There aren’t a lot of organized activities for kids with special challenges. They might not enjoy playing on a little league team or joining a soccer club but they sure do have fun riding waves in the ocean.

The sense of the freedom the kids get, not just from surfing, but jumping the waves, floating on the board, playing in the sand, and through other beach fun is amazing and contagious. Just ask our volunteers!

Browse through some of our photos. You’ll see a lot smiles – on the kids, Moms, Dads and especially on the faces of our terrific volunteers.

Waves of Impact holds free surf camps in California, Texas, and New Jersey.

Our surf camps are free. They are available on a first come, first served basis. We try and accommodate as many families as we possibly can.

Please have patience with us. More locations and dates are on the horizon.

If you have a child with special challenges we’d love to have you and your family at one of our surf camps. Camps for kids with special challenges happen throughout the country May - October.

Please check our Dates and Events page for our current schedule.
