Teaching Kids Good Character!

Welcome to Surfari Pals

The Surfari Pals program is an ocean-themed, fun new way to teach elementary-age children manners, social etiquette, life skills, and respect. The main character, Kip Surfari, takes students on a character-building learning adventure using ocean-based characters as a guide.

You'll Love Surfari Pals as much as they do

School Quote

4th Grade Student
"I regret being mean to others. I've stopped being mean to my sisters, I’ve stopped lying because it causes me trouble. I stopped these things because of Surfari Pals. I’ve started being happy."

Parent Quote

Parent of Camp Surfari Jr Volunteer
"She was so proud of herself today. She ironed for the first time and used a sharp knife. She may be learning as much as the kids. Thank you."

Teacher Quote

Public School Teacher
“Yes/no Ma’am & Yes/no Sir and Please/Thank You, were my favorite lessons. I always notice a difference in the kids after those lessons. They try to say those things more often. It makes a difference”
