Morro Bay surf camp for special needs kids is vandalized

A trailer for a Morro Bay camp serving children with special needs was vandalized and burglarized. Now the camp is wondering how it will replace equipment.

Project Surf Camp is a non-profit organization that runs a low-cost camp near Morro Rock teaching surfing and other aquatic activities. Police say the group's utility trailer was broken into last week. Gretchen Soares is one of Project Surf Camp's volunteers and the mother of a surfing son who has spina bifada. She says along with damage to the trailer, the group must replace wet suits and other equipment.

"It breaks my heart cause this is such an important community outreach that this organization does," said Soares. "And to see people take from these kids who have so little,it's really sad and heartbreaking."

Police say a nearby city-owned storage unit was broken into the same night. If you have any information on the break-ins, you're asked to call Morro Bay Police at 805-772-6225.
