“Camp has a way of introducing youth to the outdoors through fun, hands-on, minds-on activities that create lifelong connections to nature," said Cuscowilla Manager Jamie Bass. "Our camp provides an increasingly rare opportunity for children to unplug and immerse themselves in the natural world right here in Alachua County."

The weekly rate is $100. Campers will receive breakfast, lunch, and a snack. Daily bus transportation is included to and from Lincoln Middle School. Campers can also be dropped off and picked up from the Camp, located at 210 SE 134th Ave, Micanopy, FL.

Qualifying campers can also receive a scholarship from Alachua County Children’s Trust and the Friends of Cuscowilla, with completed applications and proof of documents.
