Since 1909, Camp Immokalee has been providing safe, fun, and high-quality summer resident camp programs for youth in Florida and around the world. Immokalee campers learn to care for themselves, others, and the world around them while building life and activity skills through camp activities. Grit, gratitude and character are 21st-century skills every young person will need to succeed, and our camp activities are carefully designed to get kids out of their comfort zone and develop leadership skills while building community and having fun.
Campers live in cabins with other campers of their own age and gender identity, and under the guidance of their assigned camp counselor. Cabin life teaches young people self-sufficiency, contributing to a small community, and stewardship of their cabin and camp.
Immokalee provides campers with the opportunity to immerse themselves in nature, and through that experience, learn about themselves and connect with others. With this purpose in mind, we keep Immokalee a tech-free zone. Cell phones and other media devices are not allowed at camp in order to protect the privacy of all campers and to prevent campers from immersing in a screen instead of in the camp environment and community. Digital or disposable cameras are welcome, and allow campers to select what images they would like to share with friends and families after their time at camp is over.
YMCA Camp Immokalee will monitor cases in our area and guidelines from the American Camp Association, the CDC, and Y-USA to make our COVID-19 protocols for Summer 2022. These will be released in late Winter/early Spring 2022.
Military scholarships are available to our military families.
