The Bonaire Poetry winners

Let it go! Steals the show!

What a first poetry contest of Kids Sea Camp of the KSC summer! We had everything; deep thoughtful, personal and funny poems — and then we had Tanya Conklin.

Kids Sea Camp, Poetry, Buddy Dive, Bonaire

Tanya Conklin enjoys the joys of her families first Kids Sea Camp vacation in Bonaire at Buddy Dive Resort.

Tanya Conklin, the mother of two beautiful daughters was quiet and reserved all week. Pleasant, kind and (well, just a very nice unassuming person). She had a smile on her face all week and said “good morning” at breakfast everytime she saw me.

But on poetry night, Tanya blasted into Frozen’s “Let it Go” with such force everyone was awestruck. Not only was it the best performance of the night, it might well be one of the best performances of the KSC summer. Tanya Conklin really knows how to “Let it go.”

(To the tune of Frozen’s Let it Go)

The wind blows strong on Bonaire tonight
Not a frogfish to be seen
It’s a kingdom of wrasse and blennies
Look, there goes a Queen
The current’s raging like the kids at drop off time
I know they would like it
If only they would try
I must get in
I must go see
Be the good diver I always have to be
No touch, No take
The rules for me
I’m free!
Down Below 
Down Below
Can’t stay topside anymore
Down Below
Down Below
Put my gear on and giant stride
Here I dive in the night or day
Let the boat capsize!
Depth never bothered me anyway.

Tanya Conklin


Sacred Shapes

by Jess Reese

In an arid world, searching for a Golden Mean.
The maple’s triangle, Orion the Hunter’s hourglass,
The river’s sinuous serpentine.
This thirst is only quenched in a drenched domain.
Lost in the labyrinth of boulders.
Transfixed by a jelly’s translucent shoulders.
Ascending the spirals of feathery Christmas trees,
I marvel at the harmony of spheres,
And allow myself to be seduced by the symmetry
Of encrusting creatures.
The perfect circle of the inhale and the exhale.
God’s Geometry.
 
-Jess Reese, 6/25/15
Bonaire; Kids Sea Camp

Vernon White’s Poem:

Cow fish, hog fish

Eels, oh my!

Then it appeared:

Charlie’s giant eye!!

I swam, he swam

I looked, he looked back at me

Two bodies, enjoying the Carribean sea

Thanks Kids Sea Camp!


 

Jackie Horak’s Poem:

New friends, new swims

Scuba = Yes!

Smoothies, parrot fish

Donkeys = Check!

And glass-bottom jellyfish fields =

Let us never forget!

Thank you Kids Sea Camp!


Life Is (by Darrel Reese)

Life is

    a series of splashes

smiles hidden by snorkels and masks

giggles heard only by fish

Life is

    a descent into the unknown

leaving a trail of bubbles

the sorrow of certain ascent

Life is

    the sinuous swim in seeking

a slow paddle of curiosity

dances choreographed in a universal language

Life is

    a feeding frenzy

a spectrum of fleeting apparitions

memories recorded by the circuitry of eye and mind

Life is

   the clink of conversation

classy stories and classless jokes

beacons of light painted on a dark canvas

Life is

    an album of many collections

filled with personal reflections

shared celebrations and disappointments

Life is

the inhale at sunrise

meandering footprints in the sand

the exhale of sunset

Life is fun

    Life is family

Family is life.


Kids Sea Camp in Bonaire

Is my June affair.

Diving first time at age 12 is

Serious fun under the Sun.

Sure we feel we’re on the run,

Early morning after we rise,

Adventure is ahead of us.

Campers we all are,

Adults and kids alike.

Make the best of ourselves,

Pack away fun and experience.

BELIZE KIDS SEA CAMP- PARENT POEMS

July 3- 10, 2010

Week 2- Grand Prize Winner!

Sang to the tune of “Gilligan’s Island”

Now sit right back and you will hear a tale, a tale of “Kids Sea Camp”, that started from the Port of Belize, upon the good ship Bella.                                  

