Kid’s Activities

June 16 – August 25, 2024

Don’t forget the camera! The Castle in the Sand children’s activities program is sure to provide many Kodak moments!

It all started long ago with Lady Sunshine who tickled the funny bone of all who encountered her.  For many years, Lady Sunshine took care of all the queen’s requests when it came to leading day-to-day activities for the families here at The Castle.  After many years of spreading smiles and laughter, Lady Sunshine was appointed to become queen herself.  In this transition, Lady Jade took on the honored role of becoming Queen Sunshine’s lady-in-waiting, completing daily tasks as requested.  Lady Jade can be found in the tent area leading the entertainment for the families.

One of the most popular free family activities is Pirate Day! Guests of all ages are welcome to participate. Captain Jade and Captain D are the most likeable pirates you’ll ever find. This program is a hit with all the little sea dogs! All are welcome to make a pirate hat and then dig through the many costumes before taking the “pirate oath” and joining our silly ragtag pirate crew! After the pirate oath is taken the story of the lost treasure is told and pirates set out in search of the buried treasure!

There are also arts and crafts including postcard making, pet shell making, and the most popular – message in a bottle.  After selecting delightful shells for their bottles, families can create their own message to add inside.  These bottles can be mailed directly in the U.S. Mail as is after paying the postage.  In addition to these activities, there is fabulous face and body painting – still an all-time favorite.  Even the parents get in on the act!

Our fun-filled program is the perfect compliment to your Ocean City oceanfront accommodations, planned with your family in mind and keeping everyone engaged and having a fun time. In an environment designed specifically with families in mind, children of all ages can socialize and play together. With activities young vacationers will love, kids will enjoy their Castle experience just as much as the adults, and kids will have a fun-filled vacation they’ll never forget. On your next vacation to Ocean City, you’ll be guaranteed to hear “are we there yet?” a few more times!

A parent or caregiver must accompany their children during all sessions.

Every Tuesday night at the Castle don’t miss Family Movie Night projected onto Castle North! Starting when the sun goes down our selection of kid friendly movies and popcorn as a great way to end a day of fun in the sun! Family movie nights start Tuesday, June 18, 2024 and run through Tuesday, August 20, 2024.
