Salty Kids Surf Camp

  • Galveston State Park Galveston, TX (map)

Impact is defined as a change that is a result or consequence of an action or other cause. That’s what Salty Culture has set out to do, to #impactlocal through outreach that gives people a renewed hope in a way that they can continue to tap into as they walk through their story. The Salty Culture kids camp is an outreach that allows the youth of Galveston County that wouldn’t normally be able to afford surf lessons a chance to be dropped in on a few waves by some of the best local legendary surfers from Galveston Island.

The goal of the Salty Culture Kids Camp is for these young surfers to connect with their mentors as they overcome a challenge they once thought impossible, a lesson that will transcend into their every day lives when made with a lasting impact like catching your first wave!

Join us on the beach at Galveston Island State Park on Saturday April 9th, rain or shine, from 9am to 1pm. There is no fee to participate and GISP has graciously waived the park entrance fee for surf camp kids and their families. We will provide a an amazing hot of the grill lunch courtesy Classic Auto Group  after a morning of surfing with our local legends. Free t-shirts will be provided for the first 35 kids courtesy of Outback T-shirt Company so get there early! Through age 12 are welcome and boards are provided, however, we do ask that all participants be strong swimmers.

Already know how to surf? We want you to join in the fun too! We will be running a mini groms heat for the first 15 to sign up and it’s beach entry only! We will have two 15 minute sessions and 1st through 3rd place will go home with plastic in hand!

Interested in getting involved or donating towards lunch? Contact us at!

All parents MUST sign a release form. If you are sending your child with a friend please click here and download and print the form and send it with your little grom! 

See you on the sand friends, stay salty!
