CauseCamp Empowers Kids to be More Eco-Friendly
Registration Now Open for Spring Break

After a successful first season of Summer camps in 2023, Blue Missions, the non-profit in charge, was encouraged by parents and students alike to offer a similar eco-friendly action camp for Spring Break 2024. Camps in South Florida are a dime a dozen, but CauseCamp happens to be the only one that combines water-related adventures, ecological activities, carnival day, and community service hours.

If there is a 6th, 7th, or 8th grader in your life who enjoys the outdoors and active learning, then CauseCamp is for them. This eco activity and service camp will put students on action-packed, eye-opening field trips, offer interactive lessons, connect them with inspiring speakers, and take them snorkeling to a Coral Reef Restoration project, to name a few.

At CauseCamp, students can expect to kayak during a Mangrove cleanup and take part in an Everglades slog, which will allow them to explore the off-trail areas of the park and learn about its ecosystem. They’ll even have a floating classroom on Biscayne Bay to help students understand the worth of water and the urgent need to protect it. “Exposing our youth to sustainability projects empowers them to be knowledgeable, responsible, and active citizens of our community. We want to inspire our youth to find their drop and take action for a water-secure future” said Leslie Ramos, Chief Experience Officer at Blue Missions Group.

Offering four days of field trips and one day of carnival fun, CauseCamp promises to have a good mix of activities that students can enjoy while immersing themselves in nature, exploring new places, and making new friends.
