Yes! Every single one of our camp programs offers the opportunity for children to learn something new. We operate numerous programs throughout the summer meant to provide a fun and educational experience. For instance, our Science Of The Sea Camp is geared to kids between 5 and 13-years-old, and offers the opportunity to learn firsthand all about the ocean and the creatures that call it home.
Another example is our full-immersion Spanish Camp, which helps expose campers to another language.
