Everday Life at Crystal Cove Beach Adventure


This Summer, Corky Carroll's Beach Adventure is returning to Crystal Cove! This is a fantastic outdoor program that teaches youngsters about marine conservation, ocean safety, and preparation for the Junior Lifeguards. Our instructors will help kids build their confidence and comfort level in and around the ocean through a combination of fun educational beach and water activities.

With direct supervision and guidance, kids will get prepared for the Junior Lifeguard program with short swims past the waves, calm breathing techniques, and safely maneuvering through shore break waves. Stand-up paddleboarding, boogie boarding, and double boogie boarding offers little ones additional time in the water. With the right conditions, surf lessons are also provided for kids that want to learn. Beach activities include visiting the tidepools, learning about sea creatures, fun beach games, and even occasional field trips to the Nature Center! Crystal Cove Beach Adventure is a great opportunity for the younger, less experienced kids to learn about marine biology, water safety, and most importantly, having fun at the beach!
