About Eco Camp

Eco Camp began in 2001 with the idea that children should be able to use nature as a fun and educational backdrop in the summer.  It has expanded drastically in the past decade and is suitable for ages 6-14 years old.  Eco camp provides children the opportunity to spend the summer outdoors while learning about Florida wildlife, canoeing at UNF and having unforgettable experiences.
