Summer camp is the MRC education staff’s favorite time of year! Every year, the Lagoon Castaway Camp inspires and educates youth about the importance of the Indian River Lagoon. We offer a variety of hands-on activities, helping campers discover the connection between science and nature in the world around them. The MRC education staff is pleased to offer all new content for this year’s summer camp.
Camps are nearly FULL! Please check out our Earth To Sky camps, June 27-July 1 and August 1-5 for availability.
The 2022 Lagoon Castaway Camp will take place from June 6 to August 5 for explorers ages 8 to 13 years old at the Lagoon House (3275 Dixie Highway NE, Palm Bay, FL 32905). Each week of camp is limited to 20 explorers. For each day of camp please make sure your camper is prepared with close-toed shoes, sunscreen, clothes to get wet/dirty in, and plenty of food and water to energize exploration. Below are the different educational themes our campers will be exploring this summer!
