In 1988, 85 acres of wilderness that we know of today as Camp Wilderness was started to provide a safe and exciting atmosphere for boys. Among the main reason to start a camp of this nature was to teach boys camping skills, moral and spiritual principals, as well as how to become good citizens.
The primary resident and owner of this camp, Florida Rangers Incorporated functions as the leader for the Pen. Florida District Royal Rangers. Some 6000 boys a year come thru Camp Wilderness for many activities and outings. Many of the visitors stretch from the Florida-Georgia state line to Key West at the southern tip of Florida. The camp also hosts leadership training for men not only at a state level but hosts national camps twice a year with men coming from all across the United States.
