable, as far as their diversity is concerned. The border crossing process is also said to be, as a rule, quite smooth.

Passport and Visas

Please ensure that your child has a valid passport and appropriate visas for all the countries he/she will be visiting. No refunds will be made when a child is unable to start camp due to delays in obtaining appropriate passports or visas. All children must have either a passport or other valid identification for a copy at the camp office for the duration of the camp.
