Kids Sea Camp Bonaire

Was just right for this brothers’ pair

Helena Lubnow


Helena Lubnow

Sunday was the first day of it all

Everyone’s excitement was either too big or too small

There was introductions and diving to be done

We all had fun, that first day

And there were more adventures on the way!

For the rest of the week, there were activities galore

From night diving to tubing from kayaking and more!

I don’t think anyone could bore!

It was even tough to stay alive in Woody’s zombie dive

When Saturday comes, pack up your stuff,

The fun had gone on for enough,

Come on everybody, let’s say farewell,

Goodbye, Kids Sea Camp Bonaire, See you next year!

Smith Family Poem


Smith Family

My first Kids Sea Camp in here
The ocean adventure is near,
But first I must know the facts
From Pepe, Menno and Dax
Got my snorkel
Got my mask
Got my gear, I know the tasks
With my friends and teachers,
We leave behind the land and beaches
To the jungle down below, we search for animals galore
Lions – Parrots – Porcupine fish and more
My parents, they share,
Of the seahorse and frogfish they stare
And I can’t wait to see
With my own eyes and BCD
… But … if it weren’t for my darn ear,
I’d be able to clear
I guess I’ll be back to Kids Sea Camp again next year

Roatan Summer 2018 Poems

Under the Sea with KSC


Boney Family

The seaweed is always greener
When you go with KSC
There’s plenty of scuba diving
And wonderful things to see
They’ll take you to see the island
And bring lots of things to you
Fire dancers and Garifuna
The culture will shine right through
{chorus} Under the sea – under the sea
Life is just better down where its wetter take it from me
You’ll see the turtles and the rays
You’ll see the chorals and the bays
Whether you’re boating or your just floating
Under the sea!
We came to the Mayan Princess
On beautiful Roatan
We dove with the Mayan Divers
And met other scuba fans
Aly, Robbie, Lilly and all staff
They made sure that fun was had
And woody led zombie diving
When he didn’t feel so bad!
{chorus}
So now that we’ve come to Friday
The day we must pack our gear
We wont have to say ‘good bye’
Instead we say ‘see you next year’
So many destinations
And marvelous sights to see
Are waiting the whole world over
Lets go there with KSC!

‘My Favorite Things’ at Kids Sea Camp


Eldridge Family

Turtles eating coral and groupers hanging out with me,
Octopus gliding through the night that I barely see,
Meeting new people who go diving with me.
(If you like pina coladas)
These are a few of my favorite things.

When the ears hurt,
When the fish hide,
When the jellies sting.

I simply remember my favorite things... and then I don't feel, so bad.

Pretty Lilly

P- pretty

She is so witty
I asked her to marry me
And she said maybe

The Philippines poems

2017 Poems from Kids Sea Camp Philippines

Here are the poems from the summer weeks of Kids Sea Camp in the Philippines in 2017. Kids Sea Camp hosts a poetry presentations every Friday night at the closing celebration.

Dive it off

By the Geall family

I wake up at 6, to make sure I don’t miss,

my dive boat mmm, my dive boat mmm.

They may think I’m crazy, well they ain’t wrong baby,

crazy for Kids Sea Camp mmm, crazy for Kids Sea Camp.

So I keep diving can’t stop, won’t stop diving.

It’s like I got the ocean in my mind, saying it’s gonna be alright, cause the fish are gonna

swim, swim, swim, swim, swim, swim,

and the turtles are gonna flap, flap, flap, flap, flap, flap.

Yeah I’m just gonna — dive, dive, dive, dive, dive

I’m diving on my own diving, on my own got my friends here,

so I not alone, so I’m not alone, 

that’s what they don’t know, mmm, and that’s they know mmm

(Chorus) I dive it off, I dive it off, I dive it off, I dive it off

Hey, Hey, Hey just think while  you’ve been getting down and out,

about the Lionfish and the dirty, dirty crown of thrones of this world

You could’ve been getting down to 40 feet.

My old friend brought her new dive gear she’s like “Oh My Gosh”

I’m just gonna dive to the fella over there with the really good hair,

won’t you come on over now and we can dive, dive, dive.

(Chorus) I dive it off, I dive it off, I dive it off, I dive it off


 

Palau Poems

Palau poems from the Kids Sea Camp week 

Here are the poems from the Kids Sea Camp week. Kids Sea Camp has a poetry presentation every Friday night at the closing celebration.

Out of the blue

The Baylee Adair family

Out of the blue

Into the ocean

All so brand-new

Into more blue

Under the sea

Just me and you, feeling so free

Deeper into the ocean blue

To black to dark

Nothing here for me and you.

Then gliding through the blue, a Manta!

So real and so true, a Manta!

Now I’m here

Just me and you

Under the sea in the ocean blue.


Good night Palau

The McClure family 

Goodnight Palau with your beautiful sea,

Goodnight to the divers, that’s you and that’s me.

Goodnight Milky Way with your white mud and day,

Goodnight to yet another wonderful day.

Goodnight little jellies in Jellyfish lake,

Goodnight birthday kids and chocolate cake.

Goodnight Blue Corner and the late flying there,

Goodnight to the sharks, and walls, oh so fair!

Goodnight Ulong Channel, away we all go!

Goodnight simple life, with its ebb and it’s flow.

Goodnight sing mermaids and your underwater flips,

Goodnight to our new friends — until our next trip.

Goodnight Sam’s, Frazier, Margo and Tom,

This trip to Palau has truly been the bomb.


Kids Sea Camp isn’t one color it’s a rainbow

The Sarin family
There’s red,
On the diver flag and fingernails.
On the roofs of boats, sunburnt kids,
Even on adults toes.
What’s here that’s blue?Every shade of blue in every drop of sea,
Curtains, bedspreads, sam’s boat tops.
Pools and fins and so much more!
Now the orange we shall explore!Orange clownfish and coral,
The pool barrier, if you go lighter.
There’s yellow to see,
sunshine and sand and a nudibranch baby.
Raisin cake we devour,
And straw baskets we wear,
It’s also green that’s filling the air!Green means nitrox and mangroves, grass mangroves
Grass necklaces and mats.
Mandarin fish,
Jellyfish Lake and turtles galore,
Now black that’s that.There are wetsuits and mantas and all sorts of gear,
And silver zippers, sharks and dolphins, and tanks.
And lastly, there’s gold in the hearts of everyone here.

