If you haven’t already heard, Nocatee offers Summer Day Camps to both residents and non-residents! Last Friday capped the end of the 2013 summer camp sessions that included three uniquely themed weeks of fun! This year’s offering of “Sports Camp,” “Performing Arts Camp” and “Craft & Nature Camp” resulted in a sold-out summer of camp sessions and the highest attendance rate yet! Day camps ran from June 10th until July 26th, and kids of all ages enjoyed Nocatee’s nature trails, waterpark, amenities and so much more.
Boom Science, GTM Nature Reserve, Coastal Kicks Soccer and Mad Cowford Improv are just a few of the local organizations that participated in the various camps. Along with fun outdoor/indoor games and activities, campers enjoyed the cool waters of the various pools, slides and lazy rivers all inside the resort-style community amenity, Splash Water Park.

The new church site will be located at the northeast corner of Valley Ridge Blvd and Cross Town Drive. First Baptist expects the project to be completed by 2015. The Church is planning for an auditorium, education space, church offices and sports facilities.

Scott Helps Cut Ribbon On New Advanced Disposal Headquarters[Originally published by WJCT]
Governor Rick Scott joined St. Johns County officials on Monday to cut the ribbon on the new corporate headquarters for Advanced Disposal in Nocatee. The company is expanding and will eventually bring an additional 85 jobs to the area.
Advanced Disposal also considered downtown Jacksonville, Atlanta, Milwaukee and Charlotte as relocation sites.
Chairman and CEO Charlie Appleby says the Nocatee location was a great fit for the needs of the company.
Gov. Scott says the company remaining in northeast Florida shows the state continues to be a good place to grow business.
Advanced Disposal recently acquired two other waste services companies, making it the largest privately-owned environmental services provider in the country. It has over three million residential and commercial customers in 20 states and the Bahamas.
