St. Lucia 2015:

Kids sea camp 2015

(Narrator)
We have mixed Henry Rollins, frank Zappa, and Kurt Vonnegut to present this
suite.
(Ahem).
This is the central organizer.
We begin our story with a mild mannered family from Midwest suburbia.  The
smith family consists of the father Floyd, who puts in 8 to 5 as an
accountant. The matriarch breanna smith is a door to door makeup salesman
who also runs the household.  Elder son aiden smith is an all star high
school athlete who texts his high school sweetheart Buffy nightly.  And
finally the youngest Alex smith just started his gig as a part time foot
model.  The smiths have saved their Michigan 10 cent bottles for the year to
take their dream vacation at kids sea camp on the mystic island of St Lucia
in the West Indies.  We now take you through their adventures as told from
the tongue of Brenna smith.

(Brenna)
Long long long travel first day
We made it just after sunset to Anse Chastenet

Day one of diving Was a bit hectic
But it all got better when aiden saw an eagle Ray

For Alex Sunday was his first ocean dive ever It was exciting for him to see
an eel For Mom and Dad 3 dives in one day was a steal

***new  movement ***

Monday brought more diving specifically at Turtle Reef It’s not known for
turtles but two turtles were spotted Even the divemasters were in disbelief

But Monday didn’t end there the smiths went rogue Headed down the road of
death for some zip line express!
Dad that’s a mango tree not Mahogany tree get guitars off your head

*new movement*

Day 3 was Tuesday brought a sea horse for us to see We cannot forget we had
garden eels too.  They may be small but they are cool Teen boat had
stonefish and flounder abound Floyd and I  went jungle biking and I fell on
the ground

Movement

Hump day!  Hoot hoot! We had so much fun Floyd and Brianna went kayaking
before lunch and only one oops plunge That was Floyd!
 By afternoon parents got a frog fish it was as yellow as yellow can be And
because everyone has their favorite snail.  Floyd got flamingo tongues
galour The kids went jungle biking and hit an extreme trail Good thing they
had helmets Alex went over the handle rails

Movement

(Narrator)
The smith family adventures pause on Thanksgiving day, where oddly enough
the local French creole culture has prepared an American traditional
thanksgiving dinner for lunch…and doubly oddly enough have arranged for an
American football game to be played in the local town colleseum.  We return
to the tales of the smith matriarch.

(Brenna)

Thursday Turkey day.  Or should we say 7 – 7 tie football game day
Competition was high but fun and sun was in the air In the end all was well
and even got the Lee Family photo done And do we mention Detroit Lions won
and the Cowboys lost…no Romo savior today!

Movement

Friday family dive day and we finished our vacation on a high note First
Pinnacles with both a small and large porcupine fish Then on to Turtle Reef
for none other than 2 turtles again!

Movement
(Narrator)
Kids Sea Camp provides a week for families to be families And enjoy a really
cool activity of diving Thanksgiving week is the holy triumvirate Kids Sea
Camp Anse Chastenet And Scuba St Lucia thumbs up we say We hope everyone
here had a fantastic Vaca!

Fiji Bequa Lagoon resort Kids Sea Camp week 2015

Song by: Kimberly O’Young (Molkentin)
Let Us Dive – Fiji style. (sung to the tune of a Disney hit, Frozen’s “Let It Go”)
1).
Moonlight glitters cross The ocean at night
An eagle ray glides along on its wing
The sea is alive with creatures
And Old Neptune is their King
The waves are rolling, but the fish don’t really care
They’re quite content in. their A qua-tic lair
The gobi fish play hide and seek
Look quickly in the sand and take a peek
Ribbon eels are  black but then turn blue
It’s true.
Chorus:
Let us dive, Let us dive
With Kids Sea Camp in Fiji
Let us dive, Let us dive
In the West Pacific Sea
We love the corals and anem o ne
But the water’s cold
When diving in Fiji
You’ll wanna pee and pee
2)
Barracuda, sharks and turtles
Make Everything seem small
What used to be so scary
Now doesn’t frighten me at all
Teeming with life and vibrancy
The ocean’s secrets, now revealed to me
Fish swim and play, no boundary-
They’re free
Chorus:
Let us dive, Let us dive
With Kids Sea Camp in Fiji
Let us dive, Let us dive
In the West Pacific Sea
The shark dive rocks
Every one agrees
But The water’s cold
When diving in Fiji
You’ll wanna pee and pee
3)
Explore a sunken boat wreck
From the bow down to the stern
See the    colorful soft corals
Explore and you will learn
How feathers and anemone
Now call the boat their home
for all to see.
A beautiful sight
When you dive Fiji…
Chorus:
Let us dive, Let us dive
With Kids Sea Camp in Fiji
Let us dive, Let us dive
In the West Pacific Sea.
Our favorite site were the corals At Fantasy
But the  water’s cold
When diving in Fiji
You’ll wanna pee and pee
4)
Visit nemo’s garden
There’s not much down below
But you’ll see some magic coral
An electric clam will glow
Safety stop atop at twenty feet
Surge across the middle of clownfish beat
See some popcorn shrimp
A nudibranch or two
Woo hoo!
Chorus:
Let us dive, Let us dive
With Kids Sea Camp in Fiji
Let us dive, Let us dive
In the West Pacific sea.
Corals and anem. O ne
The water’s cold
When diving in Fiji
You’ll wanna pee and pee
5)
Take me on a shark dive
To cathedral there and back
Mind the choppy waters
Watch your head so you don’t get whacked.
The current there is very great
But the shark dive rocks,
Just don’t tempt fate
Sil very  remora swim round and round
As sharks come to ground
Chorus:
Let us dive, Let us dive
With Kids Sea Camp in Fiji
Let us dive, Let us dive
In the West Pacific sea.
The shark dive’s cool,
Every one agrees
But The water’s cold
When diving in Fiji
You’ll wanna pee and pee
6)
Chum the site with fish heads
So big sharks will know      to come
We want bull sharks, lemons and tigers
Cuz seeing them is fun.
Hump headed wrasse come over too
Plenty food for all the fish to chew
A huge feeding party in the sea
Brings the sharks to me.
Chorus:
Let us dive, Let us dive
With Kids Sea Camp in Fiji
Let us dive, Let us dive
In the West Pacific sea.
The shark dive’s cool,
Every one agrees
But The water’s cold
When diving in Fiji
You’ll wanna pee and pee
