Emerson came loaded with tools to teach our group of 10 kids how to built a perfect sand castle. He was patient and our kids--even the big ones loved the experience. Our castle was the envy of the beach all day. Great memories for our kids.

Thank you! Our lesson with Emerson was an awesome experience and our family really enjoyed it. Of course there was sand everywhere but Emerson was patient and polite. Loved it! Worth EVERY penny.

First time to the beach with the children so I wanted to do it correctly! Emerson came out with tools and ready to go! The children were very involved and had fun building. He was very good at getting the kids to understand what to do. Thanks!
