June 10-13, 2024


At Zone Summer, we believe your child should have fun, make friends, and learn about God in a way that is engaging and unforgettable. That's why we've created a four-day experience packed with a Broadway-style live production, energetic worship, large-scale demonstrations with biblical teaching, games, outdoor activities, and much more!

Children who arrive past 9:50 AM will need to be dropped off at the Information Station in the main lobby so they can be escorted to their correct group.

Early pick up is only available until 11:30 AM. Parents/guardians who need to pick up their child early from Zone Summer Half Day can head to the Information Station, located in the Lutz main lobby and we will arrange pick up for your child.

There are three groups, Yellow Group (incoming 1st + 2nd grade), Blue Group (incoming 3rd + 4th grade), and Red Group (incoming 5th + 6th grade). Children will be pre-assigned to a specific row and row leader, and will remain with them all week at Zone Summer, and cannot be changed. Assigned rows will be printed on your child's wristband, so that your child can go directly to their row and row leader upon arrival each day. There will be signage and a map for children and parents to find rows.

Parents can add friend requests in the registration form. All submissions are a request, our team will do their best to accommodate at least one request per child. Requests for children to be together that are not in the same grade groups will not be considered. For example: 2nd graders will not be able to be grouped with 3rd graders, etc. Our team will accept friend request submissions through May 19, this will give our team adequate time to accommodate as many requests as possible, prior to Zone Summer.

All payments are made final on June 1. Starting on June 1, we can no longer issue refunds for cancellations.
