KID’S KAMPS SCHEDULE & COURSES

SUMMER 2023 COASTAL EXPLORER KAMP

WATERSPORTS & WILDLIFE The purpose of the Big Blue Collective Summer Kid’s Kamps are for the kids to get out on the water and have plenty of fun. We want them to experience the best of the islands and wildlife whilst also learning or enhancing their water sports skills. Naturally, the kids will be encouraged to learn about and respect the environment they are exploring. There will be a focus on coral reefs with additional ‘light’ educational themes, noted below. This will vary each week and cater to the appropriate age groups.  The last day of each week will end with a MEGA adventure to one of the outer islands such as West Caicos, French Cay or Middle Caicos.
