If you're new to Red Beach JuniorSurf you'll hear lots about different events our Juniors participate in over the season. Here's a brief outline of some of the events your kids can look forward to.
JuniorSurf Camp, Mangawhai
Held in mid-January, this is a very popular 5-day camping trip at Mangawhai, open to Junior members and their families. It’s a fun 5 days where the kids train daily in preparation for a Northern Region carnival held at Waipu Cove or Ruakaka.

It’s getting more and more popular with over 200 kids and parents from Red Beach attending the camp.
