Marine Discovery Center

Just one more plug for the summer camps at Marine Discovery Center located on the North Causeway in New Smyrna Beach. My daughter went to the camp for 8-11 year olds this week, The Mangrove Maniacs. They learned so much and had a great time doing it. They kayaked, took boat rides, visited bird island, had a visit from the bird lady, took a trip by water to the Ponce Inlet Museum and Lighthouse. Learned about all forms of life in the river, got a chance to fish, and all sorts of other water related things. The last day they did a little presentation and parents could see a slideshow of the weeks activities. It was a great time and my "I hate to get up in the morning" daughter jumped out of bed every day to get there. She is greatly anticipating her next week there.

They have a snorkeling camp for older kids that is held in July and some other ones for younger kids as well. Check it out.
