The sixth annual Indo Jax Surf Camp, held in Wrightsvillle Beach, NC, is a free camp which goals are to give children with disabilities the idea that “If you can surf, you can do anything.”
The camp is a donation only camp and different camps are held depending on the disability.
The camps are available for most of the major disabilities for kids such as diabetes, vision impairment, and autism among others.
After watching the camp take place, I think it is truly a great cause.
The surf instructors are all cool and really fun to talk too. They bring out the best in their pupils and encourage them to be the best they can be.
For example, during the week I went I saw a strong friendship formed between instructor Jessi Nelson and a surfer, Devin Adams.
They really hit it off and by the end of the week it was like they were sisters.
It is a really fantastic camp and deserves to be given a look at, especially if you know a disabled person who can attend the camp. It was really fun and I can’t wait to go back next year.
The camp is run by surfer Jack Viorel and his family.
