For Younger Guests

For Younger Guests

A family getaway to Ocean House is a time to strengthen ties and create memories—and a trip to our seaside resort will provide your entire clan with entertaining activities to make your vacation unforgettable.

At Ocean House, younger guests will not only enjoy our stunning seaside property, with its own private white sand beach to play on, but will also find plenty of local activities to suit their interests. During the summer our Sand Castles children’s program is tailored to younger guests, offering morning and evening programs filled with fun and exciting activities. Our Guest Relations Manager will be your personal vacation planner.

Children’s Summer Program: Sand Castles

During the summer, we offer a beach side escape for children to foster friendships, make memories and have fun while at Ocean House. Sand Castles, Ocean House’s summer program, invites children ages 5 to 10 to participate in morning and evening events led by professional counselors from the YMCA, our partners in this endeavor.

Each day is inspired by a unique theme, and a new adventure awaits. Sand Castles combines artistic and intellectual enrichment with physical and outdoor activities. Afternoon programs may feature sailing, scavenger hunts, hikes and walks, croquet, team building, crafts and culinary education, while weekend evening programs have children relaxing with dinner and a movie. Space should be reserved seven days in advance; openings on shorter notice may or may not be available. To make reservations, please call 401.584.7000 or email destinationservices@oceanhouseri.com.
