Southeastern Dog Hunters Association

The Southeastern Dog Hunters Association (SEDHA) was originally organized as the Blackwater Dog Hunters Association in 2012 out of Santa Rosa County, Florida but, quickly changed its name to represent members across the United States. Our primary base of members resides and hunts in Florida’s Hunting Zone D (Tallahassee to Escambia County). We strive to recruit, retain & reactivate men and woman in outdoor activities by offering a variety of opportunities to youth and families.

Camp Weed & Cerveny Conference Center

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.

Boy Scouts of America

In Scouting, boys and girls start with their best right now selves and grow into their very best future selves. It’s fun, hands-on learning and achievement that puts kids in the middle of the action and prepares them for today – and for life. The BSA’s goal is to train youth in responsible citizenship, character development, and self-reliance through participation in a wide range of outdoor activities, educational programs, and, at older age levels, career-oriented programs in partnership with community organizations.
