MICF awards summer camps

ADVERTISEMENT

The Marine Industry Cares Foundation (MICF awarded 27 free weeks of summer camp to Broward County children ages 7-14. The children were asked to shared their expression of “Why I Love the Ocean” and so many submitted winning entries that MICF nearly doubled its awards, from 15 to 27. Winning entries included paintings, poetry, photography, and more – even a giant replica of a Manta Ray made from paper mache.


“We were thrilled to see how many children put a lot of effort into this contest to pursue the opportunity of winning a week to submerse themselves in ocean-related summer camp fun,” said MICF Board of Directors’ Chairman and Triton Publisher David Reed. “Our members, who work in and run maritime businesses, know how important our children are to the continued success and future of our industry.These camps will provide dedicated marine experiences for the children, which we believe will continue to propel their love of the ocean.”


The winners have each been provided a one-week scholarship for a summer camp of their choice at one of three camps: Museum of Discovery & Science’s Ocean Explorers Camp; International Game Fishing Association (IGFA Fishing Camp; or Gulfstream Sailing Club’s Camp at Sailor’s Point in Hollywood.
