Mission Statement

kidsThe Sertoma Youth Ranch was organized in 1974. Since then over 1,650 + youth groups have utilized the Ranch for overnight camping.

Sertoma Youth Ranch is a non-profit organization founded by Sertoma Clubs in the Tampa Bay Area. It is run by a Board of Directors, elected from Sertomans and Ranch members.

It is our mission to provide a rustic outdoor recreational area for the children of Florida. We believe that our children should inherit this small haven of Florida in its natural state. Sertoma Organizations and other youth clubs are encouraged to utilize the Sertoma Youth Ranch with programs to encourage their national heritage and culture.

We strive to keep the land clean and safe so that future generations may enjoy this outdoor recreational area. Sertoma Youth Ranch will always be available to all organized groups of children, including the physically and mentally challenged, at no charge.

As a concerned individual, you care. The challenges faced by today’s communities draw your attention. They are overwhelming to the individual. Yet caring, committed people, banded together, can and do make a difference.

It’s called the Sertoma difference…
