Senior Week information, including Cpl. Caplan's contact information and a link to the Play it Safe Campaign and Ocean City Beach Patrol will remain on the HC DrugFree website, www.hcdrugfree.org.
Play it Safe brochures will be available at Howard County public high school guidance offices. Once the teens arrive in Ocean City, they can receive a coupon book at hotels/motels, businesses or the Ocean City Chamber of Commerce. We encourage teens to take advantage of the many FREE promotions listed on the calendar of events provided by the Play it Safe Campaign. By attending a Play it Safe event, teens can receive a wristband to ride the bus for free for the entire week. The Play it Safe Campaign estimates that it would cost a teen $1,000 to participate in a week of planned activities that are free to them during this time.
