This day camp will begin with small sessions taught by certified naturalists at the Palmetto Outdoor Experience facility. Lunch will be held by the river (bring your own bag lunch). Afterwards, students will have the opportunity to tube down the river to the Riverwalk Park and Amphitheater. For safety reasons, one parental chaperone will be required for every two students. Students will be briefed on safety before getting on the water and life jackets will be provided. Please keep in mind that pick up times will be dependent on the rate at which the group travels down the river. The trip is generally a 3-hour trip, but changes with river conditions.
During this camp, the students will begin their day by touring Riverbanks Zoo. The group will have lunch following the tour (bring your own bag lunch) and then be transported by bus to the Palmetto Outdoor Experience facility. Stations will be set up for small group interaction with certified naturalists. The group will then walk to the riverâ€™s edge for fun outdoor games. Parents are welcomed to attend the camp for $30 with their children. (Fee includes ticket and shirt)
