Camp Kids in the Woods at the Austin Cary Forest a summer day camp for rising 6th-10th graders. This camp collaborative effort between the University of Florida’s School of Forest Resources and Conservation and the USDA Forest Service’s Southern Research Station and Region 8. Our school year Kids in the Woods program, which is currently in Westwood Middle School, Stephen Foster Elementary School, and Littlewood Elementary School, takes 4th and 6th graders outside to conduct scientific studies on their school campus and nearby nature areas. This summer camp is an extension of our Kids in the Woods program and provides an amazing opportunity for students interested in learning more about their natural world.
