CAMP SCHOLARSHIPS

About Us

Kirk Cottrell started Island Camps in 1978 with one goal.  To take the surf hungry groms of the swell deprived Florida coast to find some real waves!  He organized surf trips to Puerto Rico, Costa Rica, South Africa, the Bahamas and more.  Creating unforgettable memories and relationships that would last a lifetime.

Decades later, Cottrell’s kids run Island Camps and are blessed to continue to share the stoke of not only surfing but skateboarding, stand up paddling and skimboarding to the South Florida area.

Our goal at Island Camps is to challenge individuals to get out of their comfort zone, face fears and have fun.  Our family of accredited and professional instructors are passionate and knowledgeable about what they teach and are excited to share their experiences.  Whether it’s sharing the rush that comes with catching your first wave or the feeling of flight when you drop in on a skate ramp for the first time.  We live for these moments.