Margo is a mighty “Diving Mom”, her instructors brave and sure. Sixty three passengers that sail that day for a seven day tour. A seven day tour.

The weather had already been rough the week before, so the tiny ship sailed smoothly. If not for the great “Turneffe Island Staff”, the customers might be lost. The customers might be lost.

The ship docked neatly on the shores of this an exclusive island resort.

  • With Margo…, and her staff…
  • The “camera guy” (Fraser) and his wife (Tracy)
  • The “Magazine Girl” (Linda)…
  • The X Banker (Matt), and Nanette…

Here at “Kids Sea Camp”……

By: The MacDonald Family

**********************************************

 “Our 5th Attempt”

It was a musty and cold Saturday in September
and we could not believe we would soon face winter
So we booked again with Margo for the 5th time
while enjoying a few Corona’s with lime

Because we knew Belize would be hot
And enjoyable and fantastic I bid you not
Kids Sea Camp took Marie from SASY to SEAL
And Junior Open Water Looked like a sweet deal

Cause we share a passion for diving that never ends
Once again new people became our friends
Matt and Nannette, you were awesome teachers
But don’t follow Matt while tubing, you look at disasters

We keep telling people our awesome experience
But you we believe you must live it, so it will make sense
Eagle Rays and Sea Turtles are terrific
But there’s much more to Kid Sea Camp’s magic

Because over the years, we have met the McKees
The Shaffers, the Velasquez, to name a few
We say to all of you “Thank You” for this special week
And to Turneffe Island Resort whose valet diving was so chic

Evan though it was our 5th year
We still can’t write it good enough and clear
And first place will sure elude us
That is why our luggage is close to the bus

Nannette, Margo and Matt, thank you again for the memorable vacation
We are sure to come again to a wonderful destination.

By: Liz, Marie-Eve, JP

******************************************

Two years ago we went to Grand Cayman
Turned our son into a SEAL,
And said “how does that feel”

He replied “I like it a lot….
Is that all you’ve got? “ 

So now that he’s 10 here we go again,
Having a ball so far away from it all

The Resort has been great
And oh man all that we ate
The drinks, the people – all were the best
Evan managed to sneak in a little bit of rest
But the reason we’re here,
Of course it is clear

Dad loves to dive, says it makes him feel alive
Now my boy is a diver too, what’s a mother to do?
We couldn’t be prouder, couldn’t say it any louder

So I’m sure we’ll be back, another time or three
To new island paradises, how great will that be?

By: The Turners

*******************************************

Kids Sea Camp to Belize
Was just not for mezz
It was for my childs
hoping they would not get too wild

Thanks to Margo
for not booking us to Fargo
We love Turneffe Island Resort
for keeping the kids at the pool fort

And one thing is for sure
you can Belize it
We all came as strangers
But we are leaving as friends

By: The Pigg Family

*********************************************

Starfish are yellow
And sting rays are mellow

The ocean is calm
like sea life rest in your palm 

Diving is cool
Kids Sea Camp rules!

Sea Life Cameras never stop
If you forget to clip them on
They float straight to the top

********************************************

Oh! we are divers.
Our hair is sea weed
Our ears are made of clam shells
And they flop in strong currents 

Oh! gosh a reef shark
We are tough as turtles
We are the kids from
Kids Sea Camp….hey!

By: Matthew Family

**************************************

So came the day we decided on
Our yearly adventure
We knew no Theme Park, water park,
Water slide or magic make-believe land
Would be in our future 

Kids Sea Camp was the obvious choice.
It was clear in everyone’s voice
Reservations were made and the gear was all set
We were ready for our latest adventure yet

So early we wake up and rush to the airports
I pray they didn’t forget to pack in my dive shorts
To our dismay the lady at the counter said
“Guess what folks your flight was cancelled just now

No way we said, we have to get to Belize today
Not tomorrow or later, please let us know how?
An alternate route was planned so by bus to Chicago we’ll go.
They fly to Houston from there don’t you know?

