Key West, FL 33040
Ages 5-14 (Please note that due to the intensive nature of our camps, we are unable to accommodate 4 year olds)
Join us for a week of pirate themed activities. The children will make pirate pouches to collect treasure on a nature walk, make personalized pirate flags, learn authentic pirate knots and lashings, participate in a treasure hunt with puzzles and riddles and compete in a day long water battle for ‘the booty’. No Pirate Camp would be complete without a trip to Fort Zachary Taylor to learn how to defend a fort.
