Ecology Summer Camp

2019 Registration Open

Explore with us! Young scientists and explorers ages 7-12 are invited to join us for a week of science, nature, and fun in Florida’s heartland. Hike through beautiful and rare habitats, visit a working cattle ranch, swim in a sinkhole lake, meet scientists, create art, and make new friends.

Online registration and payment for campers here

Sponsorships for financial need: Thanks to donations from our friends and supporters, we offer sponsorships for families with economic need. Camp fees are waived for children who qualify for sponsorships. Sponsorship families provide their own transportation and lunch. Sponsorship applicants must fill out the application and send in an official school letter stating the child receives free or reduced lunch. Apply using registration link above.

Teenage Volunteers: Teens that love science and nature, and are looking for leadership experience, are encouraged to apply for our Team Leader positions. Team Leaders work a one week camp session and earn 35+ hours helping run camp activities and acting as role models for our campers. Apply here
