Live summer at Camana Bay, where the season means movies, eating out, outdoor fun, summer camps and having a great time.
The month kicks off with a special Constitution Day Moonlight & Movies, where families can bring their picnic blankets and enjoy the film, Disney’s Moana. The Moonlight & Movies summer series will then continue on July 10, featuring a different family favourite every Tuesday under the stars.
Summer camps are also back, with options available for every age group and for everyone’s interest. The Multi-Sport Camp is back for its eighth year, offering aspiring athletes coaching in volleyball, basketball, tennis, swimming and football. Young athletes who have dreams of playing in the NBA also have the opportunity to sign up for the 10th Annual Camana Bay Basketball Camp, where they will learn how to hone their skills as well as meet and play with a professional basketball player from the NBA.
If sports aren’t your style, there are camps available for the junior chefs in your life at Bon Vivant Kitchen Studio with the Budding Chef Summer Culinary Camps and the Shutterbugs Camp for the creative photographers who want to learn the art of photography from the professionals at Picture This Studios. If your children are more of the creative type then experience the Cayman Music School Camp which will feature music, singing, dance, drama, arts and crafts, yoga and karaoke.
If you are looking for things to do in Grand Cayman this summer, it’s never been easier to live summer than with Camana Bay!
