Will we get to go to the boardwalk and beach?

The Ocean City High School Student Council is excited to host this conference and has been working hard to plan the Friday night welcoming, Saturday afternoon team-building, and Saturday night social activities. Part of their excitement is to share with you some of the attractions that have made Ocean City a popular family vacation destination since the 1880’s. As a result, their current plans for these activities do integrate the beach, boardwalk, and amusement piers – which you will get to experience with your fellow Region 2 student leaders and advisors.
