How to Help

 

wekivanaturalist1Wekiva Youth Camp is only possible with the generous support of Garden Clubs, Circles, Districts and individuals from around the state.  Our youth are fortunate to have access to this valuable environmental experience at a VERY reasonable cost.  Donations of time and talent allow us to guarantee quality programs and supervision. Financial assistance for Camperships, Programming, Supplies and Infrastructure Maintenance & Improvement is always welcome.  As a 501(c)3 charitable corporation, we qualify for many matching corporate gifts.  Please contact the Wekiva Youth Camp Chairman for details.

Donations for Unspecified Camperships, Buildings & Maintenance or General Support are always appreciated.  Please make your check payable to Wekiva Youth Camp and mail to WYC Treasurer, 1887 NW Pine Lake Drive, Stuart, FL  34994-9444.  If donating for a specific program or item, please specify in the Memo line of the check.

Gift Certificates are available to give a child a “Week of Wonder” and the experience of a lifetime.

The Florida Federation of Garden Clubs, Inc. (FFGC) participates in several programs where collecting labels allows us to acquire items for camp.  The Labels for Education Program includes Box Tops for Education, Campbell Soup labels, Coke labels and more.  Additionally, FFGC participates in the Amazon Services LLC Associates Program, an affiliate advertising program designed to provide a means for sites to earn advertising fees by advertising and linking to Amazon.  So, when you shop at Amazon, go the FFGC’s Home Page then click on the Amazon.com logo at the bottom left side of the home page.  Your price will remain the same, and you’ll be helping FFGC and Wekiva Youth Camp.
