(Click on image to Wekiva Youth Camp website)
Wekiva Youth Camp is comprised of six one-week sessions
during June to July and is located in
Wekiwa Springs State Park, just north of Orlando
on Wekiva Springs Road (off State Road 434).
FFGC partners with the Florida Parks Service
to maintain the camp.
It is non-profit and self-supporting, and is accredited by
the American Camp Association.
All who attend or serve at our camp have an unforgettable experience
enjoying nature, crafts, and the beauty of the natural world in a
magical, beautiful and pristine setting.
Campers should be interested in nature and like the outdoors.
At Camp our boys and girls enjoy a unique outdoor living and
learning experience, with close supervision.
They explore the beauty of wild Florida, enjoy the plants and animals of
Wekiva and discover the importance of conservation
for the future of our state and our planet.
Our motto for our youth is
"Campers Today – Environmental Leaders Tomorrow".
Garden Club members donate their time and talents to teach nature and crafts that are environmentally
related. Camp Counselors work with the youths to provide an enriching and fun camping experience.
Campers are housed 8 to a cabin (plus two counselors) in the 13 on site cabins. Programs cover nature study,
crafts, swimming, sports and evening programs.
Camp is held in one-week sessions during the summer
(mid June through mid July).
