Every donated dollar is helping fund the annual Surf Camp for Kids with Special Needs held at Moonlight Beach in Encinitas, CA. This nationally recognized surf camp is completely free to over 200 families each summer from June to September.
This surf camp serves children all across the spectrum from ages 4 to 17. Each child receives 2 hours of one-on-one surf lessons with a professional surf instructor. The parents and siblings have the option of learning to ride the waves with their children on the back of the surfboard giving these families a new fun activity they can all enjoy together. At the end of each lesson, the children are awarded with a Surfing Diploma, Surfing Medal, Surfing Madonna Water Safety coloring book, a "Save the Ocean" bumper sticker, sponsor gifts and take home treats. Complimentary professional photos are provided to the families 1 week following the surf camp.
The Surfing Madonna Oceans Project is dedicated to bringing the community together to “Save the Ocean” and protect our coastline. Through youth education programs, ocean conservation project grants, marine mammal rescue/recovery initiatives and helping children with special needs experience the healing power of the ocean, we are helping to expand this community of ocean advocates.
