    Just for Kids

    The Perfect Vacation For the Little Ones

    New Smyrna Beach offers children hours of fun – whether you like building sandcastles, swimming, surfing, boogie boarding, fishing, exploring, picnicking, and more.

    Summer Camps

    Summer camps in the New Smyrna Beach area offer children the opportunity to make new memories, meet new people and make life-long friends. The Marine Discovery Center’s summer camp program is designed for children to experience the water through hands-on, feet-wet programs. For those who are more art-centric, the Atlantic Center for the Arts offers a summer camp for children.
    The Hub on Canal also hosts a summer art camp just for kids located right on Canal Street in downtown New Smyrna Beach. Hub kids, get your summer fun on!

    Learn to Surf!

    Surfing is a favorite pastime and the locals have the scoop on where to catch the best wave. New Smyrna is the perfect place for experts and amateurs alike. With rock ledges 4 - 5 miles offshore, the wave breaks are plentiful but swimmers are protected from dangerous undertows. Beginners like our beaches because they can learn the sport in safe waters.
    Each summer, New Smyrna Beach is flooded with surfers as the American Professional Surfing Association holds one of its premier contests. If you don’t know how to surf, don’t sweat it! Surf lessons are available for all ages. Jimmy Lane Surfing Academy offers classes on a daily and weekly basis and is open to all ages and all levels of students. Surfin' NSB also offers surfing lessons, and their instructors will even come to you!

    YMCA Summer Programs

    Summer is the ideal time to get children out and explore but for some, the end of the school year means no access to recreational and educational activities, which help them learn, grow and thrive. Studies show that children can experience learning loss and even gain weight twice as fast as during the school year. For parents and caregivers looking to keep their children's minds and bodies active, our Best. Summer. Ever. camps give youth an adventurous, active, and healthy summer.
    The "YMCA's Best. Summer. Ever." camp offers arts and crafts, field trips, games and sports, breakfast and lunch, team building, making friends, swimming, and so much more.
