Gumbo Limbo Nature Center is pleased to offer two different summer camps with week-long sessions that vary each week by age group and hours. Please note that the registration for each of these camps is handled differently. Please read the information below and follow the links to learn how to register for each.
At 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 water sports are just a few of the outdoor adventures that bring our campers back year after year. Older campers learn to canoe and kayak and teens take a snorkeling field trip to Peanut Island. Don’t let your child or teen miss out on an amazing and educational summer camp experience they’ll never forget! Sign up early to save your space for a session of fun and learning with Gumbo Limbo! Hours for Environmental Camp are 8:30 am – 2:00 pm (Teen Camp ends at 3:00 pm). Extended Camp is available until 6:00 pm for Environmental campers. Learn more.

It is very important you read the registration information ahead of time, especially how to obtain a user name and password in order to register online.

Through games, crafts, and educational activities, our instructors will teach the young conservationist about the importance of caring for and protecting sea turtles and other marine life. Campers will experience close encounters with our resident sea turtles and visit a local nesting beach.
Gumbo Limbo handles the registration for Sea Turtle Camp. Friends of Gumbo Limbo Membership is required (Family Membership or higher) for this camp. Not a Member? Not a problem! You can join and register your child for camp at the same time. Learn more about Sea Turtle Camp.
