Important Information: Campers are expected to bring a healthy snack and their own lunch, full water bottle, sunblock, hat, sandals with heel straps, and dress in layers. Due to the Florida heat, campers will spend at least a portion of the day inside for cool down and breaks. NO CAMP will be held the weeks of June 3-7, July 1-5 and July 22-26 (the weeks of USRowing Youth National Championships, NBP Fireworks On The Lake and World Rowing Under 23 Championships).

Parents, please note: Once you complete online registration and payment, you'll receive a follow-up email from our program manager. The email is to obtain more specific information about your camper (T-shirt size, allergies, drop-off and pickup information, et al). If you don't receive that email within a reasonable time after registration, please email or call us at 941-358-7275 x5812.
