Our Camp

For one long weekend each summer, the Sierra Nevada mountains become a hub of surf music creativity. Take in performances by top surf bands, schedule one-on-one lessons with surf greats like John Blair, Paul Johnson and Dusty Watson & spend quality time with family, meet new friends and help to promote and preserve California’s indigenous music – surf!

Classes & Activities

Get tips on songwriting, recording and performing from instructors! Get real-life experience playing music with fellow campers in Surf Band 101! Get outside with guided hikes, campfire jams, musician-geared exercises/stretches and our annual baseball game!


Our instructors have included Paul Johnson (The Belairs), John Blair (Jon & The Nightriders), Dave Wronski (Slacktone, Jon & The Nightriders), Dusty Watson (Dick Dale, Agent Orange, Slacktone, Jon & The Nightriders) and many more!

What Our Campers Are Saying

Surf Camp is the most awesome thing on the planet!

I feel as though I got a year’s worth of lessons in one weekend! The willingness of the instructors to share their knowledge was unbelievable.

Very friendly, inclusive, fun environment.
