Everglades Youth Conservation Camp
2016 Summer Camp Registration Opens January 15
The Everglades Youth Conservation Camp (EYCC) is located on the J.W. Corbett Wildlife Management Area in western Palm Beach County. The Youth Camp was created by individuals who cared deeply about conservation, protecting wilderness areas, wildlife in natural habitats and preserving a way of life. The camp facility is managed by the Florida Youth Conservation Centers Network, Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission.
The residential summer camp program is for children completing 3rd – 8th grade. The EYCC also offers a Leadership Camp for youth completing grades 9th – 12th grade. Summer camp activities challenge camper’s physical, mental and social growth. Group leaders and instructors serve as guides through camp life and activities, mentors and role models. EYCC’s summer programs feature a unique conservation education theme with outdoor adventure activities in the Florida Everglades, as well as time to relax, have fun and make new friends.
