City of Sunny Isles Beach Summer Camp

A Message from the Mayor: Summer Camp

By Larisa Svechin, Mayor

(Wednesday, May 1, 2024) – As we quickly approach the summer season and the school year comes to a close, our Cultural and Community Services Department is gearing up for Summer Camp. Registration is now open for children ages 5 to 15 to join in the adventure, with activities ranging from field trips to games, and much more. Camp kicks off June 10 and promises weeks of unforgettable experiences.

Registration for summer camp is available online at You can also register in person at Pelican Community Park, Monday – Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 8 p.m. (except between 2 -6 p.m.) and Saturdays from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. You can find a full list of camps and general information by visiting

In addition, there will be some changes to our Adult & Senior programs this summer. Residents ages 55 and older can take part in the Senior Summer Camp themed A Trip Around the World. Dive into a global adventure with friends and neighbors with language lessons, cultural culinary classes, and enriching field trips each Friday. The camp also starts June 10 and ends with a two-day Margaritaville Cruise to Grand Bahama Island on July 30 and returning August 1.

Registration is now open to residents. If you would like to invite a friend who does not live in Sunny Isles Beach, registration for non-residents opens May 15. As we prepare for summer, let’s also remember our conservation efforts, particularly during sea turtle season, which runs until October 31. Sea turtles are protected under federal, state, and local laws and are crucial to our ocean’s ecosystem.

I encourage residents to contribute to the safe and undisturbed nesting of sea turtles by steering clear of marked sea turtle nests and respecting their natural behavior. A nest will be marked off with stakes, neon tape, and a nest sign. It is against the law to disturb a sea turtle, its nest, eggs, or hatchlings. If you encounter anyone vandalizing a nest, please call our police at 305.947.4440 or the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission at 888.404.3922. I also want to emphasize to keep bright lights from shining on the beach, as this can confuse turtles and lead them away from the ocean.
