Calusa camp is for campers from 6 to 13 years of age. All six-year-olds must have completed kindergarten upon starting camp.
Please fill out the application below if you wish to register your camper(s) online. Each camper will require a separate registration form fill, but choice of multiple camp days may be made in that camper’s registration and payments for all of your campers may be made in one pass by setting the item quantities appropriately.
IMPORTANT: The Camper Information Form (included below) must be filled out and submitted once your camper is registered — just one Camper Information Form is required per camper: This is where you will reserve space in specific camps, so be SURE to fill it out as soon as payment is made! Campers will not be able to start camp if their information form has not been processed, so this form should be filled out and sent the same day as registration.
Please remember that your student’s place will NOT be assured until you complete the payment (each payment link, each of the green buttons just above the registration form, opens in a new browser tab).
