    We enjoyed great family times at the beach when our son was small and kids under 12 were free. We gave him 18 months notice that the summer that he needed a beach badge, he would need to purchase it. $35 was a lot for him but he had plenty of time to save and when he got it, you can bet he took great care if it and never lost it!
