Campers enjoying Camp Wet and WildGreenville Wet & Wild Camp is made possible through the enduring partnership between 4-H and Greenville County Soil and Water Conservation District. This week-long science education camp focuses on the natural world around us! From wetlands to wildlife, 45 campers experienced the beauty and complexity of aquatic and terrestrial ecosystems while gaining an understanding and appreciation for all things wet and wild. Due to increasing popularity, we offered 2 weeks of camp this year. In its 7th year, Wet and Wild Camp 2022 was held from June 27 – 30 (ages 6-8) and July 11-14 (ages 9-12) at Conestee Park in Mauldin, SC. Wet & Wild Camp activities begin in the clouds with the water cycle, dive into different water-based habitats, explore creatures above and below the surface, and teach how to keep our waterways clean, healthy, and happy!


Junior Master Gardener Camp was hosted by Roper Mountain Science Center July 18-29, 2022, and is made possible through a partnership with 4-H and the Greater Greenville Master Gardeners Association.  The Junior Master Gardener program is an international youth gardening program of the university cooperative Extension network. JMG engaged 14 children in novel, “hands-on” group and individual learning experiences that provide a love of gardening, develop an appreciation for the environment and cultivate the mind. JMG also inspires youths to be of service to others through service learning and leadership development projects and rewards them with certification and recognition. Children can get involved in exploring their world through meaningful activities that encourage leadership development, personal pride and responsibility, and community involvement. Youth involved in the program develop critical thinking skills, and the ability to identify community concerns and take action to address them through individual group projects.
