Who says choosing the right hotel isn’t important while on vacation? With One Ocean’s Sea Turtle Kids Club, rest assured you and your family will have the trip of a lifetime in Atlantic Beach. This memorable experience provides interactive and educational events for your children to participate in throughout the week.
Your little ones will engage in hands-on activities and projects, taught by a highly qualified instructor whose passion remains rooted in children’s education and creativity. Beginning on Sea Turtle Tuesday, kids will learn about the life and habitat of the Sea Turtle. Filled with outdoor activities and interactive science experiments, your children will learn an abundance of knowledge about this mystical creature’s sea life.
Come Wednesdays, kids can participate in a hands-on cooking lesson with our very own One Ocean Chef. While learning about the importance of safety and sanitation (and donning the appropriate chef garb!), your little chef will create delectable and edible pieces of art. Thursdays are dedicated to building a coral reef model while Fridays are all about fitness galore; your kids are sure to stay happy and busy during this week-long experience.
Alas, let’s not forget about Saturdays, where your kids will have a blast building the ultimate sand castle of their dreams. Then on Sunday, they can enjoy the fruits of their labor after creating a piece of artwork to take home. This one-of-a-kind program runs until the end of August, and meals are included within the preliminary cost.
