Camp Wildwood gives participants a basic introduction to South Carolina’s wildlife and natural resources and provides an understanding of, and commitment to, the wise use and management of those resources. Camp Wildwood provides youth with the opportunity to grow in self-confidence and to develop initiative and leadership skills in a challenging yet supportive environment.

Campers take classes at Camp Wildwood in wildlife, hunter education, fisheries and forestry. A number of other traditional camp activities, such as swimming, kickball, volleyball, fishing, and nightly dances, are also part of the camp experience.

Camp Wildwood is made possible through the generous support of the Garden Club of South Carolina, the Harry Hampton Memorial Wildlife Fund and the South Carolina Department of Natural Resources.
