    Overview

    Children nine and up have opportunities for summer fun, exploration and learning at Ransom Everglades. Check out our two-week sports and academic camps and our signature Pine Knot Scholars program, which allows students to explore in the classroom and on Biscayne Bay, helping them grow as scholars and adventurers. We also offer an array of exciting courses through our Explorations Academy.

    Pine Knot Scholars Program at Ransom Everglades
    The Pine Knot Scholars Program at Ransom Everglades is the centerpiece of our summer programs. This four-week, full-day summer learning academy is designed to provide rising fifth through eighth graders an immersion in bay studies and the natural world along with more traditional instruction in math, English and world languages and co-curricular opportunities. This program will hark back to the outdoor-focused Pine Knot Camp that preceded the school’s founding, merging interdisciplinary and experiential learning and taking full advantage of the school’s location on the bay. It includes: traditional instruction from master teachers in two courses of their choice, participation in our interdisciplinary, environmental studies class, and an additional elective.

    All aspects of the Pine Knot Scholars program are for enrichment and do not result in academic credit at Ransom Everglades or any other school.

    Academic and Sports Camps at Ransom Everglades
    Summer at RE offers numerous Academic and Sports Camps in order to provide children ages nine and up opportunities to engage in sports and other activities through a variety of two-week camps. These interactive, skill-building camps will be hosted by our master teachers and varsity coaches in a variety of activities, including soccer, basketball, debate and robotics. Each camp is structured in half-day increments with the ability to combine activities for a full-day experience with lunch then included.