In Chicago the Ticket Agent said; “I don’t think you’ll make it” as she typed on the keyboard ever so slowly.
I said; “hurry up with the typing lady and don’t think so lowly” 

So we rush to the gates clutching wallet, cell phone & belt.
I was so shaken & nervous I started to welt.

Finally we get to Belize; our luggage was missing,
So again with the fear and the loathing.
No worries said the crew, it’s in the last container
that they were still unloading.

So at last we make it to the ferry boat
We made it just in time.
We make it to Turneffe Island Resort
Oh so cool and sublime.

So to Kids Sea Camp we say we’re glad to be here
With Blue Hole diving, excellent food,
Great friends old and new, we couldn’t
Help but cheer.

With dive lessons, tubing rides &
Hermit crab races
You couldn’t help notice all the big
Smiles on all the kid’s faces.

And now as it ends we sit and
Think, what about next year?
No sweat, we’ll do it all again
To dive with sharks in Palau
No fear.

By: Joe Abadsantos

****************************************

Vacations are a time of family renewal.
Children have their parents all to their own and don’t feel they are being cruel.

KSC is that perfect venue to achieve all that and more
Parents get to relax, without much chore 

Kids get to explore
a whole new world

Parents get to indulge in their favorite vocation.
While not feeling like they have to kill their kids by suffocation.

Leave it to Margo to make it all happen
You can probably get it all booked without even robbing Wells Fargo 

New destinations all over the map
So get on board and don’t get caught taking a nap.

You’ll want to come back year after year
Much to everyone’s cheer.

By: Benjamin Schaffer and Stephanie Van Zandt

2010 SASY

SASY SASY what can I say
We have the best adventures every day
We snorkel with dolphins that was so cool
with Annalise, Rordon, Lilly and Amberleigh
How much better could a child’s life be
With Angela, Olivia, Bev, Brook and Me
We have a treasure hunt with real money,
And ran around hunting on a white sand beach that’s very sunny
We hope Ronnie will be proud
Athough Margo does not bark or bite or yell out loud
She brings canvas and paint and did her best
To laugh and giggle and dot alot just like Rogest
We had so much fun
And we are sorry the summer is done
We will not shed a tear
Because we know we will see you all next year.

Big hugs to all my SASY’s… Thanks for sharing your summer with me.

BELIZE KIDS SEA CAMP
PARENT POEMS
June 26-July 3, 2010

It was so fun to celebrate our 10 year anniversary with some really great families this summer in Belize. This was the perfect way to start off our 2010 Kids Sea Camp season. We are just sad that it all went by so fast. We had a wonderful time with all of the Kids Sea Camp families and these poems bring back great memories and make us smile. It is amazing how many poets attend Kids Sea Camp each year (and some get started as young as age 6!). There were some really amazing prizes given out this year including a SeaLife DC 1200 Digital Underwater Camera which was awarded to our first place winners! We cannot wait to see everyone again next year! Our 2011 Belize weeks are June 11-18 & 18-25. Call us today to find out more- 1-800-934-3483. Is your poem missing? If so, be sure to email it to us (kids@kidsseacamp.com) so that we can post it! See you all again very, very soon!

Week 1  Grand Prize Winner!!! 

Kids Sea Camp Rap  

We left our home – our first time –
Heading off to kids sea camp
But when we final –ly touched down
Everything was very damp

Due to rain – and hurricanes
We could not leave – from Belize City
With no hot water – and no A.C.
Man, this is really…. Lame

We finally left – and made it to
Our private island paradise
Where everyone — is catered to
And, boy, the staff is oh so nice

On the island – there’s soaring birds
And hermit crabs are everywhere
The only crabs – the Princess has
Are those found in your underwear

At Kids Sea Camp – the food’s first rate
And all the meals have all the trimmings
But late at night – when shots ring out
Beware! You might see Michael swimming

Every morning – at 8 o’clock
The boats are loaded up with gas
And at the elbow – you best take care
The current might just kick your … butt

