Surfing The Spectrum

“Surfing the Spectrum” is a short documentary about Natalie Pepper and Spectrum Surf Camps, told through interviews with her, the campers, families and volunteers who participate each year.
Students and staff from UCPNB’s Cypress School have participated in the Spectrum Surf Camps with Natalie Pepper at Stinson Beach since the summer of 2014. The camps provide students with special needs the opportunity to experience the rush of catching a wave on a surfboard, something most of whom have never thought they could do.
The results are amazing and certain to lift the spirits of all who witness it.

Our Boarding School

Students at Cypress School in Petaluma, California have recently been introduced to a variety of board sports from surfing to skateboarding, and for youngsters like this it is a behavior-changing and empowering experience as they all have special needs and have never been given opportunities to try these activities before.

With the help of dedicated staff and enlightened visitors, the kids are now not only riding, but also building both functional and art decor skateboards as well, some of which ended up in a massive group art show in San Francisco.

Witness the power that boarding can have in changing the way people with special needs carry themselves and inspire those around them.

Cypress School provides many amazing opportunities for students and staff to participate in at the school and out in the community as seen in these “Cypress Shorts” below.

There’s no doubt we are all missing the awesome experiences usually found at our many UCP of the North Bay Recreation Camps this summer. We wanted to share this great video of one of our regular bike campers and the message that came with it from her mom….

Hi everyone,
I wanted to share some good news: Elena learned to ride her bike this weekend. Thank you so much for all your hard work at every single bike camp. We honestly never knew if this would be something that she would ever be able to do independently. We are so proud of her and so grateful to all of you!
We’re looking forward to the next bike camp when we can all be together again!
