Here Comes a Grand Summer!
by Jody Steele
Summer is just around the corner and our “Unique Summer Camps” at Ocean Reef Club are open for registration on Monday, March 21. Our nationally recognized and award winning Recreation Team is ready to greet the children and grandchildren of Ocean Reef Club Members to 23 different camps. Ten weeks of fun-filled activities begin on June 6th and run through August 12th. Camps are provided for kids 5-17 with age-appropriate activities for all. To add to the family excitement, three adult camps are on the schedule. So it is time to look at your summer calendar and check out the Camp Brochure online to find the perfect camp schedule for summertime fun.
Adding to the return of the very popular traditional camps such as Reef Club Kids, Nature Exploration, ORC Golf Camp, Tennis Camp, Rising Star Camp, Reef Discovery, Scuba Dive Camp, Sailing, Safe Boating Camps, and Chef Camps are some NEW camp opportunities.
Brain Teaser Camp will create projects in science, technology and engineering along with a full list of outdoor activities for ages 7-11. Equestrian Camp has been such a hit that it now will be offered for three different weeks. A new Tween Pickleball Camp is for the player ready to develop their skills with on-court instruction. Tournament Tough Tennis Camp will challenge the serious tennis player age 8-17 and an Adult Tennis Camp will certainly attract family and friends.
Mic O’Keeffe, Vice President of Sports and Amenities, is proud of the high quality dedicated counselors that direct the ORC Camps. Camp Directors Christopher Nelson and Kyle Lynch work with the RCRA (Resorts and Commercial Recreation Association) to hire college-educated personnel in the field of recreation and hospitality. Along with these outstanding counselors are professional pros in golf, tennis, and pickleball leading ORC camps. And, of course, their enthusiasm is priceless. Campers come back for years to reunite with their counselors and their friends.
