Enjoy Kayaking, Yoga, Environmental Education, and More in Estero
ESTERO, Fla. (Jan. 5, 2021) – Last summer, the Villages of Estero developed a partnership with the Bonita Springs YMCA to provide more outside experiences for the Estero community at Camp Estero on Corkscrew Road, near US 41.. These outdoor activities include kayaking, fishing, yoga, environmental education, youth field trips, day camps, corporate retreats, free family fun days and more. Estero residents are offered a 25% off discount on activities at Camp Estero which are facilitated by the YMCA. The YMCA also offers scholarships to families that qualify.
Different educational programs are offered at Camp Estero, such as Habitat Helper, where students will learn the basic components that make up a habitat. This program was introduced at the 2020 Thanksgiving Camp. Other YMCA Camp Estero programs include the Riveting River program, which will teach the importance of monitoring the conditions and health of an environment and the Amazing Adaptions program, which will concentrate on educating students about the three different ways an organism adapts to its environment. The YMCA is now accepting youth field trip applications, where school groups and other youth programs can explore these wonderful environmental education programs. The community can email [email protected] for more details about the environmental education program, kayaking, yoga, corporate retreats and more.
“Camp Estero provides the community with nearly 5 acres of outdoors fun, learning and exploration,” said Angel Cerritos, Bonita Springs YMCA Executive Director, “We are excited to
have this new resource for our community to use for learning, exercising and team building activities for years to come.” “Join us Saturday, January 16, 2021 from 9am to 1pm for our quarterly FREE Family Fun Day full of fun games and activities for the entire family.”