Kids Sea Camp isn’t one color it’s a rainbow.


Finding our Scuba Sensei

The Quast & Jones family  ( write about finding their scuba sensei in Palau.)

There once was a gray shark for Nantucket

Some Mandarin fish in a bucket,

Nudibranchs here, there and everywhere,
Giant sumo wrestler clans that bit me in the derriere.
Half moon, quarter moon, rastaman jellies,
Fourth of July feast that filled my belly.
You see we are here in Palau,
Where the best time to here is “right” now.
With all our friends from Kids Sea camp,
And our Scuba sensei Margo who is a true Sea camp Champ.
And though our time here is running down,
We are quite sure will be back in town. 

Dreaming of fish

By The Abad Santos family (The Santos family have been to over six family weeks with Kids Sea Camp. They dream of fish every year.)

“I dream of fish”
I dream of fish that all swam by.
Of jacks and my napoleon wrasmer,
Of spiny urchins and anemones of giant clams and squid and stingless jellies.But the sharks came out at night,
How I dreamed that they would eat me,
But I soon learned they were nice,
]And they all became my friends.One more dive, another day another destiny,
another chance to test my buoyancy.
One more dive, another day at Kid Sea Camp
Oh, it’s the best,
I’m afraid it couldn’t lastOne more dive with Margo, Frazier Sven oh what a team,
With JC and Leon, oh what a dream.
One day more,
One more swim,
One more dive!

Bonaire Poems

Poems from the Kids Sea Camp weeks at Buddy Dive Resort 

2017

Poems from the Kids Sea Camp weeks at Buddy Dive Resort on the island of Bonaire. Kids Sea Camp always has a poetry presentation on Friday on the closing celebration.

By Burkhard family

Five times to Bonaire we have been.

Yet much still remains to be seen

What critters will make an appearance?

Same place, new experience,

Too bad home isn’t quite this marine.

It’s great to be back in Bonaire,

Where the weather’s beyond compare,

except when it rained

My parents, quite strained

without wetsuits, they were diving quite bare.

Jimmy was my instructor this week.

Where Duncan and I worked on technique,

We’d go into the waters,

And play like two others

Poor Jimmy put up without check.

The nursery trees needed cleaning,

So my folks were closely competing.

80 minutes really?

That’s awfully silly!

But that tree really was tonight and gleaming.

So many new friends we have found,

with stories that truly astound.

We really feel blessed,

They’re surely be missed.

We hope that we see them around.


An Ode’ to the Jellyfish

By David and David’s brother

The night, so full of beauty,

and uncommon sites.

PAIN, so excruciating, beyond belief, thank the Lord of bubbles.

To rescue, comes the Hero of the night, her Vinegar, so sweat.

Dear Lars, he cares, but he aged 10 years.

Mean nurse, and feral cats, on the way to wellness.

Needed comic relief . . . toffee banana mix.

With Woody and the sandwich maker, there would be no dessert this day.

For now, we have tattoos, this will prove that night forever.


By Unknown author

Here we are at Buddy Dive

Kids Sea Camp is like a beehive.

Kids buzzing around instructors flowers,

getting nurtured for hours and hours,

with the sweet nectar of diving fun,

and skills under Bonaire sun.


T’was the night before Bonaire

By Blakey family

T’was the night before Bonaire,

energy in the house was high people scrambling to find staff needed to dive

Piles of equipment strew about with care,

But the excitement was high because we’d soon be there.

The Blakeys came to Bonaire,

drawn like Jellyfish to light,

To see old friends and enjoy scuba delight.

On the way to Bonaire Lilly’s car was highjacked,

But we’d need a whole poem to tell about that.

Lilly came to Bonaire to learn to instruct,

Stuart learned to rescue in case instruct was about. 

Lilly’s course was intense, so she chose to fuel up,

A bag of sour patch kids, Twizzlers, and smarties a must.

Now Lillia, Jenny, Zuella (with 3L’s) and Josh came to learn to instruct,

They all passed with honors — all skill, no luck.

This camp has two drivers — Margo and Tom,

With love and devotion Kids Sea Camp travels on.


Parents got some rest

By Chapman family

We came to Bonaire to swim, dive and enjoy the sun,

and along the way, we had a little fun.

Kids Sea Camp is the best of the best,

and from 8:30 to 3:30,

the parents got some “rest.”

The resort, the food, and the divemasters were on par;

and we will admit that we enjoyed the cocktails at the bar.

The kids liked the ice cream tasting like vanilla;

and you will definitely see the Chapman’s in Manilla!


Messy hair

By Kim and Danny

Messy hair in Bonaire, nobody gives a care.

Dive in the morning or night, Anytime you want is alright.

A treasure hunt for fish, nobody’s seen just yet.

Who’ll find it first? You’re my first bet.

No touching, kissing or hugging, great reef friends.

Unless its wacky Wednesday and a stonefish befriend.

Family and friends join to meet,

For night dives and shores dives at Buddy’s Reef.

Kids Sea Camp, A whole lot of fun.

Just listen to Tom and the song he’s sung.

Margo’s got an eye for the perfect shot,

Smile for the camera, give it all you’ve got!

New friends made, old rekindled.

Kids Sea Camp, most magical!


The reef with no name

By Jake Snyder

To the fabulous instructors of Sasy,

The best of all the Lassies.

I’ll miss you, Toni, without Julia I’ll be lonely.

And Flavia is oh so classy!

To the beautiful island of Klein,

sp special I wish you were mine.

The reef with No Name.

Is a name, oh so lame.

Change to Jake’s Reef — it’s so fine.


Let’s jump in!

By Myler Skler

Scuba tanks, regulator, sunset waves

squid are nice and they behave.

Dolphins, tarpon, scuba fins, turtles, flounder

LET’S JUMP IN!


