The 2nd Year Program was developed back in 1977 to further the Camp Wildwood experience. Twenty campers from the previous year are invited back to attend a program based in the Upstate of South Carolina. The professional staff and counselors that select these 2nd year campers believe that they possess leadership, maturity and dedication, which if nurtured, leads to the wise use of natural resources. 

During this week, the 2nd Year campers will experience challenging but fun adventures. The goal is for them to gain a deeper understanding of themselves, their relationship with other people, and the natural world.


Our second year staff if composed of Laurin Beckroge, Cody Bishop, and Bebe Harris. Each one of them possess of unique skillset that allows them to connect with the second year campers, but also guide and take care of the twenty campers.

Camp Wildwood is made possible through the support of the Garden Club of South Carolina, Hampton Wildlife Fund and the South Carolina Department of Natural Resources. We are grateful for the tremendous amount of support we receive every year.
