    We are new residents of south walton and we have an 11 year old son. Does anyone have recommendations for activities or places where he can meet other children his age that are full time residents?

    IMG_7760.JPG Welcome to SoWal! Check out our camp and activities pages at EmeraldCoastKids.org | Family Resource Guide. I think joining a sports team like football, soccer or lacrosse would be a great way to meet people, or perhaps robotics or drama is more his speed. There are a ton of day and week-long summer camps on the website as well as links to sport sign-ups. Please feel free to reach out through the website for additional questions or info. Good luck!

    Keep an eye on this EVENTS & ACTIVITIES forum for updates on summer camps and events for kids. LOTS going on at Emerald Coast Theater Company, Seaside REP Theatre - magic workshops and improv acting camps, Cultural Arts Alliance art camps, Biophilia Camps and much more! We post them as they are announced. Any and all of these camps and events are outstanding for local kids.

    Also, check SoWal.com Events Calendar for children's outdoor theater, music, outdoor movies and local events - you'll find locals as well as visitors at these resort town events that are open to the public. Baytowne, Seaside, Alys Beach, Rosemary Beach, etc.

    Outdoor concerts for families all summer at Seaside, Gulf Place, Alys Beach, Baytowne, Rosemary Beach and Mattie Kelly Cultural Arts Village (Destin). SoWal.com/Music.

    Family movies and concerts at The Hub.

    Things to explore: Coastal Branch Library, Alaqua Animal Refuge, EO Wilson Biophilia Center.

    Swim lessons: Frank Brown Park (Panama City Beach) has excellent summer programs for all ages and skill levels.

    Arnett's Gulfside Farm & Stables: check out the horses and take a trail ride!

    Gulf World: see the dolphin and sea lion shows in PCB.

    Explore our state parks - all of them! Such beautiful places for families to spend time hiking, biking and even canoeing/kayaking. Free admission to Grayton Beach State Park and Topsail Hill Preserve State Park this summer (go to the beach at these incredible parks).

    Morrison Springs, Econfina Springs (out of town but fun kayaking).

    Check Coastal Branch Library for children's activities.

    Baytowne Adventure Zone! Movies at Grand Blvd. Volunteering/donating to Food For Thought...
