Greenville Wet and Wild Camp is a week-long science education camp focusing on one of our most precious resources: water! From waterfalls to wildlife, campers will experience the beauty and complexity of aquatic systems while gaining an understanding and appreciation for all things wet. Wet and Wild Camp activities begin in the clouds with the water cycle, dive into different water-based habitats, explore creatures above and below the surface, and teach how to keep our waterways clean, healthy, and happy!
Wet and Wild Camp is held from June 27 – July 1 at Pleasant Ridge Park in Marietta, SC. The day begins at 8:00am and lasts until 5:00pm. Parents are invited to join campers on Friday for a half-day and camp celebration.
The cost of camp is $150 for one child and $125 for each additional child from the same family, which includes all camp materials and healthy snacks. 4H members and children with parents employed by Greenville County are offered a $25 discount. Need-based scholarships are available for qualified applicants. Only one discount (multi-child family, 4H membership, County employee, or scholarship) may be applied per child. Registrations are limited and are accepted on a first-come-first-served basis, and it is encouraged to register your camper early to ensure he or she has a spot. Registration applications and payments are due by June 3.
Clemson University Cooperative Extension Service offers its programs to people of all ages, regardless of race, color, gender, religion, national origin, disability, political beliefs, sexual orientation, marital or family status and is an equal opportunity employer.
Need-based scholarships of $75 are available to eligible campers. Scholarships cover half of the cost of camp registration, which includes all camp materials and healthy snacks. Applications are due by May 1, and applicants will be notified of the scholarship decision no later than May 10. Note: registration is on a first-come first-served basis, so it is encouraged that you submit your application as early as possible.
