Freedom Is Not Free
August 19, 2009

Freedom Is Not Free is amazing!!!!My children had the opportunity to attend the Little Warriors Surf Camp and I could not believe how wonderful it was until we attended. My spouse is currently in the Army and we live in San Bernardino County in Southern California and was informed of this organization through our Batallion FRG Leader. After reading about the camp I was so excited to sign my 13 and 10 year old girls up but I thought for sure that we would be turned away because of our location. (It has happened in the past from other camps), that did not happen. I called and my girls were instantly signed up and ready to go to the camp, that was it. The day of the camp we were greeted and provided with everything my girls needed for that day. My husband and I left so my girls could give their full attention to the instructors rather than us and we would come back later in the day. Upon leaving at the end of the camp I had noiced that my girls had not only gained surfing skills but relationships with the instructors or the camp!!!! We were all so happy that we were going to leave with another positive story to add to our memories and right before we left they asked for the kids to stay for a brief moment and that is when they provided the kids who attended the camp SURF BOARDS!!!!!!!!My family was very overwhelmed that I had to let the people that we know about this amazing opportunity that we had been apart of. Thank you so so so much for giving families like us the opportunity to take part in your camp and to bring light to our day. Thank you!!!!!!!!!!Redlands CA....