Discover Scuba

By Levinsky family

In Bonaire we discovered scuba diving,

and it seems to be better than rock climbing,

The day we arrived the dolphins put on a show.

When we came to the donkey park,

the foolish donkeys were harassing us.

The buddy Dive staff team gave us lots of ice cream.

Soon are vacation will end,

But I will never forget Kids Sea Camp.


Facing Fear

By Peter Sam 
Deep, dark ocean.
You scare me.
I don’t like swimming in the sea.
I don’t like carbs or eels or fish.
To be home in my bed is what I wish.
Day 1,2,3,4 even 5.
I’m just trying to stay alive.
No matter how they plead and beg.
I won’t touch that water, not even with one leg!
On Day 6, the final day.
A spark springs out and I’m OK!
Snorkeling along without a car.
I’m finally a water-lover in Bonaire!

We are Family 
By Karen Binns-Loveman
Becoming part of the Kids Sea Camp family
(Chorus)
We are family.
I got all my dive buddies.
Kids Sea family.
Get up, everybody and dive.
Buddy Dive is cool as can be.
House reef just offshore with endless coral and fishes galore.
I ’m not telling any lie.Learning is extra fun, playing beneath the sun.
Seals and sassy make a splash
While juniors and teens have a bash.
We’re loving diving in Bonaire the most, Yeah.
(Chorus)
We are family.
I got all my dive buddies.
Kids Sea family.
Get up, everybody and dive.
Bonaire breeze and green sunset flashes,
Complete with flounders, puffers, eels, turtles, and octopi they all swim on by.All of the people around us to say,
Old friend and new,
Through Kids Sea Camp, we gather near,
We ‘re loving camp until we meet next year.
(Chorus, repeat twice)
We are family.
I got all my dive buddies.
Kids Sea family.

Get up, everybody and dive.


Lionfish
By Grant Kobes
Lionfish must die,
Into the pan, they will fry,

Oh, how fine is thy.


By unknown author
As the sea salty water flows,
I hear the musicians of the sea . . .
The drummer fish on percussion.
The brass is trumpet fish.
The starfish is the singer.
The yellowtail snapper snaps to the beat,

as the sergeant major leads the band.

Learning to Dive

By Steve Swanson 

To always keep us safe, we have to have the tools

We learn the names, we learn the terms, we all must learn the rules

Not just words to memorize, but procedures we must know

Then we take the giant stride to see the realm below

Descend into the ocean, a new world to be seen

Aliens right here on earth majestic & serene

We can fly with proper weights & air in our BC’s

Protect yourself, protect the reef & you can dive with ease

Then we take flight & we soar, above the canyons far below

And we begin to feel the freedom that the birds already know

The world is ours but to behold, we never touch a thing

The reason is to not harm, but it could bite or sting

Then as we get ready to ascend back from the depth

The safety stops at the top & never hold your breath

Once above the fantasy & all is said & done

We have learned to dive quite safely, but most of all we’ve learned it’s fun!


 By unknown author

Wow! This is our 6th Kids Sea Camp, the third in Bonaire,

So with all this experience I felt I should share

With all of the families who are new this year

That they should relax, there is nothing to fear.

All the hard work has already been done.

by Margo who wants our kids to be safe and have fun.

The dive shops, the rooms, the staff and the foods

Have been carefully checked to keep us in good moods.

Just let your kids learn, dive, swim, and play,

And enjoy the great place that we get to stay.

Be warned, that the kids develop bonds that are strong

And they will keep in touch even after they’re gone.

This year in November I found it had been decided

By Kids Sea Camp friends who through Facebook & email confided.

The decision was made that they would again meet

The 3rd week of July in the Bonairian heat.

So being the greatest parents alive

We agreed to return to Buddy Dive.

So parents each year be prepared to hear a plea

From your kids who want to go back to the sea.

And see all the new friends they have made

While diving and playing in the sun and shade.

It’s the great friends we have made that make us return again and again,

Thanks to Margo, Tom, Robbie, and Jen


Dr. Seuss’s Ode to Sea Camp

By  Andy Hopkins & Family

The sun it did shine, It was too hot to play

So they sat in the house on that hot sweaty day.

Sam sat there with Hunter, They sat there the two,

And they said how I wish I had something to do.

Too hot to go out. Too hot to play ball.

Too hot in Florida to do, Anything at all.

All they could do was to, sit, sit, sit

And they did not like it, Not one little bit.

Then something went “click”, Boy, we were thick!

We looked at each other, our fingers went snap

We looked at each other, our hands they did clap

That’s it!

Margo, you’re a champ, Let’s all go to Kids Sea Camp

Margo looked at us in our Minds-eye bubble

“I gave my advice and you know they’ll be trouble!

I know it is hot and the sun way too sunny

But we can have lots of good fun that is funny

I know some good games. You can play if you wish

And parents you can come dive with the fish”

When are we going, Mommy? When? When? When?

We did it before, Let’s do it again

Sam, Hunter, Let us be

We will try it, you will see

We will try it in Bonaire, We will try it anywhere

In the wind, In the rain, In the dark, with a cane

In a storm, Was that thunder?  Nah!

Thumbs down, Let’s dive under

And look at us all, Look at us know

We’ve had so much fun, we’re booked for Palau!

Well at least in our minds, We are ready to go

There’s just one small problem, The greenbacks, the dough!

So now we must wait, Fingers impatiently strumming

Until the next time the boys, Go gleefully running

Down the docks and into the Ocean

We’re here, we’re here, And this is always such fun.


