Guppy Ocean Adventure Camp -Wilmington Full Day
Our full-day Guppy Ocean Safety Adventure Camp takes place on several pristine beaches of Wilmington North Carolina and is designed for children ages 6 to 10. During this week-long full day program, kids will learn about ocean safety and multiple components of our coastal environment.
Participants earn their Junior Ocean Safety Certification, which raises campers’ levels of awareness and instills valuable ocean safety knowledge (rip current identification, marine life education, surf and sun advisories). Your kid will leave our Guppy Camp with a basic understanding of ocean dynamics, water safety, sun protection, and basic first aid skills. This is not a surfing program and will not be an activity of these camps. The main activity of this camp is boogie boarding.
