About Camp Flastacowo

Camp Flastacowo is located on Lake Bradford in Tallahassee, Florida. We create a space and program for youth aged 8-14 to gain experience and respect for the outdoors and others. Camp Flastacowo seeks to create a space where youth of different ages, abilities and beliefs can come together in the outdoors.

These ideals are built through experiences, including: kayaking, sailing, canoeing, challenge courses, arts and crafts, and outdoor education. Through these experiences, youth build self-confidence, awareness and acceptance of others, and spark a life-long participation and enjoyment of the outdoors.
