Environmental Education Jupiter; Teaching Children Skills That Last A Lifetime


originalCamps that offer Environmental Education Jupiter are not only a great way for your kids to spend their summer, but to learn something too. Summer camp in Jupiter Florida can be especially exciting with all of the marine wildlife and inlets available for exploring. The problem most parents face is not knowing which summer camp will be most fun, most educational, and safest for their child.

As a parent, it’s important to know that your child is in a safe and educational environment when they go to camp. It can be nerve-racking if you’re unsure about the camp you’re sending them to. Know how to choose the right environmental education camp by following our simple guidelines.

When looking for a summer camp with environmental education, make sure the camp you choose has the following:

1. Outdoor Skills

A good summer camp will teach your child outdoor skills such as: spotting wildlife, caring for the environment, and keeping our waterways clean and safe for Florida’s native marine life. Environmental Education Jupiter is a skill that your child will keep with them long after summer has ended. This knowledge will give them a deeper appreciation of Florida’s vast habitats with skills that will last a lifetime.

2. Paddling Skills

Not only should your child learn all they can about marine and wildlife in Florida, but they first need the skills in order to get to those habitats. So, make sure that your Environmental Education Jupiter camp has a paddling and water instructor to teach your child. These are valuable skills that your child will be able to use long after the summer has ended.

3. Safe Environment

When it comes to your child, safety should be the #1 priority of the environmental education camp you send them to. An Environmental Education Jupiter camp whose instructors are certified in CPR, First Aid, and boating and canoeing is safe and trustworthy. Make sure the camp and their instructors have several years’ experience in paddle boarding, kayaking, CPR, and experience on the Florida waterways.
