Summer is here and the kids are home and camp season is here! After an entire year of school waking up early, following rules and doing homework kids need their time for recreation, creativity, and exploration. Mind you they also need their time for waking up late and have no plans, they need to also learn quietly how to entertain themselves!
Key Biscayne is a perfect camp scenario by itself, it is an ideal place for short-term rental or for a second home investment to spend all summer having both the children and adults spend quality time. The family-oriented community facilitates and creates a great ambiance to make friends and enjoy, between the beach, the park, the Community Center and most special your neighbor friends. Choosing a neighborhood to raise a family is very important when moving, relocating or buying a home Key Biscayne has the vibe of being on summer vacation all year around even for most residents.
For your little ones, you can plan all kinds of playdates for a few hours and then teach them to be home and quietly learn to entertain themselves. I remember planning summer days for my little ones always included some quiet exploration at home and then later in the day a few hours with neighbors friends at Beach Club, The Ocean Club or Key Colony were their favorite places. We then ended at the Ritz Carlton for a virgin frozen pina colada. Most importantly for them was they were with the same friends that went to school together and that were also their neighbors and ultimately they are friends that became family!
Now, once they are older they want to hang out and share with friends. Living in Key Biscayne they are fortunate to have the possibility to share and enjoy with friends like nowhere. The ability to meet with their friends bicycling to their houses and make different plans on their own like enjoying together at the Ocean Club Pool, playing soccer at the green village, basketball at the community center and ending at Sir Pizza is the most fortunate upbringing kids can have on today’s world. The independence and group skills are embedded for their life as they are learning, experimenting and living making their own choices.
Of course, the summer is long and some guided activities are also part of summer fun. Three months is too long for having them with no schedule or routine. Key Biscayne offers all sort of activities, short and longer season camps.
