Registrations begin Monday for Lee County Parks & Rec Summer Camp
Registration starts at 7 a.m., Monday, Feb. 22, for Lee County Parks & Recreation Summer Camp, which is expected to fill quickly with limited capacity.
All Lee County Parks & Recreation summer camp programs will be following Centers for Disease Control guidelines. Each camp will operate under a ratio of nine campers to one staff member for each group and adhere to 6-foot social distancing. Campers will remain on-site for the duration of each day.
Each site will be disinfected and cleaned frequently and routinely throughout the day.
Summer camp runs for five weeks – from June 28 through July 30. Camp is offered on a weekly basis. The price for each week is $75 per participant.
Parents are encouraged to sign up early — each year the allotted spaces at Wa-Ke Hatchee Recreation Center, Lakes Regional Park and Estero Recreation Center fill up well before school ends. Camp registration is ongoing as long as space is available.
Here’s a tip from the registration desk: If you plan to register for camp at one of the four large recreation centers, you need to obtain a membership first. This applies to the centers at Wa-Ke Hatchee, Estero, North Fort Myers or Veterans Park in Lehigh Acres. Second tip: You need to have a household account at www.webtrac.leegov.com if you want to register online.
All campers will receive a specially designed Lee County Parks & Recreation T-shirt. Camp sites will participate in countywide initiatives, such as service learning projects, fitness and wellness programs, and National Park and Recreation Month.
