June 25, 2012

It’s that time of year again! Summer is here and many families are hitting the surf and sand to enjoy the great beaches the Outer Banks has to offer.  Along with your sunscreen, beach towels, chairs, and umbrella, it’s great to bring along knowledge about the ocean itself, beach safety, and first aid.

Hosted by a staff consisting of Corolla Ocean Rescue Lifeguards, The S.E.A.L.S. (Safety Education & Aquatic Learning) Ocean Safety Mini-Camp is a great opportunity for both parents and kids to be better educated about the beach and have some fun too!
