The Everglades Youth Conservation Camp (EYCC) is located on the J.W. Corbett Wildlife Management Area in western Palm Beach County. The Youth Camp was created by individuals who cared deeply about conservation, protecting wilderness areas, wildlife in natural habitats and preserving a way of life. The camp facility is managed by the Florida Youth Conservation Centers Network, Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission.

The residential summer camp program is for campers 8–14 years old. The EYCC also offers a Junior Counselor program for campers 15–17 years old. Summer camp activities challenge camper’s physical, mental and social growth. Cabin counselors serve as guides through camp life and instructors are mentors and role models. EYCC’s summer programs feature a unique environmental education theme with outdoor adventure activities in the Florida Everglades, recreational opportunities and time to relax, have fun and make new friends.

The Everglades Youth Conservation Camp is an American Camp Association (ACA) accredited facility, meeting all ACA health, safety, and program quality standards.
