Staff Guidance Helps Children Grow

Southern Conservation Trust’s primary goal is to offer children a positive camp experience in an outdoor environment where they can appreciate nature, engage in healthy outdoor  activities and be introduced to environmental stewardship.  Our camp staff encourage campers to reach their own conclusions while coaching them to trust themselves in making the right choices. Empowered young people can spark a desire to make a difference!  Caring adults are always present to provide the attention and guidance young people need to grow, to discover the wonders of nature, make new friends and have lots of healthy, active, outdoor fun. Under the guidance of the Camp Coordinator, staff plan each day carefully to promote a memorable experience. Guest presenters will compliment activities providing a wide range of opportunities for nature discovery.
