Residency requirements: In order to ensure that priority is given to verified residents for space and discounted pricing, the City implements strict guidelines for proof-of-residency. Residents must have a valid City-issued SIB Resident ID Card in order to register during the priority period and to receive the discounted rates.
Registration Fee for camp is a one-time, non-refundable fee ($35 for residents, $55 for non-residents). This fee includes one t-shirt, participants insurance, and administrative processing fees. The registration form, the non-refundable registration fee, a copy of child’s birth certificate, and a 50% (1/2) deposit of camp fees are required for camp enrollment.
The balance of camp fees will be due by June 2. See Payment and Refund Policies for details below.
All camps have limited space available. Once a camp is full, a waiting list will be started for that camp.
Financial assistance is NOT available for any of our programs.
Payment, Refund, Cancellation Policies
Registration fee for any camp is a one-time, non-refundable fee ($35 for residents, $55 for non-residents). Only one registration fee is applied for the summer, regardless of how many different camps you register for.
Payments will be due in two parts: 1/2 at the time of registration, and the final 1/2 due by June 2. There are no grace periods on payments. If payment is not received by the due date, your reservation will be lost, and your deposit will NOT be refunded.
NEW: Camp balances can now be paid online at activites.sibfl.net. You will receive login credentials during the time or registration and will be able to pay the summer camp balance online.
Refunds or transfers of camp fees (minus CANCELLATION/TRANSFER FEE) can be made by submitting a Refund/Transfer Request Form (in writing) with at least 14 days notice to the Cultural & Community Services office. A CANCELLATION/TRANSFER FEE of $20 per week will be applied for ANY and ALL summer camp cancellations and/or transfers. Please understand that there is extensive administrative work involved in processing changes in your child’s enrollment, and allocating a replacement.
Any returned checks must be settled at the office with cash or money order and will be assessed a $30 “returned check” fee. This must be settled immediately or may result in your child’s removal from the program.
Full Payment Discount: If you register your child for camp before June 2 and choose to pay the full amount due at the time of registration, you will receive a discount off your total camp fees (10% discount for residents, 5% discount for non-residents).
*Please note that a sibling discount is not available.
Field Trip Policy
All camps, excluding specialty camps and baseball, go on a variety of fun field trips during the summer. Dates, times and locations vary depending on the camp and/or session. In previous summers, SIB camps have gone to Zoo Miami, Frost Museum of Science, Planet Air, iFly, Xtreme Action Park, Marlins Park, SkyZone, and Lion Country Safari, just to name a few! Signed permission slips and additional waivers (varied by location) are required.
As we have established staff to camper ratios for each of our Summer Camps, we cannot accommodate campers who do not attend (or miss) a field trip. Therefore, if your child is not going to attend the field trip, they must stay home and cannot come to camp.
Once any camp becomes full, a waitlist will be started for that week. Anyone interested in having their name placed on the waitlist must fill out a waitlist form. Interested participants will have the following priority on the waitlist:
- 1st Priority: Enrolled Participants (Children who are already enrolled in another week of the camp)
- 2nd Priority: Residents
- 3rd Priority: Non-Residents
The City of Sunny Isles Beach offers a variety of camp options for children ranging in age from 5 to 15 years old, including General Day Camps, Specialty Day Camps and Sports Day Camps.

Camp Hours & Late Pick-Up Policy
Please take note of the specific camp hours for the camps your child is enrolled. Camp hours (with the exception of Junior Lifeguard Camp) are 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. You will not be permitted to drop off your child earlier than the camp start time (9:30 a.m. for Junior Lifeguard Camp). Drop-off and pick-up for ALL CAMPS is at Pelican Community Park, with the exception of Junior Lifeguard Camp, which is at Samson Oceanfront Park. If you do not pick up your child by the end of camp (3:30 p.m. for Junior Lifeguard), you will be charged late fees and you MUST pay this at the time you pick up your child.
Late fees are as follows:
- 15 minutes late: $10
- 16 – 30 minutes late: $20
- More than 30 minutes late: $20 + $1/minute for every minute thereafter
Please understand it is imperative that you pick up your child(ren) on time, as our staff has other responsibilities and tasks that need to be completed and cannot when they are needed to supervise your child(ren).
Drop-Off & Pick-Up
In order to provide the quickest and most efficient method to drop off and pick up your child from summer camp, we will continue to provide curbside drop-off and pick-up. Between the hours of 8:30 and 9:15 a.m. and 4:30 to 5:15 p.m., there will be City staff stationed on the sidewalks on 182 Drive and 181 Street, waiting for parents to pull up and will process sign in/out at curbside. For drop-off, campers will be taken by a staff member to the office for check-in. For pick-up, campers will be brought out to the car. Campers will be escorted at all times until they are safely seated in their parent’s vehicle. ANY PERSON PICKING UP A CAMPER WILL ALWAYS BE REQUIRED TO SHOW PICTURE IDENTIFICATION. Campers will ONLY be released to persons listed on the child’s Pick-Up Authorization List. Any additions/subtractions to this list need to be made in writing.
