Silver Bluff Summer Camp

This was the 4th year that the Silver Bluff Audubon Center hosted one of the Aiken County’s series of summer camps. The camps are free to the children and run from 9-noon, Monday-Friday.

The series theme for this year was “Cultures Around the World” with the Silver Bluff camp focusing on early Native American and European pioneer life in South Carolina. The Audubon camp is always extremely popular. This year registration opened on a Friday and there was a waiting list by Monday! The images show: Trader George Galphin (Paul Koehler) with his pioneer neighbors Charlotte (Beth Smith) and her daughter Anne (Anne Bohnet); planting their bean, corn and squash seeds, which they buried along with a crayfish as fertilizer; and a walk through the woods, looking for edible plants and animals.
