Young burn survivors enjoy a day at the beach

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CBS 8) - Dozens of young burn survivors spent a fun day at La Jolla Shores enjoying some fun in the sun.

The youngsters are part of the San Diego Burn Institute's Camp Beyond the Scars, which is held at Oakbridge Camp near Ramona.

On Thursday, the campers spent the day at the beach, which benefited them in many ways.

"I think just coming out and being at the beach and being around people that they're comfortable with. And also being able to be in such a, you know, sunny area and out and around everybody that ... the kids just really enjoy getting out in the water," Catie Casciar said.

Camp Beyond the Scars was created in 1987 as a way to help build self-esteem and coping skills for young burn survivors.
