The 2017 summer camps camps draw thousands of youngsters throughout the region to programs, outings and activities at traditional camps, teen camps and specialty camps.

Do not procrastinate - each year, the spots at Wa-Ke Hatchee, Lakes Regional Park and Estero Recreation Center fill up well before school is out.

Summer camp runs eight weeks, from June 5 to July 28.

A tip from the registration desk: If you plan to register for camp at one of the four major recreation centers - Veterans Park, Wa-Ke Hatchee, Estero or North Fort Myers - you need to obtain a facility membership first.

Swimming lessons and other summer aquatics programs are available at the county's four year-round community pools in Lehigh Acres, North Fort Myers, Pine Island and San Carlos Park. To register, stop by the nearest pool, call 239-533-7275 or visit:
