Members of The Rotary Club of The Villages helped Ranger Courtney at The Girl Scouts Camp Wildwood on Saturday May 1, 2021.  

Camp Wildwood in located Wildwood, Florida.  This camp offers 589 acres of original Florida – piney woods and palmettos in sandy soil, huge live oaks with Spanish moss, marshlands and a lake. The campgrounds include an array of activities and amenities, from swimming in a Junior Olympic sized pool to Equestrian Center. Options are endless! Campers stay in cabins, tents or dormitory style buildings and come for both day and overnight programs.

The program site worked at, under the supervision of Ranger Courtney Hatch, is called The Homestead.  This site is used to teach girls pioneering skills.  Because of the pandemic, this program site hasn’t been used in over a year and needs to be prepared for summer programming. Rotary Club of The Villages members put together a small storage shed for tools cleared bushes, overgrown vines & trimmed trees around the garden area.

Camp Wildwood is owned and operated by Girl Scouts of West Central Florida serving over 16,300 girls in Citrus, Hernando, Hillsborough, Marion, Pasco, Pinellas, Polk and Sumter counties.
