YOUR ADVENTURE AWAITS
THE FIRST PART OF ANY ADVENTURE SUMMER CAMP IS ALL ABOUT LEARNING THE ROPES
Throughout Camp Coral you should expect each day to be unique, holding opportunities to experience new activities and learn about the world around us, about others and about yourself. As you and your fellow crew shift roles and responsibilities, you’ll quickly realize that Camp Coral may be a lot different than being at home. SCUBA lessons, meal prep and clean-up, practicing sustainable fishing methods and exploring the Florida Keys will fill the majority of the time we spend together.
Your confidence grows as you complete your training and before you realize it you and your team are ready to take charge of your Coral Restoration Dive in the Florida Keys. No matter your previous experience you and your team will take the helm of your Restoration Dives. As you experience Camp Coral activities, you’ll alternate roles each day from Navigator to Chef, and roles that support the success of others.
The program is designed to present challenges, and with our staff as facilitators, overcoming them holds a very real possibility of having a profound impact on who you are, what you believe in and what you consider important in life. Life is the journey, define your own destiny.
