Show your support!

The Camp Bayou Outdoor Learning Center is supported solely through volunteers, supporters, donations, program fees and an occasional local grant. We receive no subsidized government or corporate  funding. As such, all our funds are used to keep the gate and doors open; develop, build and maintain displays and exhibits; plus other more mundane expenses like phone service, and purchasing toilet paper.

We welcome new supporters but if you were hoping to receive a canvas tote or nifty backpack, we are sorry but we have nothing but our thanks to offer in return. The cost of purchasing even a minimum order of these items would cost money that we could be using to continue to build and erect trail signs, install solar panels or other possible projects that we have on our wish list. You can be sure that 100% your donation dollars go toward the operation of the Camp Bayou Outdoor Learning Center. Checks should be made out to Camp Bayou Outdoor Learning Center and mailed to P.O. Box 507, Ruskin, FL 33575-0507.

You can also leave a donation by simply shopping online through one of the cause shopping services such as iGive and GoodSearch .

If you are interested in becoming a supporter, please fill in the member form at the end of one of our newsletters which can be found on our website . Or donate online through our one if these options:

We are always looking for volunteers!

Please fill out and bring to Camp Bayou or email to Dolly at  and write 'volunteer inquiry' in the subject line.
