Everglades Youth Conservation Camp

2017 Summer Camp Registration Opens January 15

TIPS FOR PARENTS

Each year seasonal staff are hired and trained for summer employment. The hiring process includes interviews, reference checks and criminal background screening. Your child's safety is our first priority. Our camp is staffed with responsible program instructors and group leaders. If your child has any severe medical, behavioral, or emotional issues, please call to discuss the appropriateness of our camp programs with our Camp Director prior to enrollment.


REGISTRATION PROCEDURES

This summer we will not be using the online registration process. We are in the process of researching a new service that will meet our needs, but will not have it in place for the 2017 summer season.
