Education at camp is “life wide." Campers are expected to complete all learning activities and scheduled assignments. The residential and experiential aspects of the camp program allow campers the flexibility of learning, natural science, local and state history, reading, composition, mathematics, health, physical education, environmental science, and home economics. Most of these subjects are taught
in block units allowing the group to invest a great deal of time and energy on specific content area. Whether on our campus or beyond searching for fossils on the Peace River, canoeing the Suwannee River, or sea kayaking the Everglades, our staff and teachers are
always looking to challenge our students to reach their full potential.
