Governor DeSantis has given the green light for youth activities to reopen, including summer camps. But because the Palm Beach County School District and the City of Boca Raton have cut their summer camp options, others are expanding their offers to keep up with demand.

There are a number of camps in South Florida, and Palm Beach County especially, that have announced they will open this Summer with certain restrictions and rules in place to help keep your kids safe.

While the state of Florida is moving as fast as it can toward full re-opening, we still need to keep in mind all of the essential CDC guidelines. The governor’s office released the following reminders. Noting that, we must bear in mind that, as Floridians, we are all in this together and we have a responsibility to continue practicing mitigation measures.

On the heels of last week's charity golf event that saw Dustin Johnson, Rory Mcllroy, Rickie Fowler, and Mathew Wolff raise over $5 million dollars for Coronavirus relief efforts, Tiger Woods and Phil Mickelson took to the golf course Sunday to do the same, and they brought some friends with them. 

Joined by Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Tom Brady and retired NFL quarterback Peyton Manning, the four took to the links at Medalist Golf Club in Hobe Sound and raised $20 million for COVID-19 charities. 

While Tiger and Peyton defeated Mickelson and Brady 1-up to win the match, the real winners were not just the fans at home who got to watch live golf for the second straight week, but also all the charities that will benefit from the money raised.

Beaches on Singer Island will reopen on Tuesday.

Governor Ron DeSantis made the announcement this morning that effective immediately, state officials will end restrictions on youth activities, which includes summer camps and youth sports in Florida.

DeSantis also reiterated that no one under the age…
