The Florida Sheriffs Youth Ranches has two locations which provide a positive camping experience for many of Florida's deserving children. The purpose of these camps is to provide a wholesome atmosphere and positive camping experience for boys and girls (ages 10-15).

At the Youth Camp/Barberville and Caruth Camp-Inglis/Yankeetown, boys and girls experience many different therapeutic camping activities. Canoeing, archery, swimming, and many other recreational activities allow them the opportunity to build basic teamwork and peer communication skills. Additionally, they can spend the week enjoying the beautiful, tranquil outdoor environment.

The camp also provides an opportunity for Deputy Sheriffs and other Law Enforcement Volunteers to get personally involved with the youngsters to form positive, healthy relationships. Campers live among their peers, learning how to share and function properly within a group setting. Every day contains a healthy balance between work and play, proving a valuable lesson for maturing youth.

Strong and devoted leadership is the key to a successful camping experience. The staff includes college students, graduates, teachers, and other professionals committed to helping boys and girls become productive, law-abiding citizens.

Summer Camp online registration for 2020 will open on March 2nd. For more information about applying to summer camp click here.
