Wake up in a rustic cabin surrounded by nine of your new best friends. Counselors gently encourage everyone to get ready for breakfast, where flannel pajama pants and T-shirts are perfectly acceptable. When everyone is ready, step outside into farm fresh air under blue Florida skies. Make your way toward the dining hall, but watch out - you might get caught up in a water balloon and shaving cream fight on the way! Campers arrive at the dining hall and sit at a table with their cabin.
Watch out for water balloons!
8:30am to 12:20pm
Head to the wild west, go to the extreme, or participate in general activities - we’re off to specialties! The staff of each of our “specialties” takes their group of excited campers to their program locations, where they spend the morning learning, exploring and living out their fantasy. Wild West Camp heads to the arena, Extreme Outdoors heads on an adrenaline filled adventure, and Base Camp will experience new activities each day such as archery, kayaking, 22 basic shooting, arts & crafts, or maybe drama and dance! Each specialty has an assistant director whom is an expert in that area. Each child has a place here at Camp Illihaw, where they are guaranteed to develop a fun filled week & lifetime memories!
12:30pm to 5:50pm
Lunchtime/Free time/Add-on Activities!
Campers reconnect with the members of their cabins and counselors at lunch. If anyone has a birthday, expect the whole camp singing Happy Birthday to you! Last-minute adjustments to afternoon schedules are made for weather, and then the fun continues!
1:30pm to 5:30pm
Enjoy time in the swimming hole or the air-conditioned recreation room or maybe you and your friends want to play dungeons and dragons. If you have an add-on activity this is your time we don’t want you to miss anything from your specialty camp!
5:30pm to 5:55pm
Free time before evening activities
6:00pm to 11:00pm
The sun may be setting, but the fun continues!
Have we mentioned that meals are one big party? Your counselors will get you dancing and singing at dinner, and you’ll learn all of the Camp Illahaw traditions. Then, still buzzing from an incredible day, everyone at camp gets together after dinner for the night’s evening activity.
Tonight you could be going all-out in a gameshow, cheering on your new friends at the Rockstar concert, dressing up for the themed dance, or experiencing another of the many fun events and surprises we have planned. The last night of camp culminates in the very special Camp Illahaw Showcase, where campers from different specialties show off what they’ve learned. Afterward, head back to your cabin for just a little more laughter, bonding, and swapping stories with your friends and counselors before falling asleep.
