The Singer Island Outdoor Center, located in Phil Foster Park, will be hosting 2 weeks of their Summer Adventure Camp during the weeks of June 12th and June 19th. Kids ages 6 – 14 will enjoy kayaking, paddleboarding, and snorkeling while learning about the tides and marine life of our amazing waterways.
The Summer Adventure Camp began with the Jupiter Outdoor Center, which has been operating their summer camp program since 1998 and is the only American Camp Association Accredited aquatic camp in the area. The Singer Island location utilizes the same model and many of the beloved counselors from JOC’s camp will be on staff at SIOC.
The Singer Island Outdoor Center will provide staff to camper ratios that are appropriate for different age groups, goals for camp activities that are developmentally based, and first-aid, lifeguard, and CPR/AED trained staff available when campers are present.
“Not all camps operate out of an abundance of caution, so be sure to ask the right questions when enrolling your kids in a summer camp program. Ask about staff to camper ratios, staff training or experience, what an average day at camp is like, and really anything else you would ask someone taking the lives of your children into their hands. Safety and fun can go hand in hand, and should.” Commented Ryan Sullivan, Director of Operations
We asked former campers and their parents to share their experiences with us. One mom said: “My 10 year old daughter attended summer camp here and had an amazing week! She spent her days kayaking and paddle boarding around Peanut Island. Every day she came home with stories of the sea life she saw and the fun she had! The staff is incredible and I highly recommend them for camp or just daily recreation!” A camper from Arkansas who attended SIOC’s Summer Adventure Camp while visiting her grandmother here made memories she’ll never forget: “It was a great experience and so much fun. I got to see and learn about a lot of Florida sea life and water activities that I would never have been able to experience otherwise. The staff was really nice and I met a lot of friends to share the experience with.”
