School's Out Camp

We host School's Out Camp almost every day that Lee County schools are not in session. Your child can spend their days off exploring our 105-acre property and learning all about Southwest Florida's unique ecology. 

School's Out Camp drop-off (without Early Drop-off purchase) opens at 8:30 am.

Camp begins at 9:00 am and ends at 4:00 pm. 

If you have an early drop-off or late pick-up requirement, please pay for those options on the payment form. Penalties for late pick-up are $5 for every 10 minutes after designated pick-up time.

Pricing: $35/day members or $45/day non-members

Early drop-off 8:00 am: $5/day

Late pickup 4:00-6:00 pm: $15/day

School's Out Camp is for campers from 7 to 14 years of age.

The safety of our campers is our first priority here at CNCP, and so we have developed a plan for reducing risk of COVID-19 exposure during camp.

  • Camp sessions limit has been expanded to fifteen campers. If the camp session you would like is already full, please email to get on the waiting list.

  • All campers must bring their own hand sanitizer and mask each day of camp. We will be requiring that masks are used whenever possible.

  • We will be checking temperatures of each camper at drop-off each day.

We have also modified certain procedures to reduce the sharing of items (such as craft supplies) between campers and reduce camper physical contact. Our camp is designed to take place almost entirely outside, where campers will have lots of fresh air and space to spread out!

If you have any questions, have a problem during the registration process, or would like more information, please email


Please fill out the application below if you wish to register your camper(s) online. Clicking this button will automatically re-direct you to the page where camp sessions can be purchased. Your child will not be registered until both of these are completed!

I have read the description of the camp experience offered at Calusa Nature Center & Planetarium and understand that drop-off time is 8:30 - 9:00 am, pickup time 4 pm unless the applicable day's Early Drop-Off and/or After-Care have been arranged ahead of time with the office. Pickups after the end of the day will be charged by the 10-min increment ($5 for every 10 minutes past the designated pick-up time). I also understand that activities will be involved in my child's camp program; I find them acceptable for my child’s participation. Recognizing the educational benefits of this program to my child, and acknowledging that it is completely voluntary, I, the parent/guardian, do hereby agree to release, indemnify and hold harmless the Calusa Nature Center & Planetarium for any loss, injury or damage resulting directly or indirectly from my child's participation in this program. Pictures of the camp, not identifying my child, may be used online to illustrate camp activities and promote future camps. My acceptance and submission of this form constitutes my digital signature (paper waiver will be signed on the first day of camp).
