Summer camps offer learning and fun

By Pam Bryant

Children KayakingIndependence, responsibility, teamwork and learning how to make the right decisions are all part of summer camp. Clemson’s first residential summer camp was held in 1933 at 4-H Camp Long in Aiken.

Today, the Youth Learning Institute continues the tradition with Camp Sewee (marine science) in Awendaw; Camp Voyager (technology) in Pickens; 4-H Summer Camp in Summerton and Camp Wildlife (shooting sports and wildlife ecology) in Clinton. 

Camp registration opens each year in January, with sessions beginning June 10. By April, nearly 800 campers had signed up, with some openings still available.
