Description :
!!!!ALOPECIAPALOOZA 2012!!!! =|||Last summer we had the pleasure of participating in WB Surf Camp in NC. Our 13-year-old daughter and CAP Kid, Maddie was reluctant to try surfing. At the end of the day when she said, -That was the best day of my life!- we knew we had to make surfing possible for every CAP Kid!! Please join us for Alopeciapalooza 2012, which will be the perfect mix of empowerment, learning, and bonding with the added thrill of surfing and spending time with old and new friends on the beach. We will be staying at the beachfront Salt & Light Center in North Topsail Beach and, with an all-star lineup of speakers--some returning, some new--once again Alopeciapalooza will provide our CAP Kids and their families with a change of focus from growing hair to growing self-esteem.|||= {General Information} -(CAP Kids are FREE, and the cost for parents and siblings who register by June 1st will be $250 per person. -After June 1st, the cost will be $275.
