About

Best Day Foundation enables children and young adults with special needs to build confidence and self-esteem through adventure activities which stretch their limits, expand their true potential, reinforce their achievement, & connect them with diverse populations in their community. Our Florida debut will take place on March 25/26 (you can vonluteer for one or both) in Pompano Beach. The role of the Beach Buddy is one of the most important roles of the camp. You are the first contact for the child and the one who will be with them throughout the day. The connection you form with your child will be very important so remember to be a friend a positive attitude, encourage them and help them feel like a champion! The rewards will be enormous. Many of our participants have made such a bond with their Beach Buddies that they request them the following year!

We are officially three weeks out from our first Spring event on the weekend of March 25/26 event (flyer attached), so its time to get things rolling on the volunteer front. As you all know (especially those who have participated with us in past events) the volunteers are what makes this possible. Everyone one of us who has seen one of our kids run through the beach obstacle course or come in off the surf with that huge smile on their face, knows how amazing these events are for the kids. So lets make this this best one yet!
That being said, please see below for our NEW AND IMPROVED registration system. New year, new registration system - that makes life super easy for our volunteers. You can register, choose the date and time of the event you want to participate in, and then just sit back and let us keep you posted as event day approaches.
