Campers will enjoy kayaking on the Estero Bay Aquatic Preserve from the Mound House launch and swimming in the Gulf at Newton Beach Park. They will also enjoy theme-oriented organized camp activities, outside games, and nature, history and museum exploration. Each camp week has room for a minimum of six and a maximum of 15 participants. Campers will discover new plants and animals, use the state-of-the-art research lab, immerse themselves in local Calusa history and travel the Great Calusa Blueway Paddling Trail.
Featuring a curriculum written and designed by local marine biologists, campers will collect water samples, observe wildlife, and explore the habitats of fish and wildlife on kayaking adventures.
