Nature’s Wonders Kids Program: Be Amazed

Nature's Wonders may just produce future marine biologists.

Nature’s Wonders is the coolest kids club I’ve ever seen. Your children, ages 5 to 12, are going to have the most fascinating day – collecting coquinas to feed crabs, learning about sharks and loggerheads, taking nature and beach walks, peering into microscopes…you’re going to feel so good as a parent for sending your kids here! (And wait till your child starts telling you how that seashell got that perfectly round hole, or why that plant is vital to Florida’s sensitive ecosystem.) No kidding.

You’ll find Natures Wonder’s at the Ritz-Carlton Naples, and it’s led by certified Florida master naturalists. We had Ranger Randy, and we all fell in love with him. There are half- and full-day programs, but once you walk in, you’ll choose a full-day without doubt.

There are 11 aquariums with sharks, crabs, turtles, alligators and eels; amazingly brilliant and hands-on displays; Nature Vision Theater; kids’ size lab with microscopes…do I have to leave? Can I join the fun? It’s that good. In fact, Nature’s Wonders is American Camp Association®-accredited.

For more info about Nature’s Wonders and the Ritz-Carlton, Naples, log on to their website or call 239-514-6001. Tomorrow, I'll tell you all about where teens can hang out, at vue.
