Applications for the 20th Teen Girls’ Summer Surf Camp are now being accepted.
Maui Surfer Girls’ teen summer camp aims to empower teenage girls through Maui’s water sports, unique camp programming and strong mentorship program.
Activities may include speed boat rides, ropes course challenges, snorkeling and waterfall hikes.  Teens from all around the country attend the camp, and the scholarship program makes it possible for teens to join the program, who might not be able to attend otherwise.
Maui girls, between the ages of 13 and 17, are invited to apply for a scholarship for the upcoming program to be held in July. Applications are due April 1.
The teen camp, which runs July 4 to July 10 and July 11 to July 17, is based at oceanfront Camp Olowalu. The camps include surf lessons each morning, with a professional, all-female surf coaching team, a service learning project, and an evening ‘counsel’ session, an MSG tradition. Each week-long camp includes all meals and activities, and costs $2,475 plus tax and registration. Attending both camps costs $4,700.
Hawai’i residents receive a 10 percent discount.
Applications for financial assistance are available here.
Maui Surfer Girls also ‘adopted’ a section of the Honoapiilani Highway (33) from Mile Marker 10-12, which stretches from Papalaula Beach Park to the entrance to Ukumehame Beach Park.  The surf school will be hosting frequent clean-ups throughout the year.  The next clean-up will be Saturday, March 14 from 8-10am.  Check their social media pages for meeting location and more information.
