Lately we’ve been enjoying a lot of the Tweets and information presented on the Going Green Tampa website, so we decided to check out what sorts of up and coming events they are hosting.
We found out that summer camp is on the agenda! Specifically, Going Green Tampa has highlighted eco-education summer camps throughout the Tampa metro area. They’re a great option if you’re looking for something for your kids to do.
Best of all,they’ve found camps for all ages, from pre-K to age 17. And there’s more than one camp to choose from this year.
If you’re in Hillsborough County your options include the Lowry Park Zoo K-8 week-long camps with 100 different programs to choose from. K-8 Florida Aquarium Camps target ages pre-K through age 5 and include fishing, kayaking, snorkeling and marine science activities for the kids.
You can also choose from one of the 4 types of Hillsborough County Parks day camps. Information about these camps in Brandon and throughout the rest of the county can be found here.
In Pinellas County you could send your K-10th kids to the “Summer with Winter” camp, a program which focuses on marine science and local celebrity Winter the Dolphin. You could also look into camps at Brooker Creek and Weldon Island Preserves. These camps tackle subjects like snakes, wildlife ecology and archaeology.
Pier Aquarium is also hosting camps, as is the Tampa Bay Watch Estuary. SPCA is hosting camps for kids who want to be veterinarians, pet photographers, K-9 drug dog handlers, and more.
You can find out about even more camps here. Register early! Summer camp always fills up fast, and you won’t want your kids to miss out. (After all, you can’t keep them entertained with backyard gutter races forever).
