We’ll also spend time on land to participate in dry land training and plenty of wet and wild fun!

In a 4-week session, campers will become cast members, set designers, and dancers! Campers will form an ensemble as they take on the challenge of producing the original musical “Sally Sells Seashells.” This funny exploration of the classic tongue-twister introduces us to Sally, a kid con-artist who explodes onto a quiet beach town with a get-rich-quick seashell-selling-scheme, and the unsuspecting beach kids whose world is turned upside down as they all learn the importance of friendship, honesty, and having fun! Show off your creative talents and sing, dance, and act your way to stardom with a final performance for friends, family and fellow campers on Friday 7/31.

Campers will be divided by age group.
