The time is now to start thinking about summer camps, and more and more resorts are offering amazing experiences for kids and teens. Do your kids want to explore a coral reef? Or maybe learning to make scones is more their style. There’s a camp out there for everyone. Take a look at a few fabulous and far-from-everyday camps that have hit my inbox recently:

Ocean Reef Club (Key Largo, FL): Ocean Reef Club, which offers both guest rooms and luxury vacation rentals, is offering more than a dozen different summer camps for kids. MarineLab is an interactive ecology-based camp designed for kids ages 10 to 14. Or, check out the Orvis Fly Fishing Camp where kids ages 12 to 16 can learn how to fly cast, tie knots and handle fish.

Mount Cinnamon Resort (Grand Anse, Grenada): Look for a unique cultural immersion program this summer celebrating the history and traditions of Grenada. Camp Cinnamon, which is for kids ages 4 to 12, includes traditional steel pan playing, hiking nature trails, costume making, origami and yoga.

Harmony Hotel (Nosara, Costa Rica): Look for a week-long Surf Survival Camp in August for kids ages 12 and older. Campers will learn practical medical skills they can use to treat a wide variety of illnesses and injuries they are most likely to encounter while surfing. Kids choose two of three activities: stand-up paddling, a kayak tour or ziplining. One 60-minute massage is also included.

The Biltmore (Miami, FL): From mid-June through early-August, the Biltmore will offer weekly hands-on cooking camps taught by chef instructors and acclaimed hotel chefs. Children ages 9 to 16 will learning cooking techniques and create culinary masterpieces.

Atlantis (Paradise Island, Bahamas): Head to Atlantis where kids of varying ages can experience any one of three different camps. Ocean adventurers can explore lagoons and embark on excursions to coral reefs as part of the Junior Scuba Explorers Camp. Or, head to the Junior Golf Camp where kids can learn all about golf fundamentals, like how to putt, chip, pitch and swing.

Are you sending your kid(s) to camp? I’d love to hear more about the plans you’re making for your summer.
