Children attend summer camp

Recently Arcadia Plantation was the site of a free summer camp for children three to 15-years-old.

Most lived on Arcadia Plantation with some children from the city of Georgetown.

The week began cloudy with scattered showers. After the rain there was a picnic at Waccatee Zoo.

On Tuesday, Myrtle Beach State Park withstood the hurricane of Arcadia Summer Campers who left deep footprints in the sand and rode the waves like Hawaiians.

Wednesday was educational day; starting with a lecture by Bunny Rodriguez in Georgetown’s Gullah Museum. Next was an entertaining and historic presentation of Gullah lore by Ron Daise at Brookgreen Garden. Then the campers walked the zoo trail and enjoyed the shuttle for some viewing of fantastic statues.

On Thursday they greeted Huntington Beach with an African and Caribbean drum class, charcoal for chicken, franks and more smiling faces. There was supposed to be a “dry” walk down the beach; but everyone came back an hour or two later wet from head to toe.

Friday was Ripley’s Aquarium on Broadway at the Beach day.

Arcadia Plantation located between Georgetown and Pawley’s Island is the site of Saint Anne’s Baptist Church. This building was used as a hospital for slaves until the close of the Civil War and was rebuilt as a church in 1927 by Capt. I.E. Emerson, founder of Arcadia. The church is headed by Preacher Julius Gibbs.
