The opportunity to attend summer camp is awesome, but not all summer camps are created equal. Summer camp by the ocean have an edge! Kids can naturally learn so much from attending a camp in an ocean environment, and grow in ways that simply cannot be experienced in a land locked camp. Here are some of the life-long benefits of attending summer camp by the ocean.

Water Safety Skills Acquisition

Learning to swim is an important skill and can be taught in almost any pool. But ocean safety is another skill altogether. Being around the ocean, in a safe and supervised environment with highly trained counselors, helps instill a respect for the ocean. Kids become aware of currents and tides, learn about ocean safety precautions and develop confidence to become safe ocean swimmers for life.

Appreciation of Nature & Ecosystems

Has your son ever held a sea slug? Experienced night-time ocean phosphorescence? Can your daughter identify a harmless leopard shark? Has she watched pods of dolphins at play or observed lazy sea lions sleeping on the offshore rocks? What better way to develop a love for marine life, than to literally dive right in and experience it!
