Kiteboarding 4 Cancer & SUP 4 Cancer announces camps for young adult cancer survivors — ages 18-40. Donor funds from our 2010 fundraiser will fuel these camps, designed to empower young adults to face new challenges, overcome fears and obstacles, and embrace life after cancer so they can get to living!! Camps will focus on beginner instruction for kiteboarding, standup paddling, and surfing depending on the camp.

If you are a cancer survivor and looking for the adventure and thrill of a lifetime, these camps are for you. And if you know of a survivor 18-40, forward this on to them! It is important to know that surfing, standup paddling, and kiteboarding are water-intense action sports with frequent impact on the water. Safety is our top priority. A sense of adventure but good common sense is required.

Food, accommodations, transportation, and camp instruction is all included in the camp. You only need to cover the airfare to get to camp. All cancer survivors looking to attend must fill out an app here. All applicants must also have their doctor complete and submit this medical form prior to acceptance into the camp. The John Wayne Cancer Foundation and the many athletes and donors have made these camps possible.

Our first round of camps is set on the beautiful island of Maui, Hawaii in April:
