The River Center is the place to be this summer for a roster of fun, environmentally-minded activities for all ages.
River Center Aquatic Adventure Summer Camp
The River Center is offering summer camp programs for students interested in a summer of outdoor fun, sun, and exploration. Our goal is to help each camper appreciate and understand the Loxahatchee River, take an active role in the conservation of the environment, and provide activities to increase independence, sportsmanship, and self-esteem.
With four counselors and just 16 campers per week, kids will explore the Loxahatchee River from the freshwater cypress swamps to the ocean's beautiful reefs in a safe and personal atmosphere. Our River Center educators are lifeguard certified, providing both on and off site experiences like no other camp.
Camp activities include: * kayak outings * fishing * snorkeling * swimming * standup paddle boarding * nature hikes * marine species collecting * feeding and caring for the River Center's aquariums * eco games & crafts * exploring the Loxahatchee River *

About The River Center
The River Center traces the Loxahatchee River from its pristine freshwater reaches to a teeming estuary, and eventually to the Jupiter Inlet where it spills into the Atlantic Ocean. The center presents some of the largest aquatic exhibits in the area with an interactive exploration of the river, diverse wildlife and its majestic environmental value. In addition, guests learn where their water comes from, how it is consumed and recycled back into the community. There are multi-media and live aquatic exhibits, and a touch tank teeming with aquatic life.
The Center offers programs for area elementary school programs and summer camp presentations. The River Center also provides learning experiences for middle and high school students, special interest groups, and non-traditional and informal learning groups.
The River Center was created by the Loxahatchee River District to further awareness about the river and to foster support for its preservation. Additional sponsors include the Loxahatchee River Preservation Initiative, The Van Pelt Foundation, South Florida Water Management District, the Town of Jupiter, the Community Foundation of Palm Beach and Martin Counties, and Solid Waste Authority.
