Camp Longleaf is an extension of the E.O. Wilson Biophilia center, founded in 2009. We have brought a traditional sleep away summer camp to the Florida Panhandle, in the heart of the Emerald Coast. At Camp Longleaf, we believe that summer camp should be a fun and inviting place for children to learn and grow in relation to nature. By helping children value the earth and its animals, they are able to better preserve, protect, and appreciate the wonders of the outdoor world. Our professional staff strives to provide a quality, safe experience for children in nature. We encourage our campers to engage in new physical and creative activities while developing meaningful relationships with one another. The Biophilia Center has a strong history of educating our local students and visitors about the importance of biodiversity in the hope to encourage conservation. We want to bring that same passion to our summer camps.
