Event description

Description

Our Visually Impaired Surf Camp has been running for nearly 10 years now. It may be the most popular camp we do at Wrightsville Beach and has been the subject of lots of news articles and shows. In 2016, we were filmed for a series The Hero Effect, on the Oprah Winfrey Network. We’ve also had sponsorship from The Helen Keller Foundation. This camp was started by Kelly Fort. The Fort Family has been a long time supporter of Indo Jax Surf Charities and have been instrumental in making the VI Camp the most incredible surf event Indo Jax does at Wrightsville Beach. Learn more at IndoJaxSurfCharities.org

The IndoJax Surf Camp for those with visual impairments builds the social confidence of youth with blindness by having them interact with peers from all over whom they would otherwise never meet as this disability has low prevalence within the population. It also helps parents to network and share resources with each other and to reassure each other as to the abilities of their children. Finally, it opens the door to another potential sport for youth with blindness to experience success. —Proud Parent
