The ongoing COVID-19 pandemic has created many challenges. Like you, we are working to ensure the health and safety of family, friends and coworkers. SCWA is following all public health safety guidelines. Our Spring 2020 Camp Leopold programs have been cancelled, and we are working to reschedule schools for the fall. Some banquets are being rescheduled for the late summer and early fall. I am cautiously optimistic that Camp Woodie will be open for Summer 2020.
This is SCWA’s 34th year of operation, and thanks to your support, SCWA will weather this storm. The SCWA Team has worked hard to cut operating costs in order to keep all of our team members employed during this crisis. During this time, staff are working hard to improve the quality of our education and habitat conservation programs. We are using this time to make SCWA a stronger and more efficient organization.
I am amazed at the dedication of our frontline medical professionals. As a thank-you for their efforts, SCWA will be awarding 200 Camp Woodie scholarships to children of frontline medical professionals. These scholarships will be distributed by our 28 chapters across South Carolina.
As Abraham Lincoln once said, “The best way to predict the future is to create it.” Let us all work together to create a bright future for our families and our country.
