Mary Hartman has run this camp for over 25 years and it is top notch. My 7 year old granddaughter had a fantastic time, stood up on her surfboard for the first time and can't wait to return next year!

My husband and I had a great time with Todd. He was excellent. We both got up and were riding waves in minutes. Nothing but good things to say about him and Mary.
