Lisbon Teens Surf Camp - Nomad Summer Camp, Lisbon. Portugal
Surf School Teens Camp Lisbon
Nomad Surfers organizes probably the most Multi-national Surf Camp for Teenagers in Europe.
The Surf School Teens Camp Lisbon is located in Costa Caparica Beach, 100 meters from the beach and only 20 minutes from Lisbon International Airport. It is one of many vacation spots in central Portugal which is noted for its beauty and tourist possibilities.
Our Teens camp is right beside the beach with a very long sandy beach, safe and perfect beach breaks; it’s an idyllic place for the practice and learning of Surfing. Hosting teens with ages of 12-18 years old from Russia, Italy, UK, France, Switzerland, Belgium, USA, Canada, Spain and other countries every year. Full privacy in double rooms and shared rooms also available.
English and Portuguese Language Courses are also available for teens who wish to learn or improve their English during the stay. The courses are having a lot of acceptance and very good results because the children learn in a relaxed environment and our programming focuses more on different areas not covered during the school. The Surf Courses are also taught in English so that the kids get used to it and learn in a relaxed and unconscious way.
Most of the days we wake up to have a healthy breakfast, walk to the beach, morning surfing session, warm shower while the lunch is getting ready at our beachfront restaurant (nobody leaves the table hungry), beach break, one more surf session, quick shower for an afternoon snack.
Walk back to the camp, shower time, dinner and evening activities such as Apneia (safety surf course), movie night, slack line, parties, pool activities, ball games. There is also an excursion day on every 10 days camp for the city tour, Bounce, paintball, horse riding or any extra activity the group decide to do.

You don’t have to worry about getting to the Surf School Teens Camp Lisbon. We will designate a responsible 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.
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.
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.
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.
Passaport 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.