But now it’s time – for us to go
Let’s pack up all our gear and tanks
And at this time – I’d like to show
Our deepest gratitude and thanks

To Margo, Sven – and Tabitha
And Nanette and ex-banker Matt
Each of you is just so cool
It’s true that you are just all that

To Island Matt – and all his crew
Always smiling and never flustered
Your attitude and constant care
It’s clear to me you all past muster

So thanks again – to one and all
I feel my eyes are getting damp
There’s nothing left – for me to do
‘cept plan my next trip to – Kid’s – Sea – Camp

By: Josh & Nate Comay

Second Place Winner!!!

Life is good

Life is good when you stay at the Princess Hotel due to Tropical Storm Alex. Yes, life is good when your AC goes out, shower is out, TV is out and you find that everyone is still alive after one night and not killed each other.

Life is good when you arrive at Turneffe Island to see familiar faces and know that this is now home for one week. From the fresh cut flowers on our bed, to the view to die for, and a bonus that the AC worked, shower worked, and there was not a need for a TV!

Life is good and got better when we found out that we did not have to clean our BC’s, do any laundry, or even shave.

Life is good even if your someone gets seasick or drinks too much! The reason life is good is because each challenge and opportunity makes us realize that it’s good to be alive!

By: David McKee

**********************************************

Honorable Mention!!

As the sun starts winking at the tallest palm
I am still from dusk to dawn
I extend my welcome to the day
To the cobalt blue and amber gold turquoise rays
The sea is my constant companion at once my friend and my foe
She soothes and rocks me to and fro.
But when she and the driving wind conspire
They beat, battle with and injure me dire
But alas I am wiser than their folly
And I know full well we need & are nothing without each other
Day after day, I am constant while the island evolves
I watch as trees grow tall and coconuts fall
As children play & the faithful pray
As cormorants nest and Jr. Open Water kids do their best.
I am blessed with wonderful companions
Tarpins, tangs, parrots, manatees
Dolphins who glide by and entertain me
As for the stealthy and slithering crocs
Well, I am bound to silence as they stalk
I listen by day and by night – I’m all knowing
I try to sooth as mothers pace and await their brood.
I smile as lovers kiss and dangle their feet
And make plans where the sea and stars meet
I am your gateway to diving wonders
And your welcome when the air is spent
I feel sad when Bella departs for a farewell dive
But offer up my warmth when new friends arrive
But of all the island wonders why am I the least appreciated
I am your bridge to the magical sea
I soak up your fears & joys as you walk on me
I am the first to open myself to you
and the last to say adieu
That you never notice me, I fret not.
For I am only so honored, so happy I can be your dock.

By: Corinne Dufka

**********************************************

Honorable Mention!!

I was so excited to come to Belize
And Turneffe Island made me so pleased.
My dad was upset about the England score
But at least the USA went out the day before.
Margo said hermit crabs were plenty to see
I found one that fit just right with me.
My SASY training was a great adventure
with Jet, Andrew, Tristan and Spencer.
Carlos was great at the snorkel tour
And Gorges bar tricks had my mom in awe.
The staff was great to my parents and me
Thank you Matt, Morag, Deb and JT.
So to my new friends, Cheerio
Tough luck, buddies, I have another week to go.
But don’t be sad and have good cheer
I am sure I will you all next year.

Day by Day
Kids Sea Camp – Belize 2010

Rain, Rain — please go away,
Matt and some guests — will just have to stay.

The Manager says — “yes, it is done”
Again and again — to every one.

Nothing is done — everything is broken
But you can go bowling — and have a game token

A long night — with no AC to be had
We do not sleep well — and we get very mad.

A breakfast buffet — the Island still far away . . .
What’s this? Hooray! — We will go today!

We climb on the boat — with hopes in the sky,
Turn to the Princess — and wave happily good bye.

After a while — an island comes into view . . .
I’m so excited — how about you?

Met on the dock — with bright, smiling faces
A friendly manager — showed us our places.

