Summer + Learning + Outdoor Adventure + Fun!
At Coastal Adventures Summer Camp, we dive into a new and enriching adventure every day! We want children to explore the wonders of the stunning coastside and peninsula, develop respect for nature and a healthy outdoor lifestyle, while gaining confidence which will follow them into adulthood.
Owner and educator Jon Lowings grew up on the coast and knows the area intimately. Daily adventures are chosen by Jon with care, based on safety first. Jon follows tides charts, weather, traffic, and local news closely, so wherever the children are playing you know they are doing so in a safe manner. Jon and his staff are available via phone or text throughout the day.
