H2O Kayak Adventure Camp
Remember when summers meant being outside all day
exploring nature & searching for all things wild & wonderful?
At Gulf Coast Kayak it still does!
Our camp meets daily at our waterfront location in Matlacha which borders the Matlacha Pass Aquatic Preserve on the Great Calusa Blueway Paddling Trail. We combine Water Safety, Kayaking, Kayak Fishing, Paddle Boarding, Ecology & Environmental Stewardship with Summertime Fun!
Everyday of camp is full of Exploration and Adventure!
Because we plan each week of camp with the same care that we do for all of our expeditions, no two camps are a like! We take into account tides, weather and skill level to make sure that every week we educate and promote a love for the water, nature & the environment!
Weekly activities include:
• Water Safety • Trip Planning
• Kayak Instruction • Stand-up Paddleboarding • Kayak Fishing
• Salt Marsh Ecology • Plant & Wildlife Identification
• Calusa Indian Heritage
• Leadership Skills • Team Building Exercises
• Dolphin Watching • Manatee Spotting • Bird Watching
Safety & Experience
Our counselors are CPR & First Aid Certified, ACA Kayak & SUP Instructors, & Florida Master Naturalist Program Graduates. They are experienced in environmental education, active volunteers in the community, & have a passion for the natural & human history of SW Florida!
***All of our Camp Counselors have passed the Level 2 Background Screening requirement mandated by the Florida Department of Children and Families**
We limit camp size to 12 campers per week to keep it personal, safe and fun
with 2-3 Camp Counselors on staff each week!