 By Unterman Family

We started on the red eye to a destination called Bonaire

Unsure of what we’d find there or how our family would fare

Check in went smoothly & breakfast was divine

We were positively sure that our vacation would go just fine

With Jr open water we had Pepe & Martin at the helm

Mom & Dad on Harbour Lady has Scott & Natalie to show them the ocean realm

We worked on our set of scuba skills our buoyancy did improve

So soon we had the chance to experience the underwater thrills

Oh my what we found beneath the ocean’s surface

Puffers that  look like bulldogs, spotted drum’s as cute as pie

Trunkfish, scorpion fish, eels galore & alone seahorse we did spy

Our sunset cruise & jam session ended in our walk off the plank

Family dives & all our fun to Margo & Tom we must thank

Sadly all good thing must end & we say farewell to our Bonaire

Until we meet again we’ll see you all next year


Susan & Mitch

We came from places far & near

And brought our children we hold so dear

They studied & they learned & dove the depths

They laughed  & they played & snorkeled the reefs

By the end of the week, they left us in awe

Of what they learned & what they became

Those children we brought from far & near

Have forever been changed by this week at the same

Those children we hold so very very dear

Now need to return-same time next year                    


By Morgan Tappero

There once was a cat I named Urtle, Who really acted like a turtle,

He ran real slow,  So how would you know,

That Urtle wasn’t a turtle.

He learned his P’s & Q’s, And knew how to tie his shoes,

So how would you know, With Urtle so slow

That Urtle wasn’t a turtle, Urtle could jump so high,

He could almost touch the sky, He could be a flying monkey rat,

But who could imagine that? Urtle was a really a cat

Urtle was from Bonaire, He liked to use Conair

Kids Sea Camp was the best, With Urtle at the test

Other than the cats, I also liked the hats

You can’t forget the diving, Or how long it took arriving

Kids Sea Camp was the best, With Urtle at the test

Everything was great, I wasn’t even late

But the thing I liked the most, Was the flying monkey rat, 

The Cat               


By Tappero family

Diving skills put to the test!

A week so fun, no one wants to rest!

Thanks to Margo, Tom & Fraser (even without Rogest)

Kids Sea Camp Bonaire is simply the best!


The Olson’s (Tom, Gail, & Roger)

So Bonaire we came- Kids Sea Camp at last!

New skills, old friends, each day a blast.

The sea full of wonders- so much to learn

We help each other & have no concerns

Parrotfish, trunkfish, Charley & eels

Spotted drum reef squids, what’s nipping at my heels?

Angelfish, trumpet fish, flounder & chubs

Tube sponge, hermit crabs & gulls stealing grub

Thank –you Margo & Tom for this week to hold

In our hearts, all year-the stories will be told

May we return again; light the dive lamp

As we look forward to another Kids Sea Camp!


By Eliza Sallee

Wake up in the morning at 4:45

I’m shivering uncontrollably, I am still dead tired

Comb my hair; brush my teeth, then I am in a cab

I’m at the airport, in a plane on Delta airlines

One hour later & minutes in Atlanta, in Delta airlines

Watch Diary of a wimpy kid.

4 hours n’ six minutes I’m in Bonaire

I see a parrot fish, an angelfish, a squirrelfish

Some scorpion fish lobsters 2 turtles.

Some puffers, a tiny shark & a tarpon

I got stung by some jellyfish & got hit by fire coral

But when think pasta I begin to think Bonaire with the fish

But most importantly Kids Sea Camp with my Family


By Matt Parker

Take off the adrenaline rushes into you and the force of the plane gives you

To your seat as you leave the airport

As you step of the plane, feel the warm breeze whip through your hair

And drift across your face like a smooth hand

The memories of last year make you smile & happy that you are there

And if you are new, the ocean is blue

And there are lots & lots of things to do

From tubing to donkeys it’s the best

I can tell you now Kids Sea Camp beats the rest

As you arrive at Buddy Dive you think Wow what a fantastic place

The people are nice the diving is great

This is not a place you could hate

So come & relax sit down at the bar

Maybe have a smoothie or 2

This is a place your best friends should come too

As the days roll by slowly, you see many cool creatures

Sea turtles that glide across the ocean so smoothly & gracefully

There’s also barracuda they’re scary, won’t bite if you disturb them

They’ll hurt you without a fight

In Bonaire the assortment of fish is fantastic, from angelfish to parrotfish

You will be able to see everything in the clear warm water

As the days wind down & the week goes on everybody had lots of fun

But then the day comes, the most dreaded day of all. When people say goodbye

And the plane takes off as you remember one of the best dive weeks EVER


By Sciortino Family

On Tuesday the divers on the harbour Belle

Were given another great story to tell

While preparing to dock, some divers were sent

From the bow to the stern, so off they went

During the transition we all appalled

It seems that one diver did not look

And instead of the rail grabbed the boat hook

So into the water went both hook & diver

But I’m happy to report, both are survivors

To avoid embarrassing the diver, I should keep a tight lip

But you have all probably already guessed, it was Skip    


By Debra Shannon

Poets we are not but we still give it a try.

We did not come to Kids Sea Camp to stay dry.

We had just re-certified & Scott had never even tried.

We had a week off & wanted to dive.

Brian & I went off on a boat with lots & lots of gear to tote.

Scott went to class & learned to clear his mask.

We were so proud that he gave it a chance.

He learned all his skills & got certified.

We went to his graduation & did a high five.

Day dives & night dives, we saw lots of fish.

There was nothing more for which we would wish.

By the end of the week we were looking like pros.

We will be very sad to go.

We made so many new friends & there is always next year

So I guess we will be back with all of our gear.


Diving In

By Brian Clapp

Two worlds: one above, one below

Separated by what looks to be a clear sheet of glass.

Air: something we humans need to enter the world below.

We take a deep breath, jump in & exhale.

Slowly, we pass through the glass barrier, we sink into wonderment

Everything stands still, & we are welcomed into our other family

No, better! We are welcomed into a school of fish.

The coral waves at us as if to say “hello, how are you? Please look but don’t touch”

And if we are very lucky we are greeted by eel, turtle, ray, & even the elusive shark.

Now it’s time to come back to our other world.

We look up, take a breath, stop for safety, & then slowly

Push through the “ glass” & say “I’m okay, welcome me back!”      


Kids Sea Camp Bunch

By MacDonald Family

Here’s a story about a Padi lady, who was bringing up 2 little scuba divers

Both of them smelled like neoprene.. like their mother, the youngest 1 not even old enough to be a Sasy

Here’s the story of a rock n roller, who couldn’t live any further from the sea

He was a grown man from Danville, Illinois, jamming with his band boys, yes he was all alone

Until the one day when the diver met the rocker & they knew it was much more than a hunch

That this group would somehow dive together, that’s how they became the Kids Sea Bunch!

The Kids Sea Bunch, the Kids Sea Bunch, that’s the way they became the Kids Sea Bunch.


By Neal Seltz

When I enter the beautiful sea, and cool water hits warm me

What do I think about, I’ll tell thee, it’s that I really need to pee

If I could ask Neptune, King of the sea, a question to that high exalted potentate

“Exactly where do you pee?” And is a hurricanes sea surge rush, simply your attempt to flush

So when you see me emerge from the sea, holding tank & mask & fin

And smiling with a great big grin, you’ll never know if it’s cause a great fish I’d seen

Or is it because I’ve been pee in

Is it really so bad a task, compared to when fishes do it in front of my mask

And when your dive master wants you to have buoyancy

Is it so bad to get there after your pee

And isn’t relieving your bladder in the sea

Better than doing it on the ladder?

And are divers from Holland & France, I’m seeing the worst violators of this scene

And is that why their called “you’re a peeing?”


Roatan poems

2017 Poems from the Kids Sea Camp at Roatan

Here are the poems from the two summer weeks at Mayan Princess Dive Resort in Roatan during our Kids Sea Camp week. Kids Sea Camp always has a poetry presentation on Friday the closing celebration. 

Our favorite things (At Kids Sea Camp)

By the Head family

Jumping off dive boats, and finding sea turtle,

Seahorses, stingrays, wreck dives and big wall.

Sasying, night dives and seeing our friends,

These are a few of our favorite things

When the work calls, when the school bell rings,

When we’re cold and sad,

we simply look forward t the next Kids Sea Camp

and then we don’t feel so bad.

Liane says “Kids”

Andy says ” camp”

Brayon says ” Roatan”

Liane says “2017”

Kami says ” What do you see in a Kids Sea Camp, you can see a turtle, a stingray, a lobster and an eel.”


By Sawyer Lee

My first day I found some treasure with pleasure.

I became a PADI Seal with some thrill.

I sang some Karaoke and it was Okey Dokey.

I did a mission with all my gear.

And Mr. Patrick let me drive and steer. 

Finally, on the last day, it was hard to get out of bed,

but it was so much fun to have a monkey on my head!

Kids Sea Camp

monkeys, diving

together

make happiness.


By Kathy Cooper

In the land of Kids Sea Camp,

young and old come to play.

Around the world, they will travel,

diving oceans all day.

New friendships are made,

as the days pass by.

Fun and adventure lead as the rallying cry.

So sad are we that the trip has to end.

But just wait till next year and it all starts again.


Oceans connection

By Goldin family

Why are there so many songs about coral and what’s on the other side?

Coral is pretty and next to the deep blue and coral helps lobster to hide.

The reefs are old and some chose to preserve it.

They won’t last forever wait and see.

Someday we’ll fix it and we will enjoy it.

The divers, the friendship and me.

KSC

By the Martin family

K is for kind, which the whole Mayan Princess staff was.

I is for incredible dive sites.

D is for the great diving

S is for Seal team, which was super fun and fantastic.

S is for sunburn, which I got on my face.

E is for Edgard, who helped me become a better diver and made my week amazing.

A is for Amanda, who helped me along the way.

C is for Carlos, an awesome dive instructor from the teen boat.

A is for a week to remember forever.

M is for Margo, who made this whole week possible

P is for Patrick, who taught me to be a master seal.


Aaahh…

By Brenna Kaufman

Aaaahh. . .Vacation it’s what this mom needed.

The countdown started when the flights were booked,

headed out diving because we got the whole family hooked.

Roatan KSC with the whole family,

Summer fun under the sea.

Three dives a day on Maite.

Until she blew her engine.

No fear for all there’s plenty of room on Ariel to keep us all divin’

The captain kept a sayin’ he has a guarantee.

we will for sure see fish and coral on each dive under the sea.

The sun was hot and got us,

But Jared saved the day with magic juice to cure the burn,

not sure how we can repay.

And finally, I have to say I am a bit paranoid of swim-throughs

But Patrick scheduled another on a dive and I just forwarded my Alec through.

Sunburns, lost shirts, mouthpieces that hurt.

Dropping weights, misplaced flip-flops… because karaoke was great.

So many memories we have made, and old and new friend too.

Perhaps we’ll all meet up again

on another KSC along the ocean blue.


 

St. Lucia poems

Giving prose over Thanksgiving in St. Lucia 2017

Here are the poems from the Thanksgiving Kids Sea Camp on the island of St. Lucia at Anse Chastanet.

Da, Da, Da, Dan, Da, Da, Da, Dan, Da, Da

By Benoit, Nathalie, Vincent & Maelie

Hurry up, then wait

So hot, in the black wetsuit

Everything that you’re gonna learn now.

Close enough for you to see,

But you just can’t touch.

One breath at a time,

There’s no need to rush.

It’s just learning to dive,

And floating just right.

It’s gonna happen and it’s supposed to happen,

that we clear the mask just right,

One breath at a time.


Diving with you (parody of Shape of You)

By The Gerdts

The club isn’t the best place to find a diver.

So Kids Sea Camp is where I go . . . hmmm.

Me and my friends on the Lucky T with Garfield,

Talking fast and then we swim slow.

Come over and start up a conversation with just me,

And trust me I will give it a chance now,

Take my gear, stop, put my BC on the boat.

And then we start to dive, and now I’m swimmin’ like

Boy, you know I want your air

Your air compressed for someone like me,

Come on now, share your air please,

I may be crazy, don’t mind me

Say, boy, let’s not swim too much,

Grab on my tank and put that rescue to me,

Come on now, follow my lead.

Come, Come on now, follow my lead . . . hmmm.

I’m just loving diving with you,

We stay buoyant like good divers do.

Although my air is falling too,

I’m in love with diving.

And last night you were in my group,

And now my wetsuit smells like Ewwww

Everyday hunting lionfish with you.

