Summer Camping Program
The Florida Sheriffs Youth Ranches will be conducting five and six day sessions of summer camp at each of its two locations. The goal is to provide a wholesome atmosphere and positive camping experience for deserving boys and girls of Florida between the ages of 10 and 15.
The camp also provides an opportunity for Deputy Sheriffs and other Law Enforcement Volunteers to get personally involved with the youngsters and build positive, healthy relationships. Campers live in cabins while learning how to share and get along within a group setting. Every day contains a healthy balance between work and play, providing a valuable lesson for maturing youth.
Strong and devoted leadership is the key to a successful camping experience. The staff may include college students, graduates, teachers and other individuals committed to helping boys and girls become productive, law abiding citizens.
Summer Camp Goals:
Provide campers with opportunities to try new activities, learn new skills and make new friends.
Allow campers to interact with law enforcement officers in a positive manner and learn that “Law Officers are Your Friends”.
Teach campers valuable teamwork skills through group living, group decision making and group building activities.
