Kids attending Miami’s best adventure camp will have the opportunity to enjoy animal encounters, learning the life of a zookeeper, arts & crafts, games and so much more.
“We developed a program that is educational, fun, engaging and interactive. Here kids will be outdoors and not on mobile devices,” said Christopher Gould, Managing Director of Jungle Island. “Nowhere else in Miami can they get this kind of experience where they will learn about the importance of animal welfare and conservation in a highly constructive environment that will inspire and bring them closer to their surrounding nature.”
Through August, 11th, every week at Jungle Island Ed-venture camp will offer exploration and themed activities, including Wild about Animals, Protecting and Conserving, Animal Adventures, and Junior Animal Keeping.

This session is available for weeks 1, 5, and 9, starting June 12, July 3 and August 8, respectively.

Swim Lessons for kids and adults at Venetian Pool
The Venetian Aquatic Club volunteers at Coral Gables Venetian Pool offer American Red Cross Swimming Lessons all summer long for kids and adults. The Venetian Aquatic Club was formed in 1959 by a group of women who were concerned with the safety of area residents. The many waterways, lakes, rockpits, pools and ocean itself, combined with our warm climate, made water safety of particular concern. The American Red Cross is the basis for their water safety teaching program. The members are all certified American Red Cross Volunteers. Call 305-460-5306. venetianaquaticclub.org
