The Experience

Once you arrive on Maui, you’ll be greeted at the airport by our friendly staff. Twenty minutes later, you’ll arrive at our oceanfront A-frame cabin facility, Camp Olowalu, the ultimate setting for your week of adventures. Each morning, after a healthy and filling breakfast prepared by our private chef, we head a few miles south to our designated surf spot for the week.

Our professional surf coaching team will help you improve and feel more confident in the water each day. For lunch, we will fuel up on more healthy grinds, then the afternoon activities will vary depending on the season and the weather.  Past activities have included yoga, massages, hiking, snorkeling, stand up paddling, boat trips, whale watches, reading books and napping in a hammock!  Evening activities range from relaxing bonfires to dance parties!

Open to women ages 18+, beginner and intermediate surfers welcome! No experience is necessary, just an adventurous spirit!


The Adventure

The women’s surf camp is designed similar to the girls camp but with more focus on relaxation and rejuvenation. Activities will vary with the season and the weather, but possible activities include:

  • Stand up paddle boarding
  • Hiking
  • Snorkeling
  • Hawaiian Arts & Crafts
  • Service Project or Beach Cleanup
  • Hawaiian Cultural Education
  • Sailing Adventures
  • Yoga
  • Massages
  • Campfire Counsel


Camp Olowalu is open to the public, but our particular ‘cabin’ area is directly on the beach, and reserved just for our use! Camp features oceanfront A-frame cabins with three twin-beds with memory foam toppers (3 women share each cabin) and shared bathrooms (which are reserved only for our camp use).   There are 4 private toilets and two private showers, and one open-air, public outdoor shower.     We also have our own kitchen and mess hall, and lots of room to spread out or come together!



Come for the surfing, stay for the Food!   In 2023 we are thrilled to announce the return of our beloved caterer, Joy.   It’s been described as ‘5 star-dining on the beach!’   Joy and her assistants lovingly create three meals from scratch daily from fresh and locally sourced ingredients.   They keep our guests and our staff fueled up with nutritious and delicious meals, with ample snacks also available throughout the day.    The coffee is hot and ready to go every morning, and there’s a self-service fridge in the dining room with a wide variety of beverages, since it’s always 5 o’clock somewhere!   Meals, snacks and a selection of adult beverages are included in the camp tuition.
