Are you interested in learning about marine life, going fishing, or exploring the underwater world with a mask and snorkel? If so, a summer camp awaits the young explorer. Registration is now open for the 4-H Marine camps in June and July.
Separated from the Destin beaches by the Choctawhatchee Bay, Camp Timpoochee 4-H Center, (located in Niceville, Florida) allows campers first-hand experience with Florida’s marine environment from above and below the waterline. Timpoochee’s marine lab is equipped with large aquariums supporting life from both fresh and saltwater habitats.
This week is full of learning and other fun activities such as snorkeling, swimming, recreational games, campfires, camp dance, evening activities and more. Sport-fishing sessions will help youth learn about local fish and how to catch them. Marine education activities will be lead by specialists with the University of Florida’s Sea Grant Program and State 4-H Staff, making this week an exciting Outdoor Adventure.
A daily snack from the canteen and a summer camp t-shirt are included in the camp fees, along with three nutritious meals per day prepared on site by our certified food safety staff. All cabins are air-conditioned.
