Events, Families

The St. Johns County Recreation & Parks Department operates Super Summer Spectacular summer camps for children in kindergarten through fifth grade at multiple locations throughout the County. The camps are geared towards outdoor play and are staffed by experienced and motivated leaders and counselors. Each site participates in three exciting field trips, arts and crafts activities and swimming once a week. Space is very limited and registration is lottery based.

The lottery registration for the Super Summer Spectacular camps will open on February 28th and close at 5:00 pm on March 11th. Parents may register for the lottery in one of three ways:

  • Online at www.sjcfl.us/recreation.
  • In person at Ketterlinus Gymnasium, the Recreation and Parks Office on Mizell Road or the Solomon Calhoun Community Center.
  • By contacting Jamie Baccari at (904) 209-0377.

Participants selected for the camp will be chosen at random by a lottery held on Saturday, March 19th. Applicants do not need to be present for the lottery. All results of the lottery will be mailed by March 28th.

The 2011 camp dates are June 20th to August 5th, from 7:30 am to 5:30 pm daily. Locations will include:

  • Ponte Vedra Community Center, Ponte Vedra
  • Plantation Park, St. Johns
