There are so many fun activities to do at Calima Surf in summer 2016. Come and join us on the Canary Islands!
Calima Surf’s summer camp is number one for learning surfing and other water sports, as well as practicing English with young people from all over Europe. If you are between 13 and 17 years old and interested in surfing, this is the summer camp for you. You will meet boys and girls of different nationalities (English, German, Swiss, Russian…) as well as other Spanish children from different cities in Spain.
Surfing: There are 4 hours of surfing lessons a day and a ratio of 8 children per instructor. The lessons use special equipment for beginners, guaranteeing maximum security throughout the course. This activity includes lunch on the beach at around 13.00. Surfing lessons take place from Monday to Saturday.
Canoeing: Canoeing takes place in the capital Arrecife and is led by professional instructors. The children navigate through the Charco San Gines bridges leading to Castillo de San Gabriel. Here, there is a small beach, where the children will learn to flip their canoes in the event of capsizing, and to keep their balance while rowing a professional canoe. There will be a support zodiac with them at all times.
Yoga: The children will do yoga accompanied by music on Famara pier, a peaceful spot by the sea. Most of the children who come to the camp, despite not having any previous experience of doing yoga, end up loving it. Doing yoga also helps to improve surfing technique.
Paintballing:Paintballing takes place in a compound designed specifically for this activity. The children will be divided into groups and play various games with objectives. May the best team win!
Tourist trips: There will be a trip to tourist sites on the south of the island by bus. This will include stops at some of Lanzarote’s various tourist sites, such as Timanfaya National Park (The land of fire), the “Green Puddle”, the Hotbeds or the Salt Lands. There will also be a stop … beach where there will be a chance to swim.
Snorkelling in Puerto del Carmen: Puerto de Carmen is one of the island’s tourist sites, with a small beach called “Playa Chica”. This is where the snorkelling will take place. This is where the diving schools choose to do their beginners courses as it boasts calm, transparent waters.
Mountain biking trips: The biking trips take the children along simple routes around Famara. The bikes are TREK mountain bikes of high quality, and fully secure helmets are provided.
Hiking trips: The hiking trips are suitable for everyone. These will take the children around Famara, the Coast and between Famara-Caleta de Caballo and the area’s volcanoes. The route is chosen based on the weather conditions. These trips will show the children just how beautiful the nature around Famara is.
Group workshops: There will be a wide variety of workshops to do, including:
Entertainment: This year, Calima has organized the “Calimasurf Olympic Games”. These involve a wide range of skill and sports games as well as casual talks about “sport” and the values that sport can teach you: participation, teamwork, competition, winning and losing gracefully, creativity without electronic devices or consoles etc. At the end, “Olympic Certificates” will be distributed to the children.
Farewell party: Here, the good times end…but the great times begin! This will take place in the surfhouse, a place where the children will have enjoyed such great times. There will be a barbecue, a certificate and photo distribution certifying you as a real surfer! There will also be different prizes awarded, from best surfer to friendliest participant. And of course there will be music and dancing too.
Extra afternoon activities: Beach volleyball, Canary Ball, hiking, mountain biking, trips out, paintballing, canoeing course, workshops and fun games.
