One EPIC Vacation

Outer Banks Boil Company has been honored to be a part of so many family vacation traditions. We realize that for every family we serve, there are several others who are unable to enjoy this simple but well deserved break. At Our Epic Project we know the value of a family vacation is not only the fun had and the memories made, but it’s great for mental health.  Taking a family vacation can reduces stress, increase serotonin levels, and provide an opportunity for families to connect. Being able receive these benefits without the financial burden is where Our EPIC Project steps in. We want to be able to make the dream of experiencing an EPIC family vacation a reality for one deserving family!

THANK YOU to our Sponsors

So many local businesses have helped us make this week EPIC by showing the Demetrakis family how the Outer Banks does vacations better than anywhere else. On your next trip to OBX, please give these businesses a little love because they have certainly been spreading it.

An EPIC Vacation Family Beach Retreat

Soft wide sandy beaches, quaint shops, a colorful history, watersports, wild horses, great restaurants, and adventure await those who visit. Corolla has become one of the most desired vacation spots on the East Coast and we feel blessed to be a part of it. Together with our friends and local business community we are excited to share all our community has to offer.

Beginning with a one week rental, August 5-12 at "Footprints in the Sand" a beautiful six bedroom home located in the Corolla Light Community, we'll make sure our deserving family has a great homebase for their vacation.  Amenities abound including a game room, private pool and hot tub.  There is a path from the backyard that leads directly to the community walkway to the beach.  And for those families who don't want to leave Fido at home- the house is even dog friendly!

Once our family is chosen we will put together a great menu of activities they can choose from.  A trip to the 4x4 beach to see the wild horses, a round of mini golf, water sports, a visit to the boat museum and the historic Whalehead Club are just a few of the many available options. 


We'll also cover meals for our family while they are here including an EPIC Outer Banks Boil Company Boil!  A travel voucher will help offset expenses in getting our family to the Outer Banks.


All in all we will ensure that our chosen family will have an EPIC vacation while visiting Corolla.  From accommodations to meals and activities, we want our family to focus on taking a much needed break and enjoying all our community has to offer.
