Children have a captivating experience discovering Florida ecosystems, collecting fascinating marine critters, and getting out on the water around Burt Reynolds Park!

Camp for the 2021 season will have important modifications and precautionary measures to ensure the health and safety of our campers, volunteers, and staff members.
