Environmental Camp

Gumbo Limbo Nature Center offers a half-day, week-long Environmental Camp during the summer.

At Gumbo Limbo Environmental Camp, children and teens will be immersed in the native world around them through outdoor fun and hands-on activities!  Games at the beach, dip netting in the lagoon, and cane-pole fishing are just a few of the outdoor adventures that bring our campers back year after year.  Older campers learn to canoe and teens take a boat trip to Peanut Island.

Registration for Gumbo Limbo Environmental Camp is through the City of Boca Raton’s Camp Boca.  Please visit http://www.myboca.us/pages/rec-services/online-program-registration for important information on how to register online.  For more information about Camp Boca, please visit http://www.myboca.us/rec/campbocaweb/ for more information, or call 561-393-7888.
