Wrightsville Beach, NC, May 23, 2008: Surf Camp, Inc. is excited to unveil its Guppy Ocean Safety Adventure Camp for 6-10 year olds. We know that a child’s first experience with the ocean will shape their attitude towards it for the rest of their life. This program was designed to build confidence and ocean safety awareness one step at a time. This is not your typical “day care” summer camp. Guppy Camp is a highly educational, action-packed, full-day, week-long adventure. Parents can drop their children off at either of our convenient Wrightsville Beach or Ogden office locations.
Between 8:30 am and 4:00 pm, Guppies will be boogie boarding, swimming, clamming, crabbing, fishing, seine-netting, building and flying kites, canoeing, playing the ukulele, exploring, learning, and making new friends. During the week, campers will visit the NC Aquarium at Fort Fisher, the Karen Beasley Sea Turtle Hospital, as well as visit many other fun-filled locations. Guppies will also be educated on American Red Cross Basic Aid Training, ocean safety, rip current awareness, marine life, wave dynamics, conservation, weather, importance of fitness, and much more. Kids will leave with a new found level of comfort in the water and a well-rounded knowledge of the ocean! This camp has a 4:1 student to staff ratio and is the perfect precursor to one of our many learn-to-surf programs. Guppy Camp is offered for ten weeks throughout June, July, and August.
Competition for the position of Guppy Camp Director was high. After interviewing many applicants, Surf Camp hired a Director with a PhD in Youth and Family Counseling. All staff hold current certifications in American Red Cross Life guarding, First Aid, and CPR for the professional rescuer.