I’m in love with diving

Oh-I- Oh-Oh-I -Oh -I

I’m in love with diving

Oh-I- Oh-Oh-I -Oh -I

I’m in love with diving

Oh-I- Oh-Oh-I -Oh -I

Surviving zombies diving with you

I’m in love with diving

Come on, be my buddy, come on.

Come on, with us Kenton, come on.

Come on, with us Davis, come on.

Come on, Danny divers, come on,

Come on, Kenton, come on.

Come on, Davis, come on.

Come on, with us Albert, come on.

Come on, with us Woody, come on.

Come on, Gigi & Jay, come on.

Come on, Heather & Mary, come on.

Come on, Felix & Denzel, come on.

Come on, Margo & Tom, come on.

Come on, everybody, come on.


K.S.C. camp lyrics

By the Johnson family

Young family, there’s no need to feel down

I said, young family, pick yourself off the ground

I said, young family, cause you’re in a new town

There’s no need to be unhappy

Young family, there’s a place you can go

I said, young family, when you’re unsure where to go

You can stay there, and I’m sure you will find

Many ways to have a good time

It’s fun to dive with K.S.C. camp It’s fun to dive with K.S.C. camp

They have everything for families to enjoy

You can hang out with all the fish

It’s fun to dive with K.S.C. camp

It’s fun to dive with K.S.C. camp

You can get some great dives, you can have a good meal

You can do whatever you feel

Young family, are you listening to me?

I said, young family, where do you want to go?

I said, young family, you can make real your dreams

But you got to know this one thing

No family does it all by themselves

I said, young family, put your pride on the shelf

And just go there, to the Kids Sea Camp

I’m sure they can help you today

It’s fun to dive with K.S.C. camp

It’s fun to dive with K.S.C. camp

They have everything for families to enjoy

You can hang out with all the sharks

It’s fun to dive with K.S.C. camp

It’s fun to dive with K.S.C. camp

You can get some great dives, you can have a good meal

You can do whatever you feel

Young family, I was once in your shoes

I said I was down and out with the dive blues

I felt no family cared if I were alive

I felt the whole world was so jive

That’s when someone came up to me

And said, young family, take a walk up the street

There’s a place there called the Kids Sea Camp

They can start you back on your way

It’s fun to dive with K.S.C. camp

It’s fun to dive with K.S.C. camp

They have everything for families to enjoy

You can hang out with all the turtles

K.S.C. camp . . . It’s fun to dive with K.S.C. camp

Young family, young family, there’s no need to feel down

Young family, young family, get yourself off the ground

K.S.C. camp you’ll find it at the K.S.C. camp

No family, no family does it all by themselves

Young family, young family, put your pride on the shelf

K.S.C. camp . . . just go to the K.S.C. camp Young family, young family, are you listening to me?

Young family, young family, where do you wanna go?

K.S.C. camp…you find in the K.S.C. camp…

No family, no family does it all by themselves

Young family, young family, put your pride on the shelf

K.S.C. camp…just go to the K.S.C. camp…

Young family, young family I was watching your shoes

Young family, young I was down with the blues


What an amazing night of poetry in St. Lucia

The St Lucia poetry night always held on the last night of the Kids Sea Camp week is normally a special night. But this week the St. Lucia poems seemed even more remarkable than normal. Maybe it was the gentle rain with the moon dancing in-between the clouds that brought our families prose and verve a little more to the surface. There was a little more energy and edge during the night.

As Dylan Thomas would say: No one went quietly into that good night. Old age should burn and rave at close of day; Rage, rage against the dying of the light.Though wise men at their end know dark is right because their words had forked no lightning they. Do not go gentle into that good night.
This poetry contest live up to the Thomas’ poem. A memorable night — a special night — that Margo and I will remember forever. Thank you all for putting so much effort into the evening.

First place: Teen Boat Dive Briefing

By Tyler Jenss

Today our dive will go sixty feet deep,

And forty-five minutes is the time to keep.

To get in the water, just do a big stride,

Then fill up your BC and wait for your guide.

When you get the Ok, you can start to go down,

And put in your regulator so that you don’t drown.

Watch for rocks and sand, because they can go fast,

And if you see an eel you may get harassed,

But if it starts coming towards you just give it a kick,

And keep an eye out for some slippery dick.

When you get two thumbs up, start to head to the surface,

But don’t go too fast ‘cause you’ll make Kenton nervous.

Swimming straight to the boat can lead to decapitation,

This would undoubtedly ruin your family vacation!

When you get to the ladder, go up one-at-a-time,

First take off your fins and then start to climb.

A bang from the boat means an issue atop,

So ascend at one-foot-per-second with no safety stop.

If you hear there’s a problem, don’t ask any questions,

Just go to the surface and then wait for directions.

Keep an eye on your air, and let it be known,

Seven hundred pounds is our caution zone.

If you run out of air, do not be upset,

And the number one rule is, try not to get wet!


First place

By Emma Svitil

When swimming around in the deep ocean blue,

I’ve found some thoughts that just come to you.

Granted some are silly, like my hot dog joke.
But others are profound and need to be written.

We’ve reached many epiphanies down there in the blue,

and now I’d like to share one of mine with you.

The first dive I went on I saw many a thing.

I saw corals, rocks, and some long-lost ring,

but the one thing I saw that really stood out…

Was none other than the trumpetfish with his long snout!

I remember him clearly as I swam through the arch.

He was silver and shiny and made my heart lurch!

Afterwards, as I swam on, thinking on this,

I realized with me, there was something amiss.

See I’ve always thought I was different and special,

much like this fish, I was shiny and precious.

But I suddenly realized that no one else cared.

They didn’t remember that trumpet fish there.

No one on a dive boat says “Did you see that?”

About the poor trumpet fish and others like that.

All everyone cares about is rarity and size.

But they don’t believe unless they see it with their eyes.

I think some of us believe we are fish in the pack.

We’re trout’s and the guppies and the goldfish snacks.

We’re here for a while, we swim around, float.

Then we get eaten or kidnapped or both!

And we think no one cares, we think no one has noticed.

We see the divers swim on, and we see them demote us.

