It’s time to sign up for summer camp at Mound House! Two sessions will be held during the weeks of July 11 and July 18. 

From guided tours and beach walks to kayak eco-tours and a unique archaeological experience, explore the history of the 2,000 year old Calusa Indian Shell Mound and the surrounding natural environment while having great summer fun.

Operated by “Super Science and Amazing Art” from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Friday, three camp days each week will be at Mound House and two camp days will be at Newton Beach Park.

Campers will enjoy kayaking on the Estero Bay Aquatic Preserve from the Mound House launch and swimming in the Gulf at Newton Beach Park. They will also enjoy theme-oriented organized camp activities, outside games, and nature, history and museum exploration. Each camp week has room for a minimum of six and a maximum of 15 participants.

Calusa Kids will be the theme for the camp July 11-15. Campers will discover new plants and animals, use the state-of-the-art research lab, immerse themselves in local Calusa history and travel the Great Calusa Blueway Paddling Trail. 

Marine Beach Explorers will be the theme for the camp July 18-22. Featuring a curriculum written and designed by local marine biologists, campers will collect water samples, observe wildlife, and explore the habitats of fish and wildlife on kayaking adventures.

Cost is $250 per camper per week. Early drop off and late pickup may be possible based on instructor availability. Campers will need to bring snacks, lunches and water bottles each day in addition to towels and changes of clothes.
