WEST PALM BEACH, FL, May 23, 2017 -- Jupiter Outdoor Center is now open for 2017 summer camp registration. JOC Adventure Camp 2017 runs from June 5th-August 11th and is open to children ages 6-14. Camper activities include kayaking, paddle boarding, snorkeling, surfing, and skim boarding at our Friday Fun Beach Day to finish off the week. The camp is the only fully accredited American Camp Association in Palm Beach County where campers learn core values about water sports, safety, and marine life.
"Jupiter Outdoor Center has been providing summer camps in Jupiter for 20 years because we are committed to teaching children outdoor skills that will last a lifetime while allowing them to explore and learn about our natural environment and marine life all while having good old summer time fun."
-Rick Clegg, CEO Chief Executive Outdoorsman
A typical week at JOC's Summer Adventure Camp includes a short paddling demonstration where campers learn the basics and safety of paddle-sports. Campers explore the Jupiter Inlet Aquatic Preserve, Jupiter Inlet Lighthouse Beach for swimming and manatee watching, the Loxahatchee River Center for the live touch tanks, the sandbar on the lower Loxahatchee River for Frisbee and other activities, and Jupiter River for paddleboard and kayak games. Tuesdays and Thursdays, the Loxahatchee River Center and its award winning staff, opens its doors to our campers for hands-on, up-close and personal instruction about our local ecosystems. The center will bring us to the best locations where the campers will get hands on fun, with some learning on the side including seine and dip netting instruction as well as a live touch tank. In addition, JOC will be partnering up with Save Our Sisters Breast Cancer Survivor Dragon boat Team, where they will be providing us with their dragon boat for use on Wednesdays of every week. Campers will pile into the SOS's, 22 person dragon boat for a fun, active, team-building experience. Fridays are beach days for surfing and skim boarding. Camp hours are from 9:00 a.m. - 2:00 p.m. or 9:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m. Registration is limited and spaces are filling up so make sure to sign up before it's too late!
"The best part about being a camp counselor is seeing the sheer joy of kids experiencing something new on the water and making memories that can last a lifetime."