They turn us into another object, a thing.

A backdrop for all that they want to be seeing.

And maybe it’s true.  Maybe we are just some fish.

But that’s not important, what’s important is this:

I will never forget that one trumpet fish.

That fish was so special, he couldn’t be missed.

At least by me, see, that’s where it counts.

I can travel the world; I can make my rounds,

 But I won’t forget him and that’s where its true

That that is how somebody feels about you.

For most of the divers, you may not be special.

They’ll swim on by, and then they’ll just board the vessel.

They’ll leave and forget and move on to the next. But for one person, just maybe, they’ll stay and they’ll rest.

They’ll take all the pictures; they’ll put you in logs.

They’ll remember there depth and the exact time and all.

Or the things that happened the moment they saw you

That one special fish

The best of all You.


60’s Diving Medley: (sung to the tunes of Nat King Cole’s “Love” and The Weavers “Lion Sleeps Tonight”)

By the Molkentin Family

S: is the Sea that we explore.
C: keeps us Coming back for more and more
U: is the Underwater life galore
B:  The Bubbles
And A: we sure Adore. Kids Sea Camp.

Divin’ trips with kids sea camp are just the best
They fulfill our family’s diving quests.

Kids sea camp’s shown us  new spots on the map
Utila, Bonaire,  Palau
The Grenadines, St. Lucia and Yap
Come, along and join the family fun
Kids dive safe
Under Margo’s thumb

Grab your mask, your fins.
Strap on your BCD
See the peacock flounders, trumpetfish
And anemone

Dive KSC from dawn to dusk each day
Night Dive with the  needlefish that dot the bay

We  love the fringing coral
And the fish
That this trip would never end
Is our only wish…Because

We came to dive. We came to dive. We came to dive. We came to dive
We came to dive. We came to dive. We came to dive. We came to dive
Ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh ooh, ooh,  We came to dive

St. Lucia is a small sovereign island
in the East Car rib Be a Sea
Land of cultural history, gracious, smiling people
The Pitons and  Anse Chastanet

Anse Chastanet offers sanctuary, a safety haven
For turtles, fish, and ray
St, Lucians protect and honor
their living treasures
So ecology will stay

We came to dive. We came to dive. We came to dive. We came to dive
We came to dive. We came to dive. We came to dive. We came to dive
Ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh ooh, ooh,  We came to dive

We saw glass eyed  snapper and parrotfish
And yellow headed wrasse.
spiny lobster, big crusty crabs
And spotted eels in the grass.

Our kids’ favorite fish swam along the rocks
It was called the slippery dick
The green sea turtle and octopus
Were my own most favorite picks!

We came to dive. We came to dive. We came to dive. We came to dive
We came to dive. We came to dive. We came to dive. We came to dive
Ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh ooh, ooh,  We came to dive

The ca- ta- Marran took us all on a voyage
To see the sunset and bats fly
A little champagne, appetizers, and dancing
We wish we could have stayed all night

 We learned herbal healing

rode bikes through the Jungle
Sampled chocolate and played in the sand
Dining right next to the beach was cool
As was listening to the steel drum band

We came to dive. We came to dive. We came to dive. We came to dive
We came to dive. We came to dive. We came to dive. We came to dive
Ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh ooh, ooh,  We came to dive

Thanks, Kids Sea Camp
Thanks, Scuba St. Lucia
This Thanksgiving week was really cool
Anse Chastanet is a special place
A real Caribbean jewel.

We came to dive. We came to dive. We came to dive. We came to dive
We came to dive. We came to dive. We came to dive. We came to dive
Ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh ooh, ooh,  We came to dive


Kids Sea Camp (sung to the tune of theme song for the Spiderman cartoon)

By Peter Hays

Kids Sea Camp

Kids Sea Camp

Loves to get their divers damp

Aquatic life of every size

Swimming by before their eyes

Look out- here comes Kids Sea Camp!

Can they dive?

Take it from me,

They’ve been diving in every sea

Can they swim through the waves?

Dude, these divers are really brave!

Look there- there goes Kids Sea Camp!

In the darkness of night

Their dive lights will shine

With the beams of their lights,

The reef life they will find.

Kids Sea Camp

Kids Sea Camp

International Kids Sea Camp

Everywhere they explore

Every diver comes back for more

Let’s go- diving with Kids Sea Camp!

With Margo and Tom and their crew

Kids Sea Camp explores the deep blue

With each dive, there’s something new

If you want to get wet,

Your very best bet,

Is to dive into Kids Sea Camp!


The Non-Divers Experience

By Jessica Hart, Bailey Lavinsky, and Susan Hultgren

Kids Sea Camp news: A recount request sent to the KSC poetry panel 

We’re so lazy,

We don’t want to go.

We’re on vacation,

Leave us a-alone.

We’re so lazy,

Can’t you see we’re slow?

We heard it’s fun, we still don’t want to go.

Don’t go chasing waterfalls,

Stick to the oceans and beaches that you’re used to.

We know you’re gonna hike it yourself or nothing at all,

But we got two babies to haul.

Bike, bike baby

Jungle bike, bike baby

Jungle bike, bike baby

Jungle bike, bike baby

Jungle!

Can’t climb this!

Look, man, we can’t climb this.

These killer steps up and back down, No!

We can’t climb this!

Ring the shuttle. Bring it down.

It’s breakfast time!

We sleep in late, got nothing in our day.

That’s what divers say hmm-mmm,

That’s what divers say hmm-mmm,

We went to a mud bath,

But could find no mud- uh-uh! Uh-uh!

At least that’s what divers say (hmm)

That’s what divers say (hmm)


By Emma Przybylo and Audrey Sarin

Now we’re all here, the whole family, all 8

Although 1 of us was a little bit late

She was detained by the wind and snow

But finally was allowed to go

We’ve all been doing our own special thing

For Raman that meant playing the guitar so Tom could sing

The kids were playing volleyball, paddle boarding and such

And Nani was relaxing, not doing too much

Sunita’s favorite part was the chocolate tasting

Tina talked about saving the ocean and not wasting

Phil’s gotten better, so now he’s around

So now all 8 are here laughing, one happy sound

Thank you Kids Sea Camp,

We’ve had so much fun

Nani, we’re ready for another one!


