The Best Horse and Adventure Camp in Florida!

Explore the wild at Camp Illahaw, at Forever Florida, is a wildlife sanctuary on 4700 acres of conservation land! With three camps to choose from; Base, Wild West and Extreme Outdoor Camp, we have something for everyone!. Base campers will experience kayaking, archery, basic .22 shooting, trail buggy nature tours, a ropes challenge course, water activities, arts & crafts and hiking. Our Camp America team of counselors will fill in the rest based on skills and interest. Drama, dance, field sports and outdoor cooking have been favorites in the past!

Want some real excitement in your daily camp experience? Extreme Outdoor Camp is our "specialty" camp designed for the adrenaline junky! This all-inclusive Specialty camp ties in all of our Extreme activities into one all- inclusive camp! Learn marksmanship on our awesome .22 Cricket rifle range, learn archery skills, learn military tactics in a game of paintball, target and clay shooting at the nearby FWC shooting range, and top it all off with an action-packed experience on our 7 Zip course, the ONLY zip-coaster in the U.S., a 7 story assisted free fall jump, a 1/4 mile long racing zip, and THE NEW climbing wall! These adventures allow campers to discover the courage they never knew they had, while providing them a great team building and bonding experience!

Want the full Florida Cracker Cowboy or Cowgirl experience? Wild West Camp is designed for the camper that wants to relive the days of the original Florida Cracker Cowboys and Cowgirls! This all inclusive "specialty" camp gives campers an experience that only campers in the Wild West Camp can experience. Campers will learn to groom, handle and ride at an advanced level, sorting cattle, rotating cattle and driving cattle are all part of the daily life of true Florida Cracker Cowboys or Cowgirls, this specialty camp will immerse all campers into that daily life from days past. Ride a horse, swing a rope, pop a whip and spend time in a true 1800's "cracker shack" cabin is just a few of the many experiences that will be had in this once in a lifetime camping experience.
