)-- Freedom Waters Foundation and Pure Naples hosted campers from Easter Seals for sightseeing cruises on the Double Sunshine on August 5th and 6th. Easter Seals provides summer camp programs for children with autism and related disorders through their K-12 schools in Fort Myers and Naples. The mission of Freedom Waters Foundation is to enhance lives by providing boating opportunities and marine related activities for people with disabilities, life threatening illnesses, youth at risk, others with special needs, and veterans.
