Start Thinking Summer Camp!

The Audubon Center at Francis Beidler Forest offers a choice of three week-long summer day-camps during June and July. Francis Beidler Forest contains the largest remaining stand of virgin, cypress-tupelo swamp in the world. This is the perfect setting for stimulating a love for nature!

With a Native American theme, campers will become amateur naturalists themselves by engaging in science, hands-on activities and crafts. The tentative schedule is shown here.

The programs for the summer camp are geared for grades 1 through 6. The camp day will last from 9:00 am until 2:00 pm. Please call Beidler Forest at 843-462-2150 to request an enrollment form and to secure a place for your child in the week of your choice or send an e-mail to

A copy of the enrollment form can be downloaded here. $85 per camper, $75 each additional child in family; scholarships available. Space is limited to 30 children per week.

Session I: June 23-27
Session II: July 7-11
Session III: July 14-18
