Florida Keys Adventure
Ages 11 to 18, 10 Days
A truly magnificent course in a beautiful environment, the Florida Keys Adventure will take campers through a myriad of fun activities designed to build self-confidence, hone social skills, and foster responsibility.
The campers will begin their journey together in Fort Lauderdale, before splitting into their teams and traveling down to the Keys to enjoy various activities. Activities include kayaking around the keys and the surrounding mangroves, snorkeling at Looe Key Marine Sanctuary, deep sea fishing on our own boat, and swimming in the beautiful aquamarine waters of the Caribbean. Additionally, we’ll plan a trip together to Dry Tortugas Island, located half-way between Florida and Cuba and home to Fort Jefferson, a moat-surrounded, octagon-shaped fort dating back to the early 1800’s. While there, campers will explore the island discovering its patch reefs and shallow water shipwrecks, and will catch fish from shore and kayak in some of the best fishing waters of the country!
Each day and night, campers will work together with our trained staff to establish a quality routine including meal preparation, life skills, and personal hygiene. The course culminates in end of course festivities, where campers will celebrate their newfound skills and the experiences they had over the past 10 days. This is a truly remarkable, life-changing experience that will never be forgotten!
My Camp Experience
“Daniel has come back both this year and last with a stronger sense of self confidence and pride in his accomplishments. I think his successes at SOAR have helped him become much more successful in Middle School. He loves the camp and wants to come back next summer!”
