Donning neon green “B.I.” shirts, approximately 70 guests from the Burn Institute’s “Camp Beyond the Scars,” stormed the beach at La

Jolla Shores for some surfing and playing on Aug. 1. The campers, ages 5-17, were all burn survivors participating in the Burn Institute’s summer program at Oakbridge Camp in Ramona, July 29-Aug. 4. The kids hailed from five California counties and three other states.

“Camp Beyond the Scars allows burn-injured children to be kids again and not worry about looking different from everyone else,” said Ronald Hendrix, Burn Institute executive director. “Camp is a place where these kids can come and just have fun.”
