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.


Health Insurance Required   You must have health insurance coverage for your child in order to register for camp.  Policy name and number will be required at registration.

All counselors are trained for camp and are American Red Cross First Aid & CPR certified and have completed on-site training. 



Weekly Camp Activities Include:

  • Canoeing, kayaking and stand up paddle boarding
  • Swimming
  • Arts and crafts using natural materials
  • Education about local flora and fauna
  • Team building activities and games

*Swimming is at a campus housing swimming pool.  Due to the limited capacity of this pool, camp groups will be scheduled on a rotating swimming schedule each week.  Swim lessons are not available.  Certified lifeguards are on duty.  US Coast Guard life jackets are provided to non-swimmers who do not pass the swim test.
