The smiles don't stop at Shorecrest when May ends! We provide a fun and engaging summer program for children in the Tampa Bay area. Choose from traditional summer camp activities, enriching learning experiences, unique eco and marine programs and even Driver's Education for the teens! Your child will return to school in the fall renewed and refreshed, with new friendships made.
Email is the primary source of communication during the summer. Please insure that your email address is up to date at time of registration, and that you check your email account while camp is in session.
Prevention Is key! For parents worried about their children contracting Zika, the most important thing they can do is minimize the likelihood that they will get bitten in the first place. This is not the time to skimp on the bug spray.
According to the CDC, "wearing insect repellant is the best way to prevent diseases spread by mosquitoes."
How do you know if your bug spray is effective? Look for EPA-registered ingredients like DEET, picaridin, IR3535, which can be found in brands like Cutter, OFF!, Skintastic, and Skin So Soft Bug Guard Plus. Oil of lemon eucalyptus (OLE) is also a recognized bug repellent, although parents need to be aware that it should not be used on children under the age of 3.
Symptoms of Zika include fever, rash, red eyes, joint pain. Onset of symptoms may appear 3-7 days after exposure.
In the event of typical summer rain/lightning storms – all outdoor camps will be moved indoors. In the event of hurricanes or tropical storms that close our campus, you will be notified of camp closure via email and text. No refunds or make-up days are provided due to natural disasters.
