Learn a little more about our camp programs:

Saltwater Fish Camp

During fish camp, youth will learn how to rig a rod, tie knots, throw a cast net, build a tackle box, follow the regulations, dissect fish, learn about fish ecology, safe boating skills, hear from a law enforcement officer, do a morning of kayak fishing, seining up baitfish, team building, plus arts and crafts camp kind of things. Friday there may be a fishfry so invite your parents fishing for the afternoon. Campers will also receive and go home with their very own rod, reel, tackle box, tackle, and tape measure after fish camp, so they have the supplies and basic skills they need to go fishing on their own anytime!

Kayak Adventures Camp

During Kayak Adventures camp youth will learn on the water safety, signs of the weather, parts of the paddle and kayak, basic kayak strokes and maneuvers, rescues, orienteering, chart reading, and more. Throughout the week they will cover all the material a person needs to know in order to get their safe boater's card-a requirement to operate a vessel in Florida state waters. Campers will even have some creative fun one day building boats and racing them down the creek or across the pond. We promise time for kayaking every day.

Don't worry, kayaking is part of fish camp and fishing is part of kayak adventures camp, but the emphasis of material is different. It will be a blast!

To ensure campers will stay happy, hydrated and healthy, they will receive a camp shirt and water bottle.
