The camp has 55 children, 6 to 11, sharing interesting water themes each week. The camp, operated by Marco Island Parks & Recreation staff, runs a full day, with each week having an educational theme.
Underwater sea creatures, tropical weather, hurricanes, fish in Marco's watery environment, and more have been, or will be, featured, said Mindy Matusiak, recreation manager.
