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.
All campers who register before June 1 will receive one water bottle and one backpack per summer. Our 2021 water bottles are made possible through a partnership with Beaches Go Green and with support from Donovan Heat & Air! All overnight campers will receive a reusable metal water bottle thanks to these incredible partners! Read more about our partnership here.
YMCA Camp Immokalee is committed to the health and safety of our campers and staff, and we will implement policies for Summer 2021 that help minimize the risk of COVID-19 spread at camp. These will look very similar to our Summer 2020 and off-season policies. For more information, see the link below!
