The City of Malibu offers three different day camps during the Santa Monica-Malibu School District spring break: the Spring Break Sports Camp, Spring Break Nature Camp and Spring Break Surf Camp. Registration for the sports and nature camps was open as of Feb. 4, and registration for the surf camp was set to open at 8 a.m. on March 2.

The Spring Break Sports Camp is offered for two weeks. Week one will take place April 6-9 and week two will take place April 13-16. The sports camp meets on the Pony field at Malibu Bluffs Park from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m.

“This camp has something for all sports enthusiasts and for those who want an introduction to a healthy and active lifestyle,” according to the city’s website. “With a new sport offered each day, participants will learn the ins and outs of fun interactive sports such as baseball, soccer, football, kickball and others they may have never experienced before.”

Momentum Academies, a recreation company, will be leading the sports camp.

The Spring Break Nature Camp will take place April 6-9 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at Malibu Bluffs Park.

“Nature Camp combines instructor-led and self-guided group explorations of Malibu Bluffs Park, allowing for children to learn about native plants and wildlife through meaningful contact with nature,” according to the city’s website. “In an increasingly technological society, Nature Camp provides engaging, hands-on experiences and lessons aimed at inspiring wonder and appreciation for nature.”

Both the nature and sports camps are for children ages five to 12.

The surf camp caters to a slightly older crowd, children ages seven to 13, and is also offered for two weeks. Like the sports camp, week one will take place April 6-9 and week two will take place April 13-16. The surf camp meets from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at Tower three at Surfrider Beach.

“Instructors will professionally teach the skills of surfing while sharing a healthy respect and awareness of the beauty and power of the ocean. Low participant to instructor ratio,” according to the city’s website. “Participants must be able to swim and tread water. Surfboards will be provided if needed, and wetsuits are highly recommended.”

Instructors from Aspects Surf Camp will lead the surfers-in-training.
