Environmental Camp 2019


Children looking in a large net on a beach.

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

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 session of fun and learning with Gumbo Limbo!

Campers will get one Camp Boca t-shirt.  Campers should bring a lunch and water daily.
