As you likely know from experience, it can be difficult to keep your children entertained during the winter season. If you’re children are constantly complaining of boredom during the winter, you should consider sending them to a kids camp that offers fun winter activities. Here are some of the many winter activities your kids will enjoy at a kids camp in southern Florida.


Contrary to popular belief, it is perfectly possible to go canoeing in the cold winter season. In fact, many people have reported that their best canoeing experiences occurred on a cold, snowy day. If your children enjoy canoeing and don’t mind the cold, they will have a blast going winter canoeing at our kids camp. Your children will learn how to paddle a canoe with a group of young children. Not only will your child build strength, self-esteem, and confidence, they will also learn essential boat safety rules that will keep them safe on future winter canoe trips, as well as boating trips in general.


fishingYet another activity that is perfectly possible during the winter is fishing. If your child doesn’t already know how to fish, we will help him or her develop these skills. This activity is perfect for children who have a natural interest in the good ole’ outdoors, especially when it comes to the marine environment. While your child learns how to fish, he or she will also learn skills necessary to move safely in a small boat. The day will begin with your child looking for live bait to use while fishing. Your child will then use the bait to fish. By the time your child leaves the kids camp, he or she will know how to skillfully use a fishing pole with bait.


Hiking happens to be a particularly fun activity for young children during the winter. Your children will come to love the outdoors with a passion by the end of the hiking trip at our kids camp. Your child will sleep in a tent with a sleeping bag and eat food cooked from a campfire. He or she will have a blast singing campfire songs and interacting with the other children. Not only will your child have plenty of fun, but he or she will learn many essential survival skills, such as how to pitch a tent correctly. The self-esteem of your children will likely soar as he or she successfully learns these essential survival skills.


archeryIf your child is interested in learning a new sport, he or she can learn archery at our kids camp. Your child will learn archery skills related to form and shooting. While they will certainly learn how to shoot an arrow with accuracy, they will also learn maintain and tune their bow. They will also learn how to maintain their arrows and troubleshoot for common issues.

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!
