Founded in 1974, the ranch is a non-profit organization whose mission is to provide and maintain a clean and safe outdoor recreational area for Florida’s children. The ranch is available for sponsored youth groups to use at no charge to them. The Sertoma Youth Ranch receives no major outside funding except for private donations and monies generated through various on-site events throughout the year. All net proceeds from Journey Fest will be used to help preserve the camp. For more information about the Sertoma Youth Ranch, visit
