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.

So far, YMCAs and other organizations have done just that. 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. Here are some of the camps opening this Summer in Palm Beach County.
