Camp Wildwood of South Carolina open for 2014 registration
Camp Wildwood is a high energy hands on, outdoor environmental camp for 10th through 12th grade students and is in session June 15-21 at Kings Mountain State Park. At Camp Wildwood, students acquire the knowledge and appreciation needed to protect and wisely use our natural resources.
Camp Wildwood helps young adults grow by providing a supervised, positive environment that has safety as a primary commitment. Wildwood encourages self-reliance, self-discipline and independence in an outdoor setting. Self-confidence is built through cooperative relationships with adults and peers. It is also a place to learn about the diversity of our natural resources and the variety of career choices within the environmental field.
Daily activities include instruction in fisheries, forestry, firearm safety, orienteering, first aid, soils and wildlife. The hands on classes are conducted outdoors by professional resource staff members. Afternoon activities include sports such as softball, swimming and volleyball. Dances, campfires and skit night are some of the most popular evening activities.
Camp Wildwood is sponsored by the Garden Club of South Carolina, Inc., the South Carolina Wildlife Federation, the Harry Hampton Memorial Wildlife Fund, South Carolina State Parks and the S.C. Department of Natural Resources.
For more information, call Camp Coordinator Dan DuPre at (803) 720-9299 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
