Low-income residents may still qualify for scholarships to Alachua County summer camps.  

Residents can apply if they fall below 200% of the poverty line, have children with an IEP or 504 Plan, families who receive SNAP benefits, if the child is in foster care, under case management supervision or are under voluntary formal kinship care.  

Alachua County’s “A Summer of Discovery” will be held for eight weeks at the Cuscowilla Nature and Retreat Center (210 S.E. 134th Ave, Micanopy). The camp is intended for children between the ages of 7-12.

The day camp runs June 8 through July 28, and they are Monday to Friday from 7:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Campers will receive breakfast, lunch, and a snack each day. Bus transportation is included to and from Lincoln Middle School (1001 S.E. 12th St, Gainesville). 

Camp dates are flexible. Children can take part in camp for one week or the entire summer. Weekly camp dates are $100.  

Each week, campers will engage in different activities such as archery, swimming, outdoor skills, arts and crafts, or boating.  

Camp registration is available online. Applicants must indicate interest in applying for a scholarship.  

Parents or guardians must show proof of documentation before receiving a full scholarship.
