“As a dad of 5 kids, I understand how important choosing the perfect summer camp for your kid(s) can be. When considering options, you want to know that your kids are safe, surrounded by positive influences, and in an environment that will allow them to thrive, all while creating lifelong memories. I believe wholeheartedly that we have built a camp to do just that. We hope you will join us.”

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.
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.
Every day campers should…
We take regular water and sunscreen breaks.
Additional photos of your camper are available for purchase after the camp week concludes.
