Samboree is a statewide campout open to all. Florida currently has two Samborees a year; a Spring Samboree in April and a Fall Samboree in November. A camping adventure on a grand scale – all done by State Staff and volunteers. A multiple day event with an emphasis on fun and meeting with new and connecting with old friends!
Our Fellow Good Sam Members,
It is with a heavy heart that we announce the passing of Linda Voyton today. Linda was our State Treasurer for many years where she served with a smile and encouragement to everyone she met.
Debbie and I had the pleasure of knowing Linda for twenty something years and were amazed at her strength, energy and determination to make sure everything was exactly right. When her husband Charlie got sick, and she could not attend our spring Samboree, she gave us envelopes marked for each day to make sure everything went just as smooth as possible. After Charlie passed away, she still continued to camp and enjoy her Good Sam Chapter and friends until her sickness prevented her from doing so, but even then, she was able to attend this years Spring Samboree in Okeechobee staying in a cabin instead of her camper and enjoying all the activities and camaraderie of her Good Sam family.
Our hearts are breaking but we know that now she is cancer free and once again in the arms of her beloved Charlie, meanwhile chasing after Elvis when Charlie is not looking! Fly high Linda until we meet again!
Please note that, upon consultation with Linda’s family, Linda specifically requested that no memorial service be held.
WHAT IS A GOOD SAM “SAMBOREE” ALL ABOUT?
There are major events like opening and closing ceremonies, three nights of entertainment, and two nights of Sambo (Bingo). There are also all types of Indoor and outdoor game competitions. A varied Morning Hospitality menue with coffee and donuts, sausage biscuites, or biscuits and gravy, A Free hotdog lunch and an ice cream social. There are vendors of special interest to RVers, seminars, special products for the ladies and crafts.
The Florida Samborees are unique from many other states. We are known for our Golden Wedding Ceremony, with vow renewals, where we celebrate the 50th anniversaries of couples that are attending the Samboree.
We pride ourselves on being a friendly, outgoing group and encourage new campers to attend. You need not be a Good Sam member to attend but we challenge you to leave without wanting to become a member! We have local chapters from all across the state who camp together on a monthly basis and we are sure they would love to have you come to the Samboree and will invite you to camp with them when you get back home!
“THE CAMPING EXPERIENCE IS ONE OF A KIND! IT IS A SAFE HOSPITABLE ENVIRONMENT FOR THE WHOLE FAMILY”
