Safety All children MUST wear a Coast Guard Approved Life Vest at all times. Children will NOT be permitted in the water without one. You can purchase one at Walmart or Target. There will also be four lifeguards on duty.
Registration The camp begins at 10:00am. Registration opens around 8:30am. Even though you have registered online, you will need to check in at the registration desk and sign a camp waiver. Volunteers can register on the day.
Parking We advise that you get to Cupsogue as early as you can as the parking lot for the beach fills up very quickly. You are responsible to pay for your own parking and there is NO parking allowed on Dune Road, outside of the parking lot. We usually gather at the further end of the parking lot by the CANCOS truck. Registration tables are through the cut out in the dune on the further end of the parking lot by the campers.
Lunch We will be providing lunch, however, if anyone you are attending with has any allergies, we suggest you pack your own lunch for the day. Please pack plenty of water to stay hydrated throughout the day.
Weather As you know, we have no control over the weather but have been very lucky the past nine years! If for any reason the camp needs to be canceled due to weather or the threat of bad weather, we will post this on our Facebook page www.facebook.com/kbmsurfcamp and will send out an email as well.
Thank you and we look forward to seeing you on August 15th!!

It is a one-day free camp for children with Autism and their families where children surf one-on-one with a qualified instructor and reap the benefits of aquatic therapy. The camp takes place at Cupsogue Beach in Westhampton, NY.
