LEE COUNTY, Fla.  — Lee County has announced the start of summer camp registration.

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.

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 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. The camp is offered weekly.

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.

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.

All campers will receive a specially designed Lee County Parks & Recreation t-shirt.

Campsites will participate in countywide initiatives, such as service-learning projects, fitness and wellness programs, and National Park and Recreation Month.
