Carolina Ocean Odyssey overnight summer camp lets kids ages 10-12 explore, study, and experience the North Carolina coast
Wilmington, N.C., January 31, 2017 – WB Surf Camp, in partnership with their marine science division, Sea Turtle Camp, is adding a new residential summer camp for the 2017 season, Carolina Ocean Odyssey. The focus of this co-ed program for kids age ten to twelve is to introduce campers to a variety of ocean activities while they gain independence and an appreciation for protecting and enjoying our earth’s oceans.
From the WB Surf Camp’s home base on Topsail Island on the North Carolina coast, campers and their marine educators spend a week exploring local habitats such as dunes, salt marshes and tidal pools, as well as jumping into a variety of aquatic sports including boogie boarding, surfing, kayaking, paddleboarding, snorkeling, and more!
Highlights of the week-long adventure include:
- Extensive daily boogie board and water sport instruction
- Lodging at an air conditioned, ocean view facility
- Enrollment limited to 16 campers
- Surf Session with a 3:1 student to instructor ratio
- Visit to the Karen Beasley Sea Turtle Hospital
- Salt marsh exploration including seining, crabbing, clamming
- Education on ocean safety practices and the importance of conservation
- Surf movies, ping pong, foosball, volleyball, smash ball, beach bocce ball
- A Hawaiian Luau and traditional camp activities
“I’m so excited about this overnight summer camp opportunity for our younger campers,” said WB Surf Camp founder Rick Civelli. “The kids are going to have a blast boogie boarding, paddleboarding, and surfing while also learning a ton about the amazing local marine habitats, and becoming the next generation of stewards geared up to protect our beautiful oceans.”
WB Surf Camp is now enrolling campers for the summer of 2017. Additional information is available at https://www.wbsurfcamp.com/
