You have found the page for Calusa Winter Camp Registration for December 2017 – January 2018 — fill your child’s winter break from school with fun, nature, science, and hands-on creative activities at Calusa Nature Center & Planetarium: four fun days offer lots of variety! Ages 6-14 (grades 1-9; minimum age is 6 years, and 13- and 14-year-olds are in the “Nature Camp Counselor in Training” program that runs parallel to Winter Camp*).  Calusa’s Camp is a unique active learning experience with our 105-acre wetlands outdoors and our learning centers engaging campers.  Active learning experiences with animals, fun nature investigations and more. Each day and week focuses on a different theme.

Calusa Winter Camp December 2017 enrollment information:

Calusa Winter Camp will be open 9 am – 4 pm for $35/day or 8 am – 4 pm for $40/day (more for non-members: become a member today!).  Member weekly rate (4 days) is $140/week ($175 for non-members).  After-care is available from 4 pm until 6 pm for $15/day in advance or $25/day at the door (because if we don’t know in advance, we have to arrange for someone to put in overtime). Please be prompt; penalties for pickup after 6 pm accrue at the rate of $5/(5 min).

What to Bring/wear: Please send a water bottle and a lunch with your camper each day. Children must dress for the outdoors in “play clothes,” as we will be outdoors exploring nature. All campers should bring a change of clothes and a water-safe pair of shoes: we will be occasionally exposed to wetlands, etc. Closed-toed shoes are a MUST. Hat, insect repellent and sunscreen are highly recommended.

Calusa Winter Camp is for participants from 6 to 14 years of age. All participants must have completed at least the first half-year of first grade upon registration. If your child is not yet in 1st grade, the Woodland Nature Montessori School runs a parallel camp for ages 3-6.

Enrollment applications are available at the Calusa Nature Center, or you may fill out the application below if you wish to register your student(s) online. Each participant will require a separate registration form fill, but choice of multiple camps may be made in that camper’s registration and payments may be made in one pass by setting the item quantities appropriately.

(Check below for our online application)

Keep that young learning brain in shape — supplement your child’s school break with outdoor activities, and fun science and nature programs!

*Counselor-in-Training program includes workshop-style activities to activate leadership potential and practical experience to help prepare the CIT for an eventual Junior Counselor role.

To register your child for camp, please choose the option(s) you want and use the button corresponding to those options. Each child will need a separate registration.

IMPORTANT: The Camper Information Form (included below) must be filled out and submitted first — just one Camper Information Form is required per camper, whether your child is attending one camp session or all of them: This is where you will reserve space in specific camps, but reservations are not complete until payment is received.  Campers will not be able to start camp if their information form has not been processed or full payment in agreement with membership status has not been received, so this form should be filled out and sent the same day as payment.

When your registration form (below) has been submitted, you will be given a link to the payment options page. You must complete the payment process at that time to ensure your student/camper’s place in Calusa Winter Camp 2017-18.

If you will be using the discounted Member Rates, you must enter your (non-expired) Calusa Nature Center & Planetarium Member Number here. If not, please enter 000. (required for member discount: If you have just purchased membership but do not yet have a number, please enter "just purchased" -- we will be able to verify your membership. If you do not know your member number, please call 239-275-3435 between 11 am and 4 pm daily.)
