Great field trip with summer camp! My group had tons of fun!


Without question, Under Blue Waters is one of the BEST camps my kiddos have ever attended. We have been huge fans since the company’s start. U.B.Waters’ owner Maya Shoup and her team are friendly, fun and professional. The staff is passionate about what they do; very knowledgeable counsellors and it shows that they all have years of experience.
Under Blue Waters is no-nonsense when it comes to SAFETY: ocean/beach safety, water and sun safety are all covered and made a daily top priority. Your kids will come home happy and exhausted from a day of snorkeling, swimming, exploring and learning; he or she will truly have a memorable and unique camp experience.
Plus, all ages will love it! From young kids just starting elementary school to teenagers! Marine Science lessons and hands-on activities change from week to week & summer to summer, so kids are always learning something new. My kids and their friends have become equally enthusiastic as Maya and her team about the ocean….and I feel like I’ve learned almost as much as my campers have!
UNDER BLUE WATERS is a MUST for ocean adventure and fun!!


Our camp week is always full of so many fun activities!! Happy Faces Group, LLC loves this camp!
