WB Surf Camp Offers Bags for Bucks Program
Over the past decade, participants of all WB Surf Camp programs have collected thousands of pounds of trash off beaches all over the world. Last year alone our campers performed over 1,000 hours of community service during their summer. This year, we strive to surpass that mark by encouraging students to volunteer in their own communities, earning credit towards their Surf Camp program tuition. The winner collecting the most trash will receive a free spot in their week-long Wrightsville Beach Teen Overnight Camp, valued at $1,595!
How it works
Returning Campers: For every grocery-sized bag of trash you fill, you will receive a credit of $10 towards your WB Surf Camp tuition. You may collect trash from any public locations as long as it is not near a road (for safety reasons). You may collect one bag of trash per week to be counted towards your total. **
• Wrightsville Beach Overnight Camps: collect up to 10 bags (credit up to $100)
• Travel & Specialty Camps: collect up to 15 bags (credit up to $150)
• Day Camps: collect up to 5 bags (credit up to $50)
**Can not be conbined with any other discount
