Summer of “WOW” a Success!

Wonders of Water (WOW)

Hats off to our friends at Adventures in Paradise, who created and sponsored the Wonders of Water (WOW) program this summer with The Heights Center!

The ‘WOW’ project was designed to enhance learning and life experiences for 4th to 6th grade students participating in The Heights Center’s summer camp program. Adventures In Paradise took the children on sea life encounter tours which included: a boat ride, collecting water samples for research purposes, learning about the sea life they encountered and gaining a personal appreciation for the water and wildlife that are right out their backdoors.

“Even though the students live close to local beaches and shoreline, many never have an off shore experience. We were excited to bring our passion and knowledge for the local waters and wildlife to the program participants,” stated Evelyn Stewart, an owner of Adventures In Paradise. “Our staff of excellent naturalists, guides, and captains had a great time sharing their expertise with the kids. From our viewpoint, the program was a success and we hope to make the ‘WOW’ program an experience the kids will eagerly anticipate each year.”

“The kids and the staff consider the ‘WOW’ program the best field trip experience they have ever had!” stated Debra Mathinos, Director of Lifelong Learning, at The Heights Center. “They loved being on the water, in a boat, catching and touching the sea life they collected. The kids’ reactions were priceless, and I know the staff had just as much fun as the campers did. We hope we can continue the program next year.”
