Saturday July 19th,

7:30 am we will meet in hotel lobby, and leave no later than 7:45 am to go to the Clearwater Aquarium. There the children will spend an entire day at a special “CAMP DAY” created exclusively for the AVRF children by the Clearwater, Aquarium. There will be snorkeling, lunch and learning a lot about life at the aquarium and all the animals living there.

The campers will need a mask and snorkel, closed toe water shoes, towels, and bathing suits. The AVRF will provide the masks and snorkels for the children. We will also provide sunscreens. Each child must bring closed toe water shoes, a towel and a bathing suit for your “camp day” at the Clearwater Aquarium. This is mandatory. Thank you!

You will also spend time with “Nicholas the Dolphin.” What fun! At 4:00 pm all the children will return to the La Quinta and prepare for a special evening of food and fun. Dinner will be served from 6:00 pm sharp compliments of AVRF. At 7:00pm there will be a special show featuring “Those Tricky Dogs.” A special dog act is being brought in by the AVRF for our children to enjoy. There will be 6 little doggies doing their thing. It will be such fun spending time with these dogs and their circus act. There will also be a raffle with great prizes and a silent auction, so come prepared!

Sunday July 21st

Following breakfast, we will be driving to Florida’s beautiful “Sand Key Beach” where we will be holding our AVRF vitiligo swim a thon to raise vitiligo awareness. We will be handing out brochures defining vitiligo to the public. Lunch will be provided by the AVRF. I will be sending out a sponsor form to each of our registered attendees. The AVRF will gift a prize to the child who raises the most money in sponsorship.
