Kid’s Activities

June 18 – September 4, 2023

Don’t forget the camera! The Castle in the Sand children’s activities program is sure to provide many Kodak moments! The Castle is proud to welcome back Sandy Johnson as Lady Sunshine, Sunshine the Clown, and Captain Sunshine! Sandy has performed all over the world, including the White House and the Bahamas!

The Mermaid Show is a popular activity at this Ocean City oceanfront hotel! Lady Sunshine tickles the funny bone and amazes all with magic in the unforgettable tale of The Castle Mermaid… a magical story of “Merrilee,” the mermaid that lives in the waves right in front of The Castle in the Sand. She believes all the children at The Castle are “Royal Children,” Princes and Princesses. Merrilee hides seashells from around the world for the “Royal Children” to find.

One of the most popular free family activities is Pirate Day! Guests of all ages are welcome to participate. Captain Sunshine and Captain J are the funniest 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 message in a bottle, postcard making, pet shell making, and the most popular arts and crafts activity is “Silly Hat Making!” Families come together to design their own one of a kind hats. Many of the children use them for silly hat day at their schools. 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 20, 2023 and run through Tuesday, August 29, 2023.
