The PCP just wrapped up his third year of camp at Savannah’s Oatland Island Wildlife Center. He signed up for Amazing Animals and had a rollicking good time learning about all sorts of creatures through hands-on activities, creative crafts and wildlife investigations. The highlights of his week were crabbing off the dock and holding Checkers the snake!
I adore that he has the opportunity to attend this camp each year, as Sister and I attended the very same and much unchanged camp for countless summers. And if you’re visiting Savannah, the trails are open to the public year round with a small admission fee. There are often special demonstrations on the weekends as well and a story time for toddlers on Tuesdays. It’s a great place to entertain the littles for a few hours. If you go, definitely bring a cold drink and coat yourself in bug spray. I find early spring and fall to be the best time to visit.
After one last beach visit, a bucket of Daddy-O’s boiled peanuts and hours more of skim boarding and sandcastle building, we are on the road home so that I can throw together a fourth of July party in three days flat.
