How fast does camp fill up?

We urge you to register sooner rather than later to secure your camper’s spot once registration is open.

What will my camper be doing while at Pigeon Key Camp?

Pigeon Key Summer Camp focuses on marine science education with a fun, hands-on approach. Our staff all have backgrounds in biology and love to share their knowledge.

Campers will get into the ocean everyday, so every child, no matter swimming experience, gets comfortable and can explore. We swim/ snorkel around the island and Pigeon Key dock, allowing the kids to be immersed in the enviroment they are learning about. Campers will also go out to Sombrero Reef Lighthouse where they get to experience a coral reef and the ecosystem surrounding it.  

Your camper will learn all about various marine science topics including shark biology, reef fish, marine habitats, squid biology, invertebrate biodiversity, and so much more. Each program has a hands on activity and your camper will come home having tidepooled for starfish, fed sharks, dissected squids, and participated in biology- focused games.

And of course, they will be having fun! We will play games throughout the day, including a Fun Field Game Friday. Kids get the opportunity to explore, spend hours in the water and on our dock, and make friends from all over the country.
