Camps

Pre-CF aged students have an opportunity to learn and have fun at College of Central Florida camps. 

Educational Camps

Each year when area schools close their doors for summer vacation, CF opens its doors to welcome hundreds of students for summer day camps. Sports and arts camps are the traditional CF summer camps loved by parents and students.

Most camps are held in during the summer; however, some are offered during school breaks and throughout the year.

Get ready for a great summer!.
