About Us

Camp Idlewild of Florida

Our mission is to provide innovative camping programs adapted for children ages 6-17 with Autism Spectrum Disorders (including Asperger's Syndrome), Sensory Processing Disorders, Down Syndrome and Developmental Delays, which promote personal growth, challenge their abilities and help campers develop new skills in a fun and energizing environment.

Additionally we offer the perfect venue for family reunions, birthdays, showers, corporate retreats, scouting, camping, business expos, and much more. A family friendly venue, this location is an ideal choice for brides and grooms seeking on-site recreational activities and on-site lodging. Whether you are planning a grand event with all your family and friends or an intimate gathering with your closest loved ones, the Camp Idlewild makes your wedding day vision a reality.

Camp Idlewild of Florida is pleased to offer affordable all-inclusive packages include lodging, meals, a meeting space, and the many outdoor activities including waterfront activities, sports, nature exploration (hikes) and other recreational activities. Your group may be as active as you wish or take the opportunity to relax and enjoy the peacefulness of being away from the general hustle and bustle of everyday life!

Our hope is these retreat package options will help you as a retreat planner to provide the best experience possible for your group, while simplifying your work. Some groups wish to customize their experience and seek a combination of offerings not available as a standard option; we will certainly work with you to provide the event you desire. Come spend the day at Camp Idlewild or stay the entire week! Children four-years old and younger are always free.

Camp Idlewild is a nonprofit organization located in Land O Lakes, Florida. The camp is built on 140 private acres and is surrounded by Florida?s natural landscape of cypress trees and a private lake. This location provides the perfect setting to enjoy many outdoor activities while having a whole lot of fun!

We look forward to meeting you and your guests! For more information please visit our website at or call our office and talk with one of our Directors (813)996-1226.
