The Florida Sheriffs Youth Ranches began in 1957 with our Ranch in Live Oak, FL. Our Camping Services department begin in 1983 in Barberville, FL at our Youth Camp. As of 2020 there are 4 residential ranches, 3 overnight camps, and one day camp. During our summer program we offer 7 mobile camps through out the state every week.We work with youth in need of services who would not have the opportunity to go to summer camp. Our camping motto is "Law enforcement officers are your friends". Alongside our camp counselors, deputies volunteer a week at a time to come spend time with our campers. Our summer camps provide demonstration from County, State, and Federal law enforcement.
