A few weeks back I posted about an awesome soccer camp by the Red Devils Soccer Club here in Utah. I like this blog format but the hyperlinks don’t show up too well so I’ll bold them whenever I add one.
Anyway, I read a post by the Outer Banks earlier in the year about surfing camps for autistic kids and in their most recent post, they inform us they are looking for volunteers but also have a great video with clips from their past camps (check out the post and video here ~ via Outer Banks Surfing for Autism Volunteer Spots Open). I can’t post video to my blog but the screen shot below is of the video mentioned above.
If you follow this blog, you’ll know that I love the ocean and have posted different things about the ocean from a Pro Surfer with Aspergers (Clay Marzo from Maui), to a video that has a feature on an autistic boy and his love to the ocean (Come Hell or High Water).
I want to give a special “thank you” to those who dream up and make these camps and activities for our kids actually happen. The soccer camp was great for our family and I am grateful to those who did so much for the camp and those kids who participated. Likewise, thanks to those who do this surfing activity!
We will be hitting the beach soon as well! One of our uncles back home took my daughter surfing last year and I’m tempted to see if the boys will do ok on a board. If anything, we’ll try bodyboarding and take it from there. I bet that we’d get a better response than last year. 🙂
