Field Trips


Phillip and Patricia Frost Science Museum, Miami, FL
“From Gulf Stream sharks to the tiny organisms within coral, the Aquarium is a trip through the beautiful watery worlds of South Florida. The building works on three levels, beginning on the top Vista level where you travel the vibrant surface of habitats such as the Gulf Stream, Mangrove Forests and the Everglades. Descend to the lower Dive and Deep levels for stunning underwater views and interactive learning stations. Through face-to-face encounters with working scientists and dynamic live animals, experience a connection to these rich ecological systems, and the science behind them.”

This has been the first camp ever that my son didn’t complain about going in the morning, but he did tell me about the friends he made and the things he did. We love this camp!
