Wellington To Offer New Online Registration Option For All-Day Summer Camp

Registration will open in March for Wellington’s popular All-Day Summer Camp. This year, the Parks & Recreation Department is offering the option of online registration. To take advantage of online registration, users must create a CivicRec account with the department.

Wellington’s Summer Camp is for ages 5 to 15 and is held at the Village Park Gymnasium (11700 Pierson Road). The camp runs in weekly sessions, Monday through Friday, from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m., June 3, through Aug. 9.

Campers are divided by age group for age-appropriate activities scheduled throughout the day. Activities include athletics, arts and crafts, animal exhibits, games and entertainment, magicians, movies and more. Older age groups go on field trips to local attractions. On Tuesdays and Thursdays, all campers go to the Wellington Aquatics Complex.

Registration will open Monday, March 4 for ages 5 to 6; Wednesday, March 6, for ages 7 to 12; and Friday, March 8 for ages 13 to 15.

If your child is 6 and will be turning 7, or 12 turning 13, between June and August, it is important that you contact the office for assistance at (561) 791-4748 before registering.

The cost to register is $175 per week, per camper for residents; and $200 per week, per camper for non-residents. There is a $30 per camper, per week administrative fee deducted for transfer and refund requests.

While registration is available both online and in-person at Village Park, registrants are encouraged to take advantage of online registration. A CivicRec account must be established before registration and may be created in person at Village Park. A birth certificate copy is required for first-time registrants. If you do not already have a CivicRec account, two forms of ID will be required to establish proof of residency.

A completed summer camp registration packet is also required for each camper. They can be picked up in person at Village Park and returned in person or submitted to summercamp@wellingtonfl.gov. Packets can also be completed online at www.wellingtonfl.gov/summercamp.
