Event description



Eco Adventure Days is a fun and educational way for your child to discover the amazing diversity of Florida’s natural resources. Campers will learn about the diverse habitats of Ravine Gardens State Park, conduct scientific experiments in a fun environment, and even work on projects at the park like a real park ranger! This three day event will be filled with learning objectives and corresponding activities, games, and crafts!


Ravine Gardens State Park is a historical garden park located in Palatka, Florida. The park boasts beautiful gardens, trails, a steephead ravine system, and an abundance of wildlife viewing opportunities. The park is offering a summer camp aimed at exploring Florida's amazing natural resources!
