The Oxbow Eco-Center’s popular summer day camp programs have moved online in the wake of the COVID-19 outbreak, providing families with summer camp activities from the convenience and safety of home.



In EarthQuest, campers will discover fascinating connections in nature and explore alliances between species such as tortoises and skunks, bats and cacti, alligators and egrets, and more! 

Registrants also receive Gilly’s Gear - a box of supplies, resources, and a journal to complete camp activities. In addition, materials are provided for extension activities that participants can complete at their own pace after each daily virtual session. Registered participants pick up their Gilly’s Gear the week prior to camp from the Oxbow Eco-Center in Port St. Lucie.



Two identical sessions of EarthQuest will be offered: July 27 - 31,  and August 3 - 7. These camps will provide live, interactive sessions with Oxbow educators Monday-Friday from 9:00 – 10:30 a.m. 



Youth ages 7-10. Participants must provide their own computer or tablet with video and microphone capabilities and reliable internet access for the full virtual camp experience.



Fee for a one-week EarthQuest session is $10 per child; limit two participants per device.

Register by emailing the Oxbow at oxbow@stlucieco.org by 12 p.m., Tuesday, July 21 for either session. Space is limited, so early registration is encouraged!
