Summer is still two months away—but the time to plan for summer camp is right now.

As of right now, Collier County is the only county that has their camp registration up and running.

You can go to the main page and click on the tab —”Guide to online registration.”

If you do register and pay to sign up for summer camp you’ll get a refund if anything changes.

In Lee County—they said they are not opening registration yet. Right now all the camp sign-ups are listed as unavailable.

And in Cape Coral—their registration isn’t open until May 1, but they are taking camp counselor applications.

This is the page to apply—right now they need to fill 28 spots.

Registration for Charlotte County summer camps can be found here.

Registration for Fort Myers Summer Camps can be found here.

They did say if social distancing is still enforced this summer— they will need to split all groups up into 10 rather than 20. Which means they will need to hire twice as many counselors.

As of right now, they are waiting on health officials to make that call.
