Registration is open for Marine Science camps at Mound House and Newton Beach Park to be held the weeks of July 11 to 15 and July 18 to 22.
Operated by “Super Science and Amazing Art” from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Friday, three camp days each week will be at Mound House and two camp days will be at Newton Beach Park.
Campers will enjoy kayaking on the Estero Bay Aquatic Preserve from the Mound House launch and swimming in the Gulf at Newton Beach Park. They will also enjoy theme-oriented organized camp activities, outside games, and nature, history and museum exploration. Each camp week has room for a minimum of six and a maximum of 15 participants.
Calusa Kids will be the theme for the camp July 11-15. Campers will discover new plants and animals, use the state-of-the-art research lab, immerse themselves in local Calusa history and travel the Great Calusa Blueway Paddling Trail. Marine Beach Explorers will be the theme for the camp July 18-22. Featuring a curriculum written and designed by local marine biologists, campers will collect water samples, observe wildlife, and explore the habitats of fish and wildlife on kayaking adventures.
Cost is $250 per camper per week. Early drop off and late pickup may be possible based on instructor availability. Campers will need to bring snacks, lunches and water bottles each day in addition to towels and changes of clothes.
Special needs shelters require advance registration
Lee County has a special needs program that is available to all county residents at no cost. It provides shelter for those who live in a home and/or area that is not safe from storm surge or wind and have no other safe place to go. It also provides transportation to a shelter. Those who need this service must be registered prior to the onset of a storm.
