The last two weeks have been a merge of absolute bliss, sprinkled with a bit of much-needed rigidity to get us back into our evening and morning flow 🙂
J and B spent their first two weeks, here in Grand Cayman at Jean-Michael Cousteau’s Ambassadors of the Environment camp where they were emerged in an ocean wonderland and education via hands on experience.
The girls did water experiments, snorkel odysseys, Kayaked, built a raft out of recycled materials and found tree frogs at moonlight! I can’t say enough great things about this program. The instructors are out of this world knowledgable about everything nature related from how to survive on coconut water to how to hold an upside Jellyfish without getting stung.
and the kids do it all… they kayak, hold starfish, snorkel all of the top spots on Island and meanwhile learn how to care for our ocean.
One of the many camps they offer is called “Castaway Adventure”. During this program, the campers pretended to be stranded on an island. On this “stranded Island” they learn how to access the nutrients in coconuts, build a raft and make a hut!! During another program “Mangrove Kayak Adventure” The girls went into the Mangrove Forest and kayaked as well as held starfish and jellies 🙂
We were actually lucky enough to have the camp extend it’s program out the last two weeks during low season just for J and B!!! Last night’s “Frogtastic Fun” was their last camp for this trip.
This amazing camp normally runs from mid November to late August and is located in it’s own little cottage on the nature-full property of the Ritz-Carlton. You can email firstname.lastname@example.org to ask questions or reserve a spot for your little ones… or big ones 🙂
