Camp Discovery

Blythewood, South Carolina

Grant amount:


Camp Discovery engaged 50 campers this summer in a pilot GLOBE experience composed of multiple GLOBE Learning Activities and surface temperature measurement and water monitoring of a stream that flows through the camp. Equipment was provided to conduct the measurements along with materials and supplies for the Learning Activities. An assessment of the pilot will be made at the end of the summer and the activity continued into the school year where the camp typically reaches 3,000 pupils in grades 3 – 6.


Youth Learning as Citizen Environmental Scientists assists and rewards the implementation of inquiry-based, experiential science education where students do science and contribute to understanding of our environment through recognition and financial reward programs.

Grants range from equipment and supplies for taking environmental measurements to recognition and support for students presenting their research projects and working for pervasive inclusion of student research projects in science teaching.
