How about going to Florida for a learning adventure while the Wisconsin snow is still melting? For over 25 years, Biologist and Educator Michael Lane – Fort Staffer - has been leading the Marine Biology Trip to the Florida Keys. Do the mysteries of God’s Creation intrigue you? How about snorkeling a coral reef? What about getting high school or college credit for a Fort Trip?

This intense time will provide great adventure and serious learning about ocean life. Each year campers form life-long friendships as campers explore the ocean together and work as teams on learning projects. Add in excursions to various ocean habitats, snorkeling on a coral reef and fun night activities like volleyball tournaments, and you will find that this is a trip to remember. Count on Michael for deep Bible lessons, too. Transportation from Fort included in price. Limited highway pickups arrange-able. This trip can fill fast.