A good hearty lunch — prepared with grace,
Then off to go diving — to dock how we race.

In the ocean — the fish do abound
And back on the boat — there are smiles all around.

Dinner is served — and the pasta is grand
Then the adults all relax – with their drinks in hand.

George is the man – in command of the bar
And at the ring toss — he is king by far.

Sound asleep in a room — that is as cool as can be,
Dreaming of all — the things we will see.

Good coffee and chatting — and new friends to be had
The kids off to camp — with the parents so glad.

Diving again — we just can’t get enough
Turtles, rays and spadefish — man this is tough.

Back to the lodge — and a peek at the pool
Our kids in SCUBA gear — is so very cool!

Sven and Matt in control — and driving the bunch
I think they’ll learn diving — I just have a hunch.

A new Matt arrives — after many tough hours
He dives right away — for all its healing powers.

Marcel and Brad — lead the troops underwater
For the lion fish out there — the stakes can’t get much hotter.

Fraiser is happy — to keep cameras on hand
And downloads the photos — when we get back to land.

The ladies in the kitchen — keep us fueled up with food
Always smiling and laughing — with good attitudes.

Carlos is the best guide — on the snorkeling boat
He finds all the lobsters — and keeps the kids afloat.

Friends like Michael and Monty — keep the pace nice and light
As we chill and relax — after dinner each night.

The little ones chase crabs — race and run all around
But funny, not one — single teen can be found!

JT is the master — with fishing pole in hand
And I’m sure that he knows — Nate’s his biggest fan!

Matt and Morag – run a tight ship
They keep us happy and safe — even when they take some lip.

Margo’s the one — to make Kids Sea Camp fly
And I still can’t believe — how fast it all flew by.

To all of our new friends — we’ve enjoyed meeting you so much
Hope to dive with you some day — and do keep in touch.

Thanks to Kids Sea Camp staff — and the whole Island crew
It wouldn’t be half as good — without all of you.

Alex changed our plans
Blue Hole was elusive
Crabs were plentiful
Diving done well
Eagle Ray spotted
French Angelfish found
Grouper gazed at
Hot days, cool nights
Imaginations stirred
Junior Open Waters passed
Kids laughing
Lionfish hunted
Made new friends
Nudibrachs noticed
Often eating good food
Princess wasn’t fun
Quintessential Kids Sea Camp
Reefs visited
Sunburn gotten
Tubing in the caves
Underwater world
Visions of next year
Windy days changed plans
Exactly as desired, if not quite as we thought
Yellow sponges seen
Amazing time for all

Kids Sea Camp 2010
Belize it or not

We all climb on planes from near & far
For rest and relaxation, we only go 5 star.
To Turneffe Island Resort
For fun-in-the-sun and a little SCUBA sport.

But Tropical Storm Alex had another plan,
Your vacation now goes down the can.
Accomodations were 1 star at best,
But, at least (maybe) it is a place to rest.
Belize City’s only entertainment center,
The Princess Hotel-
Wasn’t the stay really just swell?
And, oh by the way, what was that smell?

The next day, the sun shone over the blue
Maybe dreams really can come true.
The ride was a bit choppy, but alas,
A little Dramamine helped the time pass.

Dive gear, luggage, Don’t worry, Don’t fret.
Let’s get everything together quick, it was time to get wet.
Through trials and training, they went through the paces;
But in the end, Jet won all the hermit crab races.

The week went on with-Seal Team and SASY who could want more
With Margo is charge Kids Sea Camp’s never a bore.

Jr. Open Water students studied hard, they can’t miss
They’re revved and ready to explore the great abyss.

The teens bob around on the Eagle Ray
For in one place they can never stay.

Miss Bella rocked us adults to and fro
And from her stern we jumped right in.
Hey Josh- don’t forget your fin!
Marcel and Brad guided us below
Follow drums to morays it was always a show
And at seven minutes deco, it was up we go.

