Summer Camp is fun and at VKOC we make sure of it. Our camp is geared towards the outdoor and designed to develop a new love for nature. Participants gain skills in SUP (stand up paddle boarding), kayaking, fishing, mountain biking, swimming and fitness and more.
Participants will enjoy instruction from trained and certified coaches in each discipline. Develop skills needed to compete in sports and still have a great time. Self assurance, confidence are the unavoidable benefits of our program. Level of fitness and prior experience are incorporated into each participant's program. And we have a great time!

Camp will take place rain or shine. Florida weather changes quickly so rain in Kendall does not mean rain on Virginia Key. Our camp events revolve primarily around outside activities. Please dress your child appropriately for the weather. Please make sure your camper is wearing sunscreen or can apply it independently; our counselors are not permitted to apply sunscreen on your child. Rain gear may be needed at times.
On bicycling days campers should wear fitted pants or cycling gear. Loose fitting pants can get caught in gears and are not allowed. Sneakers or biking shoes are needed. Open toe shoes will not be allowed on the mountain bike trails. All participants must wear helmets (which are provided).

Your child should always bring a towel and dry change of clothes. Safety equipment is required and must be worn (this is provided).
If your child has special needs (dietary, allergy, behavioral, physical, etc.) then please notify us in advance by calling (786) 224-4777. We want your child to have the best camp experience possible and we can only do this if we know the unique needs of your child!
What if my child has behavioral problems?
We will do our best to work with your child. However, if your child presents a threat to other campers or staff, or if they are disruptive we will call you to pick them up.
