Fun Things to Do with Kids in Cape May NJ this summer. This new and exciting Ecoventure Adventure Summer Cape in Cape May led by a staff of trained naturalists offers fun, in an environmentally focused day camp program that incorporates science, nature, and outdoor adventures in Cape May and Wildwood Crest.
Each child can experience a summer vacation like never before! Whether you live in the Cape May County area or you’re visiting the shore on vacation, EcoVentures offers daily outdoor adventures for boys and girls, ages 5-13. Camp takes place from 10am to 4pm, Monday-Friday at participating hotels and resorts, and gives children the opportunity to experience beachside activities like fishing, skim boarding, snorkeling, and more, all while learning about marine biology and the environment.
Each day’s camp focuses on a theme, one which incorporates a physical component think bodyboarding, snorkeling, skimboarding, and local fishing field trips.
Using our hands-on approach to teach nature-based adventure activities, our dedicated camp instructors harness children’s curiosity and investigative minds to inspire them while having the time of their lives. We incorporate environmental education into every aspect of our programs: campers learn about tidal movements and waves during skim and body boarding lessons; identify fish and shellfish species, as well as their local significance, while snorkeling; and learn about beach erosion and dynamic food webs while on beach walks.
