FORT MYERS, Fla. — Mark your calendar! Registration for Lee County Parks and Recreation summer camp starts at 7 a.m. Monday, Feb. 22, and is expected to fill quickly.

All summer camp programs will follow CDC guidelines. Each camp will have no more than nine campers to one staff member in 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 to July 30. Camp is offered on a weekly basis. The price for each week is $75 per child.

Parents are encouraged to sign up early. Each year the camps offered 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.

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. You also need to have a household account at to register online.

All campers will receive a Lee County Parks and Recreation t-shirt. Campsites will participate in countywide initiatives, such as service-learning projects, fitness and wellness programs, and National Park and Recreation Month.
