River Center Aquatic Adventure Summer Camp

Children have a captivating experience discovering Florida ecosystems, collecting fascinating marine critters, and getting out on the water around the Loxahatchee River watershed!  With 4 counselors and just 16 campers per week, kids will be exploring the waterways of Jupiter, enjoying outdoor fun like snorkeling, fishing, and kayaking. Students will also be participating in outdoor and indoor activities at the River Center in a safe, personal environment.

Camp for the 2023 season will have important modifications and precautionary measures to ensure the health and safety of our campers, volunteers, and staff members.

River Center summer camp registration is open to the public online starting March 1 at 9am.

Per the Loxahatchee River District’s Governing Board of Directors each camper is only allowed to sign up for one week of camp. If there are any spots left available come May 1st, we can allow families to register for more than one week.

Camp registration is on a first come, first served basis. Any cancellations will be filled from the established River Center waitlist.
