Now that schools are out, there is a healthy option at Camana Bay’s summer camp which offers fun, education and experience for children of all ages and interests.
For the child with a penchant for athletics, Camana Bay’s sports-centred third annual Multi-Sport Camp provides a healthy outlet for little all-stars wanting to improve their skills, while keeping them active and engaged.
Held at the Camana Bay Sports Complex, campers ages 6 to 14 will explore a wide variety of sports in a recreational, noncompetitive environment under the supervision of some of Cayman’s top coaches.
The camp is geared toward beginner to intermediate levels and focuses on developing kids’ skills and techniques. Daily activities include basketball, volleyball, tennis, swimming, football, Ultimate Frisbee and street hockey.
Camana Bay’s Multi-Sport Camp takes place from 8 to 12 July and 15 to 19 July from 8am to noon (drop-off 7.30 to 8am). Cost is $125 per week and parents can sign kids up for one or both weeks. To register, contact [email protected] or call 640-2878.
The summer holidays are a time for children to explore the outdoors, pursue interests, meet new friends and try new things. And Cayman’s natural surroundings offer a wealth of opportunities for young minds and curious senses.
Held in partnership with Sea Elements, the Camana Bay Sea & Discover Camp gives campers ages 8 to 12 a chance to dive into Cayman’s marine environment and discover the wonders it has to offer through a host of hands-on and educational activities.
From daily snorkelling trips, lionfish dissections and catboat demonstrations to underwater photography, marine biology and a trip to Stingray City, the Sea & Discover Camp engages children while developing a deeper understanding of Cayman’s marine environments and the importance of local conservation. The all-day camp runs for three weeks, from 15 July to 2 August, and the cost is $295 per week. Campers will meet on Market Street in the space across from Bedside Manor at 8.30am and pick-up is at 3pm. For more information or to sign-up, contact [email protected]

Camana Bay’s 2013 summer camp schedule will end spectacularly, as aspiring hoop stars live out their basketball fantasies at the annual Camana Bay Orlando Magic Basketball Camp. Taking place 22 to 26 July at the Camana Bay Arts & Recreation Centre, budding ball players can practice their jump shots as professional youth coaches from the NBA franchise Orlando Magic teach young campers dribbling, shooting and passing skills.
In addition to one-of-a-kind professional instruction, full-court games and friendly contests, campers will have the opportunity to train with a special guest player from the Orlando Magic.
Now in its fifth year, this popular camp fills up fast. To make the most of the unique training opportunities, the camp is split into two sessions.
The first session takes place from 8.30am to noon and is for players 7 to 12 years old. From 12.30 to 4pm, ball players ages 7 to 12 can enjoy an afternoon of skill-building and live games. The cost is $150 for the week and includes a camp T-shirt, giveaways and awards.
“We’re looking forward to hosting another great series of camps at Camana Bay this summer. From sports enthusiasts to nature lovers to budding chefs, this year there’s a camp for kids of every age and curiosity,” said Jeffrey Wight, sports and recreation manager at Camana Bay. “Not only do our camps offer young residents and visitors a host of dynamic and healthy activities, they allow kids to pursue interests outside of school and try new, one-of-a-kind experiences.”
