A vacation should mean fun for the entire family. For kids, this usually means staying active and engaged in a variety of activities. For parents, this means taking time to put your feet up and unwind. Ocean City summer camps offer a solution to this typical travel dilemma.
If you find it hard to get your child to hang up their cleats in the off season, Ocean City sports camps are sure to please your aspiring athlete. Ocean City offers all types of sports camps from traditional camps such as baseball, basketball, dodgeball, soccer, flag football, wrestling, lacrosse and tennis, to extreme sports camps like skateboarding and boogie boarding.
Sports camps are available throughout the summer and accommodate players of all ability levels. All sports camps are lead by trained coaches and staff members who offer instruction in basic skills, conditioning and strategy, while focusing on fun. Camps take place at Ocean City’s state-of-the art parks, sports complexes and pristine beach.
If your child is more of an explorer, Ocean City nature camps are a perfect fit. Wildlife camps offer hands-on learning opportunities to discover Ocean City’s coastal environment and native creatures such as turtles, crabs and fish. Activities include kayaking, water testing and data collection. Camp attendees become wildlife experts while learning how to keep our coastal bays clean and safe.
Does your child dream about becoming a professional beach lifeguard? Through Ocean City’s Junior Beach Patrol Academy, children and teens learn about basic beach patrol duties, water currents, rescue and safety techniques, and first aid. At the end of the camp, academy students participate in a variety of fun competitions designed to test skills acquired during the program.
For dancers, Ocean City offers Showtime Dance Camp focusing on ballet, tap, jazz and hip-hop techniques. Dance camp is open to children of all ages and performance levels. Classes are taught by the New Castle Dance Academy’s finest instructors. For cheerleaders, Ocean City’s popular cheerleading camp focuses on gymnastics, cheers, chants and stunts.
While kids are busy enjoying one of our unique camps, parents can take time to create their own ideal vacation. Just another reason why Ocean City is fun for the entire family.
