With spaces being limited to maintain CDC physical distancing guidelines, the city will be holding a lottery for camp spaces beginning Wednesday.

CLEARWATER – It has been a challenging time these past few months, especially for parents and children having to juggle work and school life in new, creative ways.

To help give parents a break and to keep children active, the city of Clearwater will be offering limited-capacity summer camps June 8  through Aug. 7.

New safety precautions will be in place to keep children and staff safe. They include assigning a staff member for a group of nine campers who will stay with the same group all day, daily wellness checks of staff and campers, and eliminating field trips or large gatherings.

With spaces being limited to maintain CDC physical distancing guidelines, the city will be holding a lottery for camp spaces beginning Wednesday (May 27). Clearwater residents, local business owners and city employees will get priority in the lottery. Lottery forms can be found at myclearwaterparks.com/camps and will be collected through Monday (May 25). The lottery will be held Wednesday and parents will be
notified starting Thursday (May 28).
