Campers of The Week: Colin and Nathan

This week’s highlight goes to two of our younger campers, commonly referred to as “Guppies”. Colin and Nathan have been joining us for Guppy Camp for the past 3 years. On top of that, they travel every year to the North Carolina shores all the way from the coast of California just for camp. We love how our programs bring together such a great and dynamic groups of people , big and small!


1. What do you like best about Guppy Camp?

Colin:  I love that we get to go swimming in the waves and seeing the turtles at the turtle hospital and I like when they squirt water out of their nose in my face.

Nathan:  Meeting and playing with new friends and swimming in the ocean.

2. Who is your favorite surfer and why?

Nathan:  Kelly Slater because I saw a cool photo of him, but I do like them all.

3. What do you love most about the ocean?

11. If you could be any marine animal, what would you be and why?
