Tina Worrell, chairperson for Wekiva Youth Camp, Clermont Garden Club is happy to announce the Camperships for the summer of 2022 at Wekiva Youth Camp.  The students chosen for one week at Wekiva Youth Camp are Chase and Rilee Gonzalez and Izak and Sylas Hawkins.  All are students at Lost Lake Elementary.  Campers are chosen from applications from South Lake public and private elementary schools.
WEKIVA YOUTH CAMP is a residential nature camp for 3rd thru 8th Grade youngsters sponsored by the Florida Federation of Garden Clubs, Inc.(FFGC) for the purpose of instilling a love and respect for the REAL Florida in our youth through nature study, conservation and protection of our environment for the future of our state and our planet. Wekiva Youth Camp is accredited by the American Camp Association.
Wekiva Youth Camp is comprised of six one-week sessions during June & July in Wekiwa Springs State Park, where FFGC (a not-for-profit organization) partners with the Florida Parks Service to improve and maintain the facilities.  Wekiva Youth Camp promises an unforgettable experience enjoying nature, crafts, and the beauty of the natural world in a magical, pristine setting. Campers should be interested in nature and like the outdoors.  Florida residency is not required and campers are welcomed without regard to race, color, religion or ethnicity. Campers enjoy a unique outdoor living and learning experience, with close supervision. Our motto for our youth is “Campers Today – Environmental Leaders Tomorrow”.
