Kid’s Activities

In addition to clean, comfortable, affordable Ocean City accommodations, and an outdoor swimming pool, The Barefoot Mailman Motel also provides an opportunity for kid’s activities in Ocean City, Maryland. Our sister hotel, The Castle in the Sand, welcomes the youngest guests of The Barefoot Mailman to participate in our free children’s activities program, Father’s Day through August 25, 2024 (June 16 through August 25, 2024).

Don’t forget a camera! The children’s activities program is sure to provide many memorable moments! In 2023, we said a sad farewell to our lifelong friend, Sandy Johnson, and welcomed Lady Jade as our new Children’s Activities Director.  Lady Jade received a warm welcome from all our guests and will return in 2024 to entertain the families of The Barefoot Mailman and The Castle in the Sand Hotel.  Count on an uproariously good time for kids of all ages, including parents too!

Highlights of the Kid Friendly Hotels Program are:

Pirate Day!
Guests of all ages are welcome to participate. Captain Jade and Captain D are the funniest pirates you’ll ever find. This program is a hit with all the little sea dogs! All are welcome to make a pirate hat and then dig through the many costumes before taking the “pirate oath” and joining our silly ragtag pirate crew! After the pirate oath is taken the story of the lost treasure is told and pirates set out in search of the buried treasure!

Vacation Folder Making
Start your vacation by decorating a folder to keep vacation notes and memories in.  But that isn’t all….How about making a pencil topper to go with it?!

Airbrush Body Art
Airbrush makeup will stay on in the water, yet removes easily when lathered with liquid soap, baby oil, or makeup remover.  This can be worn in the pool – just don’t rub it with a towel.

Bubbles, Bubbles, Bubbles!
Join the fun in making giant beautiful bubbles that go up, up, and away! The wind currents may carry your bubble to the beach or to the boardwalk! Wherever it goes, you’ll see people smiling!

Movie Night
Every Tuesday night at the Castle, don’t miss Family Movie Night projected onto Castle North! Starting when the sun goes down, our selection of kid-friendly movies and popcorn is a great way to end a day of fun in the sun! Family movie nights start Tuesday, June 18, 2024 and run through Tuesday, August 20, 2024.

Our fun-filled program is the perfect complement to your Ocean City accommodations, planned with your family in mind and keeping everyone engaged and having a fun time. In an environment designed specifically with families in mind, children of all ages can socialize and play together. With activities young vacationers will love, kids will enjoy their Ocean City Maryland vacation at The Barefoot Mailman just as much as the adults and kids will have a fun-filled experience they’ll never forget. On your next vacation to Ocean City, you’ll be guaranteed to hear “are we there yet?” a few more times!

A parent or caregiver must accompany their children during all sessions.
