YOUTH CAMP

YOUTH CAMP!

There are so many great ways to enjoy the outdoors here in Playa Potrero. Our Camps are for kids 5-14 and are held during the major holidays and for several weeks during the (traditional North American) summer months. If you have a bunch of kids and want to make a camp for weeks not listed on the schedule, please send us a note and we will see if we can accomodate!

WATER GROMS

(Ages 5-8)

Come swim, sail, kayak, boogie board, and much more. Have fun with new friends in this tropical playground. Small class size makes this class both safe and exciting! The Groms get extra time in the shade and game time compared to the bigger kids.

Kids should bring sunscreen, water, a swim shirt, a hat, and a small snack.

We will be providing lunch near the end of each day with both a veggie and non-veggie option.
