Buses By The Beach

May 25, 2018 @ 5:00 pm - 11:30 pm

Welcome to Buses By The Beach, a 501(c)3 Non-profit organization that holds events to raise money for The Phoenix Society for Burn Survivors.

Join us for rustic wooded camping, live music, huge raffle and silent auction of VW related items, great family fun activities like rock painting, tie dying, hula hoop making, Disc Golf course, hooping skills workshop and community breakfast Monday morning. Enjoy sandy beaches and crystal clear blue water, surfing (bring your wet suit & board and hopefully catch some tasty waves), nature trails in the woods, miles of paved bike trails, and enjoying the company of 100’s of your best friends! All VW’s and VW lovers are welcome. No need to have a bus!

We are excited to announce the Bus Benefit 2018 Music lineup!
