Bethany Hamilton & Lauren Scruggs to host Friends of Bethany 2nd Annual Beautifully Flawed Retreat

Beautifully Flawed is a Retreat for Female Amputees ages 14-25


Friends of Bethany Hamilton is excited to announce the 2nd annual Beautifully Flawed Retreat, taking place October 10-13 in Del Mar, CA.

Friends of Bethany logoThe Retreat is a four-day, three-night camp designed for young women ages 14-25 who have experienced the loss of at least one limb. The weekend will be hosted by Friends of Bethany Hamilton (FOBH) and will include speakers Bethany Hamilton, Lauren Scruggs, Sarah Hill, Katie Ancheta and others who have inspiring life-stories.

Beautifully Flawed will focus on finding beauty even in our scars and how God is able to make broken things beautiful. The retreat will additionally focus on health and wellness, as well as practical tips for girls with limb differences.

Bethany Hamilton’s Trainer and co-author of her recent book Body and Soul, Dustin Dillberg, will join us again to work with each of the young women on postural training to help keep their spines aligned as their bodies work to compensate for the loss of their limb.

Walking On Water, an organization based in Carlsbad, is teaming up with FOBH again to host a surf lesson with Bethany Hamilton for the young women attending the retreat.

This intimate event is limited to 20 young women, as FOBH desires to have a lasting personal impact, offering one-to-one mentoring to each young woman as needed.

FOBH would like to thank our event sponsor, Nutramax Laboratories, the makers of Cosamin, for their generous donation to make this event possible. FOBH also thanks Bill and Kathy Scripps for their generous donations and support for the 2nd year in a row. This event is made possible by these two benefactors!
