Epic Beach

10,000 Island Ladies Camping Trip
February 17-19, 2024

Event Highlights

Did someone say, “Epic Beach Adventure?” Ends of the Earth Adventures presents our camping event for highschool aged Ladies. We are so excited to return back to our 2022 location in the beautiful and remote 10,000 islands. The 10,000 Islands are a large island chain and Mangrove cluster that is located South of Naples / Everglades City, Florida. Much of the 10,000 Islands are part of the Ten Thousand Islands National Wildlife Refuge.  We will be staying on Pavilion Key and our camp site will be on the North side of the island. We recently learned, up to 300 Indians lived on the island years ago and pieces of Indian pottery can be found just laying on the beach (just don’t take it home).

On this trip, Ends of the Earth Adventures will be taking Highschool students with leadership potential (Mom’s are invited also) on a beautiful & remote, 3-day, 2-night camping and beach adventure.  Once on Pavilion Key, there is no way to return to the mainland except for emergencies. Each day we will spend time shelling, kayaking, sharing cooking responsibilities and have times of devotions and worship. 

This event will not cover your fishing licenses.  Be sure to read our “The Nitty Gritty” section below for more details about your fishing licenses, what can be expected, what to pack, etc.

Tour ItineRary

yes we'll have Coffee

Day 1, we will meet in Fort Myers at New International at 7:30am (2701 Cleveland Ave, Fort Myers, FL). We will do an equipment check and pack everything into your (yours to keep) drybag. From there, we will drive to Everglades City (Chokoloskee Island) where you will be shuttled by boat offshore to Pavilion Key. There you will help set up your camp and enjoy everything the 10,000 Islands has to offer. We will eat lunch and dinner on the island. In the evenings, we will have a camp fire and dive into the Word of God together.

Day 2 will be a full day of fun. We will eat Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner out on the island.  There will be plenty of structured “free-time” in the schedule where you can spend time kayaking, looking at shells and Indian pottery, walking the beach or just taking in the sun on a beach chair.  In the evening, there will be a camp fire and time in the Word of God as we watch the sunset.

Day 3, we will have time to fish and enjoy the island. Around lunch time, we will pack up camp and head back to Everglades City. We will stop at a local gas station for snacks and drinks (bring some cash) before hitting the road. We will drive everyone back to Fort Myers, arriving before dinner.  Students can notify parents of our estimated time of arrival when we leave Everglades City.
