Things To Know

Childcare Tax Credit

The childcare tax credit is worth up to 35% of the qualifying costs for care, depending on your income. The limit is $3,000 of your total cost for the care of one qualifying person. If you pay for the care of two or more qualifying persons, you can claim up to $6,000 of your costs. 

Budget-Friendly

Our goal is that every parent/guardian is able to afford this camp. That is why after it is all said and done our Full-Day Camp cost is just over $11 per hour per child and our Half-Day camp cost is less than $13 per hour per child.  Additionally, we extended a discount to those enrolling more than one child. We don’t know of any other camp in our industry providing this value at such a reasonable rate!

In the chance that our weather turns bad during camp hours, we take shelter at the Hilton DoubleTree in the breezeway under their main check-in lobby. On the off chance we have an early-season hurricane/tropical storm that will negatively impact us, we will cancel camp. You will receive a text message and email the night before to notify you of the canceled camp day(s). A make-up day(s) will be credited for your camper to use at a future date. We keep a close eye on the weather to ensure your child’s safety both in and out of the water.

Daily Camp Preparation

Every day campers should…

 

  • Bring an insulated lunchbox of food OR $10 for lunch at the pier.
    • Alternatively, meal plans are available for just $50 during the signup process. This covers the camper’s lunch all week.
  • Eat a solid breakfast before camp each day.
  • Wear a bathing suit to camp each day.
  • Be on time.  Attendance is called shortly after 9 am drop-off.
  • Bring your Jack’s Camp rashguard EVERY day (provided on day 1).
  • Bring a beach bag DAILY with:
    • Refillable water bottle with camper’s name
    • Towel
    • Sunscreen


We take regular water and sunscreen breaks.

Additional photos of your camper are available for purchase after the camp week concludes.