By Rainer Jenss 

Thanksgiving was upon us,

To give our spirits a lift.

There really is no question,

Kids Sea Camp is a gift.

 A friend is many people

Throughout our given life.

Some always seem to top the list,

And that’s Rob and his wife.

But there are many others,

The ones we met right here.

Maybe if we’re lucky.

We’ll meet up with them next year. 

Thanksgiving this year was special,

It gave me time to think;

How special Kids Sea Camp really is,

Even though it went by in a blink!


 By Zachary Nathanson

I love octopi

They are really great

They are super smart

And they can open jars

This poem is ending

So remember this!


By Gahan Family

The velvet ocean, the emerald peak

Kid Sea Camp arrives, but Margo can’t speak!

We carried on, thanks to Tom

And learned a lot- we didn’t stop!

Ear infections won’t get us down

We will equalize before we leave this town

Under the sea, fish will be

Fish will be, right next to me

Eels around, I swim around

No sharks in sight, all is good tonight.

Biking the mountain above the sea,

Oh no! I fell down- blood I see!

And now the week is gone-

Just when we learned how to put our wetsuits on.

Goodbye, for now, we will meet again,

The sun is down, I’m leaving this town.


 By Montgomery,  Thorsten and Remington Hart

I am a coral in the deep blue sea,

Everyone wants to come see me!

I am big, white and awesome,

Come see me so we can have some fun!

I am an octopus swimming in the sea,

Divers are always looking for me!

There is no place I’d rather be,

But hiding in a reed instead of a tree!

I am the waves crashing in,

Everybody wants to hop in!

Carrying shells and sand, with every crash,

High tide, low tide, it won’t be my last!

Diving vacations go so fast!


By Lilly Blakey

Climb aboard the Lucky T and come explore the ocean with me

60 foot below you’ll see Stuart is lower than he should be

Jim’s at the surface with no air

Asa’s flailing with no care

Trey’s fast asleep on the boat

Jim’s barely got enough air to float

Susan is as cold as can be

And they all wish they could dive like me.

 

Dominica Poems

From Fort Young Hotel on the island of Dominica 2017

Here’s are the poems from the families from the Kids Sea Camp in Dominica.

Ryan’s song

By Ryan White

Tom is the bomb,

Kids Sea Camp is best

Ryan is calm,

when he is with Tom.

So come to Kids Sea Camp and friends will abound.


Waitukubuli

By Lisa White

Waitukubuli, how you move me

Speak unto her English, French or Caribe.

Her salty breeze

Traveling down I soar,

Privates hidden love,

Nine depths of earth’s core,

Arise, Arise, I must wake!

My air supply is running low,

Time now is my foe.

Waitukubuli, living grace.


First KSC

By The Erkart Family

Our first Kids Sea Camp,

was so much fun.

We traveled to Dominica

to scuba with our son.

Mrs. Margo and Mr. Tom,

organized the dives,

and  created the adventure,

that changed our lives.

The staff was amazing,

and the food was great, 

together among our new friends,

for the next Sea Camp I cannot wait!


By unknown

Sponges eels rays trunkfish,

undersea another world,

If you clear your mask!


By unknown

Kids Sea Camp was great!

The last dive, we saw a turtle.

But no camera!


By unknown

I’m gonna tell ya story,

and it ain’t no jive!

About Dominica,

and learning to dive!

We learn from the sea,

But of the people too!

We travel to beautiful places,

and islands that are new!

I enjoyed our week of discovery,

Both on the land and on the sea!

Travel is education,

and learning with Kids Sea Camp is the key!

Wakatobi poems 2017

Poems from the Kids Sea Camp at Wakatobi

Here are poems from the 2017 Kids Sea Camp week from the week at Wakatobi resort. 

(Sung to “My Favorite Things”)

Unknown author

Black-banded sea kraits and large tiger cowries.

Leaf fish and stonefish that scoot cross the floor seas.

Whip coral.
Gobis and yellow jawfish smiles for all,
These creatures dive traveled the miles,
Schooling black snapper and Chromis wearing jammies,
Bubble coral shrimp and anemone fish families,
Hawksbills and spotted rays that fly if, on wings, these are a few of my favorite things,
When the dive ends,
when its surface time,
when we need a break,
I can’t wait to go back to the restaurant resort to eat what the staff has baked,
Pancit and dragon fruit and fresh tuna poke,
Josh Comay’s photo tips,
our, kids singing karaoke,
sarong tying lessons and a village tour stop,
Kids Sea Camp, Wakatobi really does rock.
So if you’re thinking about a family trip and really want to dive,

Ask Margo and Tom about Wakatobi resort for an adventure to come alive.


By Joe Abad Santos
When you go diving in Wakatobi many feet below.
Did you check your dive tank and your buoyancy?
Get your dive mask so you can see?
We’ve got the best dive crew and made some new friends,
what else would I need?
Did you see the cool cuttlefish,
that ever elusive cuttlefish,
Diving in Wakatobi
We went exploring the reefs every day, 
3 boats dive per day,
Tiger flatworms nudibranchs, spotted rays,
nemo clownfish and a shark that swam away
So many creatures so weird and so cool,
what else did you see?
Did you see that seahorse, 
that tiny pygmy seahorse diving in Wakatobi?
Here at Kids Sea Camp, 
kids learn how to dive with friends from near and far.
Adventures and great food are guaranteed.
Margo and Tom in-charge of all that you’ll need.
You won’t have any worries,
you will have a blast,
Oh, when can I come back?
To the best diving for trip adventures of a lifetime.
Diving at Kids Sea Camp!

Winding through the house reef like a black and white snake,
On the house’s own reef I saw orangutan crab, a crocodile fish, and gobies doing the dab.

Symbiosis is going on with gobi fish and their shrimps, pufferfish, and cleaners, anemone and clownfish,
Brad’s gonna try to take our picture,
Jesse’s got the right light, snapping all our memories, making our smiles bright.(Chorus)
