The Emerald Coast Sailing Association is a non-profit association formed in 1992 when a group of Okaloosa County sailing fathers realized a need for an organization to foster local sailing. Several of the area's top sailors encountered difficulty with campaign fundraising and local community recreational programs needed help.

The ECSA now provides financial assistance for area sailors competing at United States Sailing Association sanctioned regional events through Olympic and world championship events. ECSA also engages in a number of educational programs designed to attract new sailors, educate and train those already sailing, and promote safety for all in a "lifetime" sport. The association is guided by a ten member Board of Trustees selected for their interest, skills, and contributions to the sailing world.

 Kids Summer Camp at Heritage Park

Fort Walton Beach - Get ready for fun! “Archaeology Kids: Museum Summer Camp” is on its way to the Heritage Park and Cultural Center this summer. The camp will be offered June 14th through 16th and June 21st through 23rd from 8:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. Campers will experience 12,000 years of history in three funfilled days, as they learn about early Native Americans and the archaeology used to uncover their way of life as they explore a mock on-site archaeological excavation, analyze their findings and create a museum display of their own.

Attendees will also enjoy the museum’s new summer exhibit “Pirates: The Last Scourge of the Gulf” created by museum staff and the Friends of the Museums, Inc. Each day children will learn about the past, about archaeology, museums, artifacts and make a take home project. There will be camp supplies, a snack to
enjoy and art/science activities to participate in.

Day 1: Digging into the Past – Campers will experience a mock excavation and learn about Archaeology in the Indian Temple Mound Museum and Camp Walton Schoolhouse.
Day 2: Partners with the Past – Campers will learn about local Native American and area history as they analyze their artifacts. They will visit the summer exhibit.
Day 3: Bringing the Past to Life – Campers will use what they have learned to create a museum exhibit and will try their hand at experimental archaeology activities.

The cost of the camp will be $50.00 per child for all three days. Students going into the third through sixth grades are welcome. Advance registration is required. Please call Gail Lynn Meyer at 833-9595, to sign up.
The City of Fort Walton Beach Heritage Park & Cultural Center is a community outreach division of the City and is committed to providing area historical educational programming. It is home to the Indian Temple Mound Museum, the Fort Walton Temple Mound, the Camp Walton Schoolhouse Museum and the
Garnier Post Office Museum.
