SandCamp sandcastle

Have More Fun on the Beach Forever!

brought to you by Sandcastle Island, inc and sandyfeet sandcastle services


Sand is really great stuff, and there are so many cool things you can do with it when you go to the beach. Sandcamp is a FREE, 4-times weekly activity where you can go to learn about all the ways to have more fun on the beach forever. 

(Note: this is _not a sandcastle lesson -- we would have to charge you for that! -- but you will definitely learn things in Sandcamp that will make your future sandcastles more amazing ;-)

When 5:00 PM every Mon., Tues. Wed. and Thurs., starting May 31 (skipping the week of July 4)

Where South Padre Island Public Beach Access #16 ("Neptune Circle")

Who Anyone and everyone, though children must be accompanied by an adult

How long will a Sand Camp session last? 20-60 minutes

Cost Free! (But donations gladly accepted on-site or on-line.)

What to bring? We will provide some equipment, but "campers" should come prepared with normal beach supplies: sunblock, drinking water, plastic buckets and shovels etc.

More: A typical sandcastle lesson covers lots of territory in an hour. With SandCamp, we will attempt to break these skills down into individual components. Subjects will vary, according to the whims of the the instructors, but all of them will be fun, educational and FREE!

Some possible topics for SandCamp sessions ---

  • Let’s make a sandy lounge chair
  • Wall building
  • Lettering
  • Making and using simple bucket forms
  • Carving Windows/Doors
  • How to make an awesome sea turtle
  • Fun with Willyspheres

How can we offer these fun sessions to island residents and visitors for FREE? It's all because of our generous sponsors! Would you like to sponsor SandCamp in 2024?
