4-H Marine Camp in Niceville, FL


We loaded the camper and drove up to Niceville for my camp. Dad dropped us off and Emmerson and Mom camped alone for the week. I enjoyed some walks around the campground. I loved all the deer moss that was tucked back in the bushes.

We played in Rocky Bayou at the state park campground. The water was kind of stagnant so we tried to stay out of it.

We did wade a little but were worried about bacteria. We found out the next day they closed the water due to high bacteria counts.


I got dropped off at camp and settled right in. I waved good-bye and didn’t look back.


I don’t look like I am enjoying myself but I did! I was frustrated because the staff member couldn’t paint a dragon!


There weren’t really photos from camp so you will have to enjoy this photo of me with Chick Fil A and a frosted lemonade after camp pickup. A camp tradition of sugar treat after camp! IMG_1691

We stopped off at the Gulf World Aquarium on the way back to the campground.


I enjoyed seeing the mama and her baby swimming around in the pool.


What beautiful beaches and water. I had a blast at camp learning about marine life, jumping off of boats in 10 foot deep water, fishing and netting. I am looking forward to Marine Ecology this year for 4-H!
