Burn survivors hit the beach

Camp Beyond the Scars is a weeklong summer camp for young burn survivors that is put on by the Burn Institute. Every year, the campers come down the mountain from Camp Cuyamaca to enjoy a day at the beach.

This year’s beach day was held June 30 at La Jolla Shores, where campers enjoyed surfing lessons, swimming, boogie boarding, beach games and a gourmet lunch provided by television cooking star chef Eddie Sells of Firehouse Chefs. Volunteers from the San Diego Fire Department, Los Angeles Fire Department and CalFire were on hand to assist the campers with surfing and activities.
