We have a big summer ahead of us! Come out to Calusa Nature Center and Planetarium for our nature-focused summer camps. Explore our 105-acre forest, meet our live animals, watch planetarium shows, and more!

Early drop-off (8:00-8:30) and after care (4:00-6:00) are available
Our camps are tailored to different age ranges each week. Please look at each week on our schedule to see which will be suited for your camper(s). The grades listed are the ones your campers will be entering next fall.

If you have any questions, have a problem during the registration process, or would like more information, please send an email here
Please fill out the application below to register your camper(s) online. Clicking the Submit button will automatically redirect you to the page where camp sessions can be purchased. To register additional campers, please return to this page and fill out the camper information form again. Your child will not be registered until both of these are completed!
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 (15) campers. If the camp session you would like is already full, please email here 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 requiring parents to confirm that their camper has not been exposed to COVID-19 in writing each day of camp.
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!
