We wish her all the best as she heads to Marquette University in Milwaukee, Wisconsin this fall to pursue a degree in Exercise Science in the Direct Entry Doctorate of Physical Therapy Program.

Summer Camp Series Wrap-Up

We had our last summer camp day on July 27 – Thank you to our volunteers and coaches who made this year’s youth summer camp series a success.

July 27 water-skiers

Hobe Lake is committed to promoting youth involvement in waterskiing and we’re excited to see new south Florida kids on the water. Some highlights of our summer camps were every new skier learning a deep water start, introducing kids to the slalom course… and lots of swimming and playing in the water. 

Stay tuned for more kids’ events in the future!
