Summer Camp #1

The first week of summer camp at the Audubon Center at Francis Beidler Forest is half over. Campers have already worked with snares and traps, learned wildlife observation skills, painted with sand, designed pinch pots, navigated with a compass and determined north using a stick, created dreamcatchers, tried to make fire, decoded the unbreakable World War II Navajo code, designed jewlery, and immersed themselves in the spectacular beauty of the virgin, old-growth cypress-tupelo swamp (see images from boardwalk)! Animal track identification, weaving, medicine bags, and canoeing are still to come!

There are still a few openings available in the final two weeks (July 7-11 and July 14-18), so call 843-462-2150 now to reserve your spot!
