Cuscowilla (formerly Camp McConnell, 210 S.E. 134th Avenue. Micanopy) has begun registering children from second to eighth grade for summer day camps. The summer day camps are Monday through Friday, starting on June 21, 2021. Thanks to a grant from the Children’s Trust of Alachua County and fundraising efforts from the Friends of Cuscowilla, the 2021 summer camp season will be free of charge.
Camper drop-off is from 7:30 a.m. to 8:30 a.m., and pick-up is from 5 p.m. to 6 p.m.
“Day Camp is the perfect opportunity to get comfortable at camp,” says Cuscowilla Manager Lexi Green. “From archery to canoeing, interactive education to silly songs, we strive to create a memorable experience that allows your young person to develop relationships, experience achievement, and create a sense of belonging. Each week is different from the last, so come for a week or stay for the entire summer.”
Cuscowilla is a summer camp where youth in elementary and middle school experience an atmosphere of caring and acceptance at every turn, learning to play, laugh, and grow together.
Cuscowilla is also a 211-acre retreat where groups are invited to connect, refresh, renew, and grow all year long. Guests at Cuscowilla can enjoy comfortable climate-controlled lodging, easy access to the interstate, historic Micanopy, and Gainesville, and an atmosphere of bringing Alachua County’s mission “where nature and culture meet” to life. It is a resource for residents to utilize to enhance and strengthen their local community, to nurture and learn about Florida’s natural ecosystems, and to provide the community with opportunities to connect, learn, and grow year-round.
