2020 Inshore Camp New Format (due to concerns regarding COVID-19)
The Inshore Day Camp will look a little different this summer, but it’s a go! We will be implementing staggered drop-off and pick-up times with a slightly shorter camp day; however we are adding an extra 30 minutes of guided fishing everyday! Based on your camper’s assigned fishing team, you will be assigned specific times (times listed below) to drop-off and pick-up your camper. This information will be sent to you via email and text in the coming weeks. This will limit the amount of campers at the marina to only four at any given time. Lunch and after-care will not be available this summer; campers can bring their own lunch or a snack to have on the boat. As always, chips and water are supplied. We will be holding our daily slideshow presentations and Friday awards ceremony online via Zoom everyday at 3:30 PM.
This new day camp format was approved by the Tampa Police Department and the Florida Fish & Wildlife Commission.
Your time slot will be one of the following:
8:30 am – 1:00 pm, 8:40 am – 1:10 pm, 8:50 am – 1:20 pm, 9:00 am – 1:30 pm, 9:10 am – 1:40 pm, 9:20 am – 1:50 pm, 9:30 am – 2:00 pm, 9:40 pm – 2:10 pm, 9:50 am – 2:20 pm, and 10:00 am – 2:30 pm
