KB4C adds own program with Young Adult Survivorship Camps – you’ll want to be involved with this!!

Kiteboarding 4 Cancer is in the planning phase of hosting our own Survivorship camps for young adult (ages 18-40) cancer survivors. These camps aim to foster self-confidence and strengthen survivorship through kiteboarding, standup paddling, and other outdoor adventure skills.  Submit a volunteer application here!

KB4C’s survivor camps will take campers on an experience of a lifetime that will both challenge and inspire each person involved. With a team of professional kiteboarding instructors and experienced watermen and women, we will safely embrace some of the great powers of nature — wind, swell, and water — to overcome physical or psychological limitations as they face life after cancer.

Camps will run for 6 days, and will take place in locations that can accommodate a safe learning environment while offering some variety in recreational and cultural activities. And most of all, make it FUN!

If you are interested in helping us put on these camps, we would love to hear from you. We are looking for locations and accommodations that are on or near the water, maybe a camp or cabins setup, with safe access to the beach. We are open to locations in North America at this time. In addition, we are looking for volunteers for the following positions:

  • Oncology team for medical application process
  • Medical staff volunteers
  • Lead kiteboarding instructors, Level 2 +
  • Level 1 + certified kiteboarding instructors
  • SUP instructors
  • Camp volunteer EMTs

  • Cooks and assistant cooks
  • Logistics coordinators (drivers, shufflers, gear managers)

Please submit a volunteer application here!

We are also seeking monetary and service donations. For more information and to get involved, please email tonia@kb4c.org.
