The Experience

The drive from Victoria BC up and across Vancouver Island to go surfing in Tofino has stunning scenary on its own. However, Tofino, Ucluelet and the Pacific Rim itself is one of the most amazing and breath-taking places on earth!  Endless, flat, white sand beaches, crashing surf, crooked douglas fir trees, and enormous old growth in a coastal rainforest with the vibe of a small, remote BC town. The surfing here is world class, with many famous names visiting and owning property in the area. Teens get to experience this one-of-a-kind environment through a surf board - there's just no way to be closer to nature!

This isn't just any surf camp! At night, kids stay in a lodge or camp with a hot tub and showers readily accessible. Here they get to practice cooking for the rest of the group. During the day, Tofino surf camp youth will get to tour a surf board factory, learn all about the designs, shapes and materials, then get to surf with instruction from expert surfers. When it's time to stop surfing for the day, participants explore the Tofino area, hike the trails and experience the surrounding ecology. The whole time the kids are having fun while learning to work together, taking care of themselves, and appreciating the power of nature without techonology!

Surf Trip Safety and Food

Safety

Western Educational Adventures takes safety seriously. Not only do we want our participants to have an exceptional time, but just as importantly, we want them to return home safe and sound. All of Western Educational Adventures staff are certified in high level first aid and have years of experience managing risk in the outdoors. You won’t find a more qualified staff team anywhere else!

"Landon took our family on a sea kayak paddle starting out of Victoria. This was our first time sea kayaking but we felt confident in Landon keeping our trip safe and enjoyable. In little time we were safely paddling and navigating the water. It was a great day!"

-Alex Damjanovic

Food and Food Allergies

We believe that a good experience starts with good nutrition. Proper diet and eating habits are lacking in today’s society - a result of readily available fast foods, processed foods and a lack of nutritional education. We strive to provide quality, simple, wholesome meals with limited processed ingredients – in addition to the occasional smores and limited other tasty treats. This is part of why we include our participants in all meal planning, purchasing and cooking.

We are also very experienced in dealing with dietary restrictions and serious food allergies. Great care is taken to avoid serious participant food allergens whenever possible. Where this is not possible, we take great care to avoid cross contamination of ingredients.

"Landon guided an overnight trip for our family on the Juan de Fuca trail. Healthy eating is important to us. Landon helped our kids build an outdoor oven and they were soon baking an amazing dinner. It’s an incredible feeling knowing that you can look after yourself in the outdoors."

-Carole Damnjanovic