Sad are the lionfish, what a terrible plight.
They want to live, they want to fight.
But in these Caribbean waters
It is shot to kill on first sight.
Liz was ready for the hunt
Kill one, kill all, even the runt
Seven in one dive,
And yet they survive.

A jail fish and candy cane shrimp
What can these strange creatures be
A grunt of some sort and red banded
Coral shrimp- quite obvious you see!

From SASY to SCUBA and time in the pool.
We really stay in the water just to keep cool.

The kids watched “Up” while we went down
At night the reef becomes a different town.
Slipper lobster, blood worms, and urchins
Seem like creatures from the past.
The dives, the day have gone by so fast.

Strangers we came to the Caribbean Sea so blue,
Friends we became, the old and the new.
Now is the time to depart,
However, please take heart.
Though we say Goodbye, Adios, and auf Wiedersehen
It is not the end-
Simply farewell, ‘til we meet again
My dear friend.

The sharks are swimming
The lights are dimming.
The crocs eyes glow in the night.

We saw lots of fish in the sea
A few even saw a manatee
Drums, angels, jaws and a doc
Permits, trumpets,  trunks and a croc
Departing will cause great misery.

By: Shellie Sandel

**********************************************

Day one of our trip began,
Four fair travelers looking for tans.
The Belize flight so smooth and so nice
No need, really, to think twice.

Hmm, well… the luggage is here,
But what of our dive gear??
No worries, or frowns for equipment not found,
Only smiles all around.

On, on to the Princess we go,
With Matt and JT whom we now know.
Alex met us with blowing gales,
And what to think of those 8 foot swells?

One room with hot water, but no sign of air.
In another the smell was beyond compare.
But all met and laughed and made the best
Of what some would say was a royal mess.

The blues, the greens of the ocean scene
Erased the nightmare of the Princess dream.
Sand crabs on the run from kids having fun.
Why even manatee and crocs come here to enjoy the sun.

Real enjoyment comes after the breakfast bell has rung
We ride, we splash, we dive to thrive
Because it makes us feel so much alive.

What surprises await us under the sea
We anxiously want to see.
From the minute we enter till the moment we leave
God’s creatures come out and greet us with glee.

Back at the island with tummies so full,
The grown ups gather and shoot the bull.
Morag and Debbie tend to the guests
Making sure to give their best.

Jorge and Omerylon serve up the drinks
To refresh the weary divers and help them to think.
As we drift off to sleep to the sound of the waves,
Thoughts of Kids Sea Camp fill kids’ brain waves.

By: Mark Brown

**********************************************

Margo and the crew
Have taken us some place quite new
A private resort
Or something of that sort
An awesome paradise
That’s amazingly nice

Beaches of sand
That when you hold in your hand
Remind you days of full of fun
Except the fun is here in the sun
With palm trees California wishes they had.

The staff is very polite
You come home to a clean home each night
And food almost as good as a mom’s
Spectacular diving

The fish here are thriving
Theres so many species to go “Woah!”
Hermit crabs at night
Give some quite a fright
But truly they aren’t all that bad

Where the teens go
No one really knows
Sometimes we wish we had an intercom

The bugs are pretty bad
But that doesn’t make me mad
I can deal with a few mosquitoes.

So thank you everyone
Its been so much fun
Don’t want to go
But we have our own lawns to mow.
Yet, I am glad for this once in a lifetime trip.

I was really happy that we came to Belize. The Kids Sea Camp was the best. I really loved seeing all of the hermit crabs crawling in the sand. I liked when we went Scuba Diving in the ocean. I loved it when we used the cameras and took pictures underwater. I am sad that we are leaving tomorrow.

Fiji is a dream come true

Filled with shades of every blue

Our troubles seem so far away

Where only happy days are had

And lots of memories far from sad

With New friends to be made

Especially that scary Ron Rogest

He filled our days with lots and lots of dots that was the best

Kids Sea Camp where kids can play with out a care

And moms and dads have special moments to share

Oh how I will long for these days

Where sunshine and happiness guide our ways
