There are restrooms and limited locker rooms at the camp facilities. There is water available, but if you are sensitive to water taste, we recommend you bring your own water.

You will be required by the facility to sign a waiver to participate at the camps. You will receive an email where you can do it online. If you do not complete it before the first day of camp, you will need to complete it at the facility.

If you are looking for a beach experience, you can stay at Clearwater or St. Pete beach (there are plenty of other smaller beach communities in between the two as well).

Things to Do

 

The Tampa Bay area is known for its beaches and water activities: sailing, fishing, dolphin viewing, manatees, kayaking, you name it. A canoe or kayak trip down the Hillsborough River is a great experience.

You can visit Busch Gardens for roller coasters and a Jeep safari. If you like art, the Dali museum is in St. Petersburg. You can also visit the Chihuly Art Gallery while in St. Petersburg.

The Tampa Riverwalk is a fairly recent addition and is worth the visit – you can stop at Armature Works for some food and, perhaps even entertainment. The Channelside District has an open-concept eating area and you can visit the Florida Aquarium.

There are plenty of other things to do in the Tampa Bay area. You can find these in Tripadvisor or

Eating

 

There are plenty of good restaurants in the area. A few notable ones are Ulele, Bern’s Steakhouse (the dessert room alone is worth it), and the Columbia Restaurant (can check out the flamenco show while there).

Right down the road from the camps is Columbus Blvd, which features many Cuban and Spanish-style restaurants. You can also find plenty of Peruvian, Colombian, and Venezuelan fare on Armenia Avenue, not far from the camps. Some food choices include Happy Fish (Peruvian), La Pequeña Colombia, and Nico’s Arepas (Venezuelan).

If you want to try out a small Uruguayan steakhouse, you can visit Renzo’s on Kennedy. For Ramen we like Dosunco, also on Kennedy. For breakfast you can find several Cuban bakeries in the area where you can get a Café con Leche and pastry or toast.

We also have several local breweries (Seventh Sun, Big Storm, Cigar City, and Coppertail Brewing among many more).

Weather

Tampa Bay is generally warm to mild weather. There may be some cold in the morning or evenings but generally not so during the day once the sun peaks out.
