As part of the FWC, FYCCN helps the agency coordinate and run several summer camps throughout the state. Camps vary in the activities they offer, but the theme of conservation-­centered recreation is consistent throughout. Some of these camps, like Ocala Outdoor Adventure Camp and Everglades Youth Conservation Camp, have been offering fun, affordable and educational camps for decades. Caring staff and volunteers make every effort to help the campers have a safe, enjoyable experience in the real Florida.
