School’s Out? Camp’s In!
The Watershed Ecology Center provides a variety of camps to keep children busy as they learn in a fun way about the
world around them. During one week in June, campers participated in activities such as games, experiments, hikes,
crafts, artifact exploration and visits with live animals. It was an amazing week of fun and learning!

The Watershed Ecology Center’s mission is to collect, analyze and disseminate sound scientific information on the
ecology of the region. Special emphasis is placed on watershed conservation, education, water quality and the study
of organisms living in the area encompassed by a watershed. The center serves as a repository for regional ecological
information, providing education and research assistance to individuals, communities, local schools and governmental
organizations. The WEC is also dedicated to providing research opportunities for the facility and students at the University
of South Carolina Upstate and other regional institutions. The Watershed Ecology Center is located in the Horace C. Smith
Science Building on the campus of the University of South Carolina Upstate.
