What exactly is Surfari Pals?
Surfari Pals is a fun way to teach elementary-age children manners, social etiquette, life skills, respect, and self-confidence. We take students on a character-building, learning adventure using ocean-based characters and Kip Surfari as their guide.
We are teaching the program as an enrichment class in several local low-income elementary schools. This program is funded through grants from SWEPCO, Beaird Foundation, Everything Marketing, several other local businesses and private donors. Surfari Pals is a 501c3.
Our short-term goal is to utilize volunteers to improve and expand the program in Caddo.
Our mid-range goal is to develop the curriculum into a marketable format so we can send it out to schools everywhere.
Our long-range goal is to have a summer camp called Camp Surfari. This camp will be a fun week of character training for all children, regardless of financial status.
As Kip Cummings says, “One day Surfari Pals will be Coast-to-coast and border-to- border,” and it’s all starting right here in Shreveport, La.
