What is it

Beach Buddies is a Coastal School club

for children aged 5 and under. Little sponges

buddy up with a parent (or grandparent etc)

to learn and play outdoors on the beach with a 

qualified infant/reception primary school


Beach Buddies learn together, explore, be

creative, discover and connect with the coast

and blue planet. Members, and their families,

also get the opportunity to go on field trips

that are arranged seasonally throughout the

year and take part in any of the family events

organised each month.

Age 5 and under
