The campus hosts thirteen camp-like cabins. Each cabin has sixteen beds.

The cabins have a simple design - each bunk has it's own twin foam mattress, light, window, and an electric outlet. Please see pictures in the gallery.

The Cabins are clustered in groups/villages.

Camp Surf does not provide sheets, covers, and pillows. Those that are driving are expected to bring their own twin sheets, pillows, and covers (or a sleeping bag with a pillow). The cabins have central heating, so no need to pack heavy. There is ample parking available at Camp Surf. For those that are flying in, the local San Diego MYA will coordinate with you for bedding and airport transportation. Please contact Mark Bsaibes at 8587225609 for coordination.


Camp Surf has two large central shared restrooms with private shower stalls and toilet stalls. The accommodations are more of a community camp setting. This is not a hotel. Each registrant must bring showering sandals, all toiletries, and towels. Please see pictures in the gallery.


All meals will be provided from dinner on Friday to lunch on Sunday. For Friday night, we will offer special Lebanese vegetarian meals for Lent, catered by Amardeen Lebanese restaurant.
