Registration has started for the 2017 summer camps at Lee County Parks & Recreation. These camps draw thousands of youngsters throughout the region to programs, outings and activities at traditional camps, teen camps and specialty camps.


Each year, the spots at Estero Recreation Center, Wa-Ke Hatchee, and Lakes Regional Park fill up before school is out. Summer camp runs eight weeks from June 5 through July 28.


If you plan to register for camp at one of the four major recreation centers, you need to obtain a facility membership first.


Parents interested in swimming lessons also can register now. Those lessons and other summer aquatics programs are available at the county’s four year-round community pools located in San Carlos Park, Lehigh Acres, North Fort Myers, and Pine Island.
