Looking for a summertime adventure for your kids?

The River Pointe Pirate Camp is a unique option. The camp is open to children from six to fourteen.

In the morning, Captain Jos teaches children about golf. In the afternoon, the young pirates board "the Lost Coconut", a 30-foot pirate ship, and set course on the Flint River for adventure.

Organizers say the children will remember the camp for the rest of their lives, especially the pirate ship.

"It's built on Styrofoam and built of mostly recycled wood. It's intended for fun. It's got a plank we can jump off from and it has a water balloon sling shot," said Captain Jos Bekkers.

 Pirate camp is underway now. Camps continue through July 26th.
