Our girls surf camp experience is for girls ages 12-17. Our overnight surf camp includes more than just Maui surf lessons! And we promise to not herd you into huge surf classes like some surf camps.


Once you arrive in Maui, you’ll be greeted at the airport by our friendly staff and whisked away to our oceanfront A-frame cabin facility – the ultimate setting for a surf camp with Maui’s warm ocean lapping at your doorstep. For the next week or two (or three weeks if you’re lucky to attend both sessions), you and four fellow campers, along with a CIT (counselor in training) and LSI (lead surf instructor) will pile each morning into a mini-van and head to your surf lesson a few miles from our facility. For lunch you will fuel up on our healthy grinds, enjoy an hour off to relax in a hammock or rope swing, and join our chalk talks to learn about ding repair, surf forecasting, history of surfing. Our afternoon activities are a choose your own adventure. Here’s some of what goes on at camp in the afternoon & evenings:

Past Activity Options:

  • Stand up paddle boarding instruction, the latest water sport rage!
  • Windsurfing lessons
  • Waterfall hikes
  • Zip Lines in the West Maui Mountains
  • Wakeboarding

  • Hawaiian Arts & Crafts
  • Mystery Adventures

Our Evening Programs:

And by the way – our camp food is the very best – healthy, mostly organic, and prepared by private chefs! With the summer mango’s in full harvest, our surfer girls never starve!

I want to tell you how deeply Tester’s instruction reaches her students. She teaches girls, at a turbulent developmental time in their lives when so many may turn to drugs, to find solace in their environment and own good health. This, for so many of her local students, directly benefits Maui’s waters, coastlines, and high schools. For distant students this sends the best energy from Maui on out into the world.  I know this as the mom of a 16-year-old and three-year-veteran of her summer camps who has blossomed under Tester’s guidance. - Betsy Duncombe

MSG is simply the most impressive camp experience we have found in many years of sending our kids to highly regarded camps all over the world. I can tell you that it is rare to find a group as highly organized, spirited and as impactful as Maui Surfer Girls. Etienne Perold, PHD.

Maui Surf Girls surf camp on Maui

Our Philosophies: Our focus is to teach adolescent girls (ages 12-17)  how to surf through a sequential teaching program that is designed to cater to the skills and needs of each camper. While surfing is our main camp activity, we also offer many other adventure and cultural activities to help build a competent and confident camper. Immersed in the novel Maui setting, whether our campers skillfully navigate herself on a surfboard or hiking through the West Maui Mountains, she will gain confidence in her personal strengths and abilities. And through her experiences at MSG, ideally, she will become more adept in facing the challenges of her daily life back home.

We strongly believe that with healthy role models, girls can be their best and achieve their goals. The mentorship element of our program will provide the girls with one-on-one opportunities to bond with the instructors. Our 3:1 camper to instructor ratios are the best in the industry and sets us apart from our competition.

The instructor/camper relationships are our highest priority, where both physical and emotional safety are created and upheld at a high standard. Adolescent girls are impressionable. Our instructors are conscious of this fact and are professional in their presentation through appropriate dress, behavior, attitudes, and words expressed to the girls. While our instructors are genuine in all interactions with the campers, they will model respect, honest, and again uphold a high level of physical and emotional safety both in and out of the surf.

“I have attended Maui Surfer Girls summer camps since 2007. I can safely say that the majority of my fondest memories, closest friends, and greatest personal achievements are due to the time I have spent with Maui Surfer Girls. Not only did MSG teach me how to surf, but it also instilled an incredible sense of passion, belonging, companionship, and empowerment in me. The staff are some of the most incredible women on the planet; talented, passionate, centered, and just good people. If none of the above is enough of an incentive, Maui is one of the most beautiful places on earth, the food is fantastic and healthy, and surfing is the best sport on earth! If you come to MSG, prepare to have the best couple of weeks of your life.”
