Guaikinima Day Camp is a daily program of activities for children between 4 and 11 years focused on fun and contact with nature where the child can discover the natural setting while learning new skills, in addition to the values and philosophy of Guaikinima.
In Guaikinima Day Camp, children are organized by age group, the program will be developed in blocks per week from Monday to Friday from 9:00 am to 4:00 pm. We have carefully selected Oleta River State Park, Virginia Key Beach Park and Davie Ranch for it's natural areas for the best enjoyment and safety of children.
Activities will be offered based on programming designed for children to enjoy in nature while learning new talents, social skills, self-assurance and having fun in a healthy and safe environment.
