The E.O. Wilson Biophilia Center is a state-of-the-art education facility located on 10 acres of conservation land. It was built with ample space for both indoor and outdoor learning. Our main campus features a grand entrance exhibit hall - an interactive space with live animal displays, learning games and life-like dioramas of the Longleaf Pine Ecosystem. Our classroom spaces include a lab for messy projects and studies, a reptile room, and several multi-purpose rooms. Campers can assemble for movie night or a bird show in our 160 seat theater, complete with big screen.
The Biophilia Center also has a discovery pond for exploration and study. Small aquatic creatures abound in this shallow, natural environment. Campers can experience a variety of habitats from wetlands and hardwood hammocks to upland sandhills while on our trail system.
Camp Longleaf’s campus has a 3,500 square foot gathering hall that can seat up to 90 guests. This indoor and air-conditioned space is perfect for meals, family gatherings, or business meetings. Retractable glass garage doors and a wrap-around porch offer the perfect space to enjoy the camp scenery. The Gathering Hall also provides a space for meetings or movie nights with a professional grade projector and audio system. Even more, the Biophilia staff can prepare group meals in the hall's spacious kitchen.
Camp Longleaf has five cabins which hold 10 campers each (8 twin bunks in the main cabin area plus a private room that sleeps 2). Additionally, there is a sixth handicap-accessible cabin which can house 8 total campers (6 twin bunks in the main cabin area plus a private room that sleeps 2). Each cabin has built-in bunk beds and in-cabin bathrooms to make showering and getting ready a breeze! Our cabins were designed with the Florida heat in mind, so each building has dual air conditioning units to keep them cool at night and during afternoon rest times. In true southern fashion, our cabins also have a front gathering porch where campers can relax and enjoy their serene natural surroundings.
Fire Circle: All of our cabins are connected by deck walkways to our central gathering location, the fire circle! Stargazing, fireside talks, and s'mores will be some of your group's favorite memories.
The Tangle Arena: Nothing is better than a little group competition! Get your team out on the Tangle's 30 x 80 foot turf field for volleyball, soccer, or a game of your group's creation. The fun never ends under the Tangle's motion sensor lights in the cool Florida evenings.
Bounce Houses: For the young of age or the young at heart, we have bounce castles and obstacle courses for you! These inflatables are available upon request.
Other outdoor fun includes swings, tetherball, and a gaga ball pit!
