Ocean Explorers

Summer Kids Camp

Age Groups: Minnows: 7-10 yrs old | Makos: 11-14 yrs old

Ocean Explorers Kids Camps & After-School programs are a collaboration with Paddle Sports Center & Save the Mermaids. Each week-long session will focus on ocean sports and weekly marine education topics that directly correlate to our local marine environment.

Daily activities include a variation of kayaking, stand-up paddle boarding, boogie-boarding, surfing, body surfing, beach play, beach cleanups and ocean education. By learning sports that help connect to the ocean and its vastness beyond, we will give your ocean explorers a chance to build confidence in the water while giving them a unique perspective to view marine life. As Ocean Explorers we want to inspire youth to envision and create the world that they want to live in while also fostering awareness for ocean health.

The ocean plays such an integral role in sustaining all life on Earth, we want to emphasize how beautiful and vast the blue and green world is. Protecting, nurturing, understanding, playing, and inspiring Ocean Ambassadors to advocate for this resource is vital for all ages. All instructors are CPR, First-Aid Certified, and have gone through our internal Ocean Risk Management Program (OMRP).  Most hold higher medical training. Scholarships available through Save the Mermaids.
