Florida Wildlife Camps
What’s that noise? Is it a turtle or a tortoise? Is that a frog or a toad? Can a frog really turn into a prince? Can owls really spin their heads around? Wildlife adventure camp will take you into the animal world at Historic Spanish Point with I-spy bird watching, Scat & Track Nature Walks, Wild Adventures, and more!
Survivor Adventure Camps
Be a survivor! Whether you’re lost in the city or lost in the wild, you will learn to survive it all. Learn the basics of outdoor skills. Read a map, learn basic Orienteering, make a fire, build shelter, find water, and make primitive tools from the things around you. This adventure camp will be full of outdoor games and fun for your little survivor.
Art & Science Camps
Is there an Art to Science or is there Science in Art. Let the creativity flow and the curious adventure begin. This camp will explore the many ways of sliming. Kids will learn to tie-dye the easy way with science and explore weaving just like they did it in the old days. Why is weaving done? Is it art or science? Let’s experiment and learn about the world around us.
