Abbeville County 4-H2O Summer Camp

Abbeville County
Ages 9-13

Activities & Skills

4-H2O camp engages youth in hands-on activities where they are exploring the outdoor world and studying their local watershed. Each day youth will learn about components that make up a watershed through science lessons, scientific equipment, and water quality testing.  We bring in guest speakers to teach about the lake systems or environmental careers, we get in local creeks to study macroinvertebrates and water life, and we learn about responsible water recreations (we swim and canoe!).  

Camp is held at Calhoun Falls State Park on beautiful Lake Russell.
