The recipient of a juris doctor degree from the Thomas Jefferson School of Law in San Diego, California, Terry Chucas leverages 30 years of experience as an attorney to represent parents and children in Dependency Court appeals. In addition to his pursuits in the legal sector, Terry Chucas is a supporter of the YMCA of San Diego.
A healthy living and youth development organization, the YMCA of San Diego operates several youth programs and camps, one of which is Camp Surf. Based on 45 acres of land near the Pacific Ocean, the one-of-a-kind camp offers more than just surfing opportunities and instruction. It also has a 30-foot climbing tower, archery field, Ga-Ga court, and low ropes course. Camp attendees can also design mini surfboard necklaces, trucker hats, and masks in arts and craft courses.
The campground has 13 cabins, each with 16 beds, as well as two 12-bed platform tents and four 12-bed “cabnets.” There’s also a solar-powered village that houses a gazebo, private campfire area, and 72 beds in “cabnets” and platform tents. The beach is also a suitable camping area that can accommodate as many as 300 guests.
There are four villages split into different age groups: Mariners (Grade 3-6), Watermen (Grade 7-8), Beachcombers (Grade 9-11), S.O.U.L Surfers (Grade 10-11). Moreover, students entering Grade 12 can apply to work as camp assistants.
