Beach & Ocean Sensory Show
Your little ones will learn about beach safety through song, dance & storytelling!
Our Early Childhood Sessions have been created to provide young children, teachers and parents with education around coastal and inland waterways safety with our surf lifesavers.
In this program your children will be encouraged to participate in our show by singing and dancing along with Bobby as he is getting ready for a fun and safe day at the beach with his family. They will meet Bobby and our lifesavers, listen to music, put on some sunscreen, hear the sounds of the ocean, and explore and touch some beach items that we bring along. This program is being launched in September.
