Out of 365 days, there are 45 days of summer reserved for pure fun. At the Deering Estate’s Summer Camp, we expect to make the most out of those 9 weeks of camp! Rain or shine, we will spend our time exploring the best nature has to offer. Campers will get the chance to hike, play, and discover how they can contribute to the protection of our protected natural areas. The Deering Estate’s Summer camp aligns with Miami Dade County Public School’s scheduled summer break.
