Camp Manatee

Camp Manatee is a nature-based specialty camp that teaches youth about the wonders of the environment through interactive games, activities, crafts, and field trips.  Our camps offer a unique experience for children ages 6 to 14, by giving them the opportunity to think outside the box, and the building in order to experience nature first hand.  The campers have the opportunity to learn about various ecosystems that can be found throughout South Florida through field trips and interpretive talks.  Campers will be encouraged to learn about the past history of Florida Civilizations from early Native Americans (such as the Tequesta) to present civilizations.

In order to make learning fun for our campers we go on a wide array of field trips in order to reinforce the weekly themes.  Campers will have the opportunity to visit various natural sites like Crandon Park, and Flamingo Gardens as well as some historic sites like the Deering Estate at Cutler.  During the summer we make sure to provide some traditional summer field trips like trips to the pool, so the children have time to enjoy the joys of summer.

When it comes to activities, we try to keep it safe, educational, and fun!  Our campers will have the opportunity to go on daily nature hikes with their groups, see and participate in exciting science experiments once a week, create and nurture friendships.
