Camp Weed has served as the Diocese of Florida’s resident camp for more than 92 years. In that time, we’ve moved from St. Augustine Beach to Panama City, finally settling in 1978 in Live Oak, Florida. During that time, we’ve served thousands of campers, and we love seeing generations of families - grandparents, parents, and children - come through our gates. Camp Weed offers a unique summer experience that allows campers to experience God’s great outdoors, and through them, experience God.
