Yes it is that time of the year. This will be our 17th year running kids camps and I personally look forward to what will be our best year ever. We will be offering two camps this year. Fishing/kayak fishing camp as well as scuba diving camp. Both camps will be limited to a maximum of six students this way they learn more and have far more fun than any other camp available.

Fishing/Kayak Camp will combine most anyway you can fish in Southwest Florida. Your child will learn to become independent enabling themselves the ability to learn a much more positive way to spend their leisure time. We will teach both offshore and backwater techniques while fishing from a boat, from land and from a kayak. Your child should know the basic fishing and paddling techniques before signing up for this class but all students are welcome. Please contact us for more information and to get better acquainted with your child via email or call 239-592-1200.

Here is a sample of what they will do each day:

Monday: Review fishing skills such as equipment choices, knots, casting, types of bait and cats nets, safety, regulations and fish identification, and fishing habitat.

Tuesday: Your child will be fishing from a boat both offshore in the Gulf and backwater. We will teach proper and safe casting techniques, tidal and lunar influences, boaters safety, lure selection and presentation and live bait uses.

Wednesday: First we will cover basic kayak safety, paddling techniques, then how to cast from a kayak, anchoring vs. drifting, lure and live bait selection and most importantly how to find fish!

Thursday: Boat fishing all day. We will continue to practice and improving the efficiency of their skills.

Friday: We will start the day with kayak fishing and finish with an awesome beach party.

Camp will run from 8:30am to 3:00 pm. Cost $500/week.

Scuba Diving Camp is for anyone 10 years of age and older. Your child will learn the required skills to become a Junior Open Water Diver if under 16 years of age and an Open Water Diver if over the age of sixteen. It is required that your child is a good swimmer. They will also need a laptop or tablet.

Here is a sample of what they will do each day:

Monday – Wednesday: Meet at the YMCA Bonita Springs and complete the knowledge requirements and confined water skills.

Thursday: Meet at the dive shop and take final test of the knowledge requirements and begin open water dives.

Friday: Meet at the Cocohatchee River Park Marina for the final open water dives from our  dive boat. Upon return your child will need to return to the dive shop to complete paperwork and be issued their temporary dive card with successful completion of the course.

Camp will run from 8:30am to 1:30pm.  Cost $675.00 some equipment will be required. When signing up for this camp make sure to schedule an appointment at the dive shop to complete dive paperwork and gear up.
