Families will enjoy a variety of activities such as sand-castle building, beach walks to the tidepools, field games, and more. The weekend will be very loosley scheduled with an "open campus," so your family can pick and choose from family camp activities, head into town and visit local attractions, or just enjoy the quiet coastline for the weekend.
