Everglades Youth Conservation Camp Seeks Campers

Are you looking for a unique summer camp experience for your child? The Everglades Youth Conservation Camp (EYCC) provides a residential camp for children that just completed third through eighth grade. Campers arrive on Sunday and are picked up on Friday.

The Everglades Youth Conservation Camp (EYCC) is located in the J.W. Corbett Wildlife Management Area, three miles north of Northlake Blvd. off Seminole Pratt Whitney Road.

While at the EYCC, campers will participate in one of the nine programs provided each week based on grade level. All the programs have an environmental focus to teach the campers about the natural environment of South Florida. All campers hike, swim, canoe or kayak, fish and do archery on a daily basis. They will also participate in traditional overnight camp experiences, such as campfire programs, night hikes, arts and crafts, sports and more. Camp starts June 21 and continues through Aug. 7.

The EYCC offers an equestrian program for third through fifth graders, camping programs for sixth through eighth graders, and shooting sports programs for sixth through eighth graders. The mariners program for eighth graders includes snorkeling, kayaking and paddleboard adventurers, pier fishing, and exploration of a variety of marine environments. The newest program for sixth through eighth grade campers is called paddlers. This program teaches campers how to kayak, canoe, and paddle board and includes a paddling adventure at Grassy Waters.
