City of Orange Beach preparing for Camp Sunshine and Expect Excellence summer programs

Posted

The City of Orange Beach has been preparing to welcome children back to Camp Sunshine and Expect Excellence for summer programs starting May 26. Culinary Camp is scheduled for July 13-16.

The programs will be operating consistent with all Center for Disease Control guidelines and Alabama’s Safer at Home Order concerning child care facilities including proper classroom limits, social distancing, increased sanitization of facilities and hand sanitizers.

“We’re looking forward to welcoming the kids back to Camp Sunshine and Expect Excellence for the summer. The Rec Center staff is prepared to follow all necessary CDC guidelines, as directed by the Alabama Department of Public Health, to make summer camp a safe and enjoyable experience for all of our children,” said Orange Beach Mayor Tony Kennon.

The Mayor and Council agreed to use city funds to cover the operating costs of both Camp Sunshine and Expect Excellence this summer making tuition free. Camp will only accept residents of Orange Beach this summer. Registration is currently open.

Culinary Camp registration is also open. The program is scheduled for July 13-16 from 9 a.m. till noon at the Orange Beach Community Center and costs $150 and is open to rising third through twelfth grade. Register quick because only 50 spaces are available and camp sells out every year.
