Alliyah Frazier, 8, coached by Lee County Parks and Recreation employee Ben Lucas, hits a softball at Tramway Road Park last June. The Skills & Drills program replaced the county’s annual softball and baseball programs last summer due to the coronavirus pandemic. This year, regular seasons kicked off in April.

Some summer camps are restarting this year after mass cancellations last spring due to the coronavirus pandemic.

After more than 12 months of social isolation, many children and parents are eager to get back to normal. Summer programs won’t be exactly the same as usual this year, but many organizations are taking steps to welcome more children to recreational and educational programs.

Here is a partial listing of summer camps available in Lee County.
