Camp itineraries have been designed to keep campers outdoors as much as possible, and to capture the “adventure” that is so important to our summer camps each year. Camps will take place at the Manatee Center and take advantage of the parks and open spaces that are within walking distance, eliminating the need to place campers in close quarters on a bus, and increasing the time available to spend together outdoors. Each day, campers will engage in a variety of fun games and activities designed to help them learn more about our natural world. Each camp will also include an opportunity to explore the diversity of the Indian River Lagoon with a seining adventure near the Manatee Center.
In order to protect the health and safety of campers, staff, volunteers and everyone’s families at home, counselors and campers will receive temperature checks upon arriving for camp each day. Each camper and counselor will also receive a special Manatee Center face covering in addition to their camp t-shirts this year. Face masks will be worn by staff and volunteers at all times, and will be encouraged for campers.
