OFFERING 5 weeks of “adventures” to include: A Photographic Safari of Charleston, On finding Swamp Fox, The History of Baseball (we film and play ball), The Charleston Harbor (to include the Harbor Pilots and a trip out to the harbor), and finally ART Walk, as we visit art galleries and the Vendue Hotel.

Starting on Monday – Friday each week!  June 10 start date – check out our list and dates and time on our calendar, plus on the Kids Guide to Charleston, SC.

TO EXPLAIN: The Orange Grove Charter School offers us school buses in the summer to help transport our students, as each week has many field trips. SC State Law does not allow us to “RENT” a van to transport. NOTE: The SC Port Vehicles are mini buses and they have supported us by providing transportation.

Orange Grove Charter School also offers a breakfast and lunch each day, plus snacks for our students within the price of the camp/week. There is early drop off available also. Parents may send extras if they choose to do so. Water bottles always.

Our camps end the week of July 15-19. (Harbor Pilots – another great Charleston Harbor adventure, complete with a random pirate)

HOWEVER – we are invited now to hold a week of exploring and adventures in Beaufort, SC and to work with and learn more about the new National Park & Monument – Reconstruction/Beaufort – the Second Founding of America. Last summer, we traveled to Beaufort to capture Robert Smalls’ story, and this summer we are now involved with their schools and also the Town of Beaufort and the ReconstructionBeaufort.org – project. (You will find A Backpack Journalist listed as a collaborator).

July 22-26, 2019 are the dates, and more info to come on this. During this week all students will be working in a high tech lab (6 IMACS, and a sound studio) and doing alot of hands on storytelling and filming. If your student has an interest in expanding their experiences, please let me know! This week will have lodging expenses and parents are invited to go along! It’s an exciting adventure to be at the beginning of a national park and providing content and learning!
