Florida Elks,

Welcome to the President’s web page. Take a moment to navigate this website and learn about the many things our Florida State Elks Association does for kids, veterans and our communities. Explore the tools available to you as members to help with such things as membership recruitment. This website has been developed for your use. There is a lot of information and materials in the Elks Training and Resource Center sections. Check them out! 

Take a virtual tour of the camp. Our ropes course and climbing wall are unbelievable. Our 52 camper cabins and two beautiful, large, shaded pools make our camp second to none in this country. Our second major project is the Children’s Therapy Services. We are helping children develop and grow by offering free in-home therapy services to more than 500 children a week. Our therapists are treating more and more children with autism in addition to the physical and occupational therapy we already provide. 

Learn about our new Smith Conference Center. We hosted 91 groups this past year and we are constantly booking new groups. Revenue from our Smith Conference Center helps fund our major projects.

The website makes it easy to make monthly donations to the Harry-Anna Trust Fund. You can learn how we provide youth scholarships as well as programs to assist our military and veterans. Check out our Florida Ladies of Elks activities. For those who are not following us on Facebook, we invite you to like us at

Let’s use these tools to increase membership again this year. My motto is “Proud to be an Elk,” and with all the things we do for our communities, veterans and children, we have lots of reasons to be proud. And don’t forget, it’s for the kids.
