Q: What sets Vegan Surf Camp apart from other companies?
A: The Vegan Surf Camp is organized by a french non profit organization “Association l’amour de la terre”. Our aim is to create an exchange about veganism, the environment and animal rights in order to build up a fun global Vegan Network. Here at Vegan Surf Camp, we all share the same passion, a healthy lifestyle combined with surfing and Yoga and are happy to share this passion with you. You will only be eating the best local and organic products and will have a unique holiday experience surrounded by our multi-national team. You will spend your holiday in a fun, friendly environment and make new friends from all around the world. All non vegan are happily welcome.
ARRIVAL – DEPARTURE
Q: When is the arrival time at the camp?
A: Best arrival time is between 2pm and 6pm on Saturdays as we have a weekly schedule which runs from Sat to Sat and you don’t want to miss anything. If you will arrive earlier, you are welcome to leave your bags at the camp and explore the camp, the beach and the town.
Q: What time do I have to check out ?
A: Check out time is by 10h00 at the reception.
Q: What if I arrive later than saturday?
We have a nice program for you during the week so you would miss some parts but if you can’t arrive on Saturday we will make sure that you get the most of your stay! You can start the surf lessons on Monday and still do a complete week of surfing! Nevertheless if you arrive one day later or leave one day earlier in the weekly price stays the same, there will be no discount for a short stay.
