Mote Camp Policies

We recommend registering early as we are running at limited capacities this summer. If you did not register for Mote Summer Camp in 2020, you will need to set up a new account with this registration system.

WAITLIST INFO: As of April 22, we have openings in our Summerland Keys Camps and for Tidal Tykes and Sea Sleuths for the week of August 9th only. All Aqua Kids camps are at capacity. You may add your child to a Waitlist for any camp that is at capacity (click the Register Now button to add your child to any week's Waitlist). Unfortunately, we are unable to tell you the likelihood of being called on from the Waitlist. Should an opening come about, we contact families in the order they are on the Waitlist. Due to our limited capacity, we do not anticipate large numbers of Waitlisters being contacted this summer.

FOR ALL CAMPS:  Your camper’s health and safety are always our top priorities. Our camp programs are taking all necessary precautions and following policies and guidelines from the CDC along with local, state, and government health officials. We ask that all families follow our safety protocols to keep campers, staff, volunteers and interns safe this summer. Additional details on these policies are listed during registration and your reminder email one week prior to camp will contain the latest update on our current policies and practices to keep your family healthy. Please email with any questions.
