Former restaurant converted to summer camp, after school program

A location that formerly housed two different restaurants over the past couple years will play home to a new summer camp and after school program.

Ocala’s Best Summer Camp and After School Program has moved into the location at 3233 SE Maricamp Road, Ste. 605, which previously hosted the Cup ‘O The Irish and, more recently, Papa Pineapples.

After Papa Pineapples closed last year amidst the pandemic, the property sat vacant until it found its newest suitor.

Papa Pineapples was forced to close its doors less than a year after opening.

Now, Ocala’s Best hopes to bring new life into the former restaurant.

The organization’s website says they offer martial arts classes, tumbling, dance classes, games and crafts, as well as indoor activities and outdoor sports.

Earlier this year, a new Starbucks opened in Saddlebrook Plaza along Maricamp Road.
