Day 6: Experiencing Nature

Camp Illahaw

Last year, FFC provided the funding for Julie to attend Camp Illahaw where she learned how to ride a real Florida Cracker horse! She also had the opportunity to herd cattle and zip through the eco-adventure park on their quarter-mile-long zipline track. We hope Julie had a great time and made long-lasting memories!

Camp Illahaw overnight summer camp offers campers the chance to experience all Florida has to offer with fun activities from Horseback Riding, Low Ropes Course, Hiking. Kayaking, Archery and more! Located here in Central Florida, it is a wonderful opportunity for our kids. They get the chance to experience the great outdoors and beautiful sunny Florida!


For many foster children in Central Florida, the typical childhood experience of attending summer camp would not be possible without the assistance of the Foundation for Foster Children. Children who attend summer camp are given a safe place to learn and grow and build up their self-confidence, self-esteem, and independence. They also build healthy relationships with peers and adults.

With your help, we can raise $10K in 10 Days to send children in foster care to summer camp. We can reach our goal with 100 people giving $100 or just 10 people giving $1,000!
