A waterfowl weekend
At-risk youth from Camden learn lessons at Camp Woodie
Boys at Camp Woodie
Boys from Camden gather for a meal at Camp Woodie on April 26. The at-risk youth enjoyed shooting clays, canoeing, nature hikes and stargazing at the camp in Pinewood which serves as headquarters for the S.C. Waterfowl Association. It was the first chance for many of the boys to enjoy nature without cellphones or city lights.
There’s a good chance that at least one, if not most, of about 20 teenage boys from Camden experienced their first real taste of nature recently. The group of at-risk youth, accompanied by Family Outreach Ministries’ Brian Mayes and ALPHA Center Director Paul Napper traveled to Camp Woodie in Pinewood the weekend of April 26. At the camp, which serves as headquarters for the S.C. Waterfowl Association (SCWA), the boys canoed, shot at clay targets, learned about plants and animals on nature hikes and did a bit of stargazing.
