BB SURFS is BB Camp’s water sports focused specialty camp!

BB Surfs is designed to offer campers a new opportunity for growth & exploration within the immersive Jewish community at BB Camp. We aim to encourage mindfulness and environmentalism through surfing, helping our campers become stronger advocates of tikkun olam (repairing the world).

We are thrilled to partner with Cascadia SUP and together provide outstanding surf, standup paddleboard, and wakeboard instruction. Instruction is tailored to each camper, so campers do not need prior experience, with our goal of providing everyone with skills to facilitate growth both as surfers and as people. The program utilizes both Devil’s Lake and the Pacific Ocean as experiential classrooms for learning and self-discovery.

Our integrated curriculum is designed so that campers will participate in specialized BB Surfs programming. While also enjoying the core elements of a summer at BB Camp such as: the older unit overnight rafting trip, Shabbat and other special all camp programming.

Our primary values for 7th and 8th grade at BB Camp are Shalom/Peace and Ometz Lev/Courage. Both of these values are ingrained into everything we do within BB Surfs, both encouraging campers to grow outside of their comfort zone and finding wholeness on the water. Tikkun Olam/Repairing the World is also a major focus within the BB Surfs curriculum, with a beach clean-up project and education around water conservation and cleanliness throughout the program.
