Celebrate Earth Day by Supporting Environmental Education

What better way to celebrate Earth Day and do your part to preserve creation through helping educate the future generations on the environment, by running or sponsoring the 5K Run/Hike for the Barrier Island Local Outreach Program. This challenging and exciting course at St. Christopher Camp and Conference Center has received high praise from cross-country and 5K enthusiasts every year for featuring dirt roads, and narrow trails of the 314 acres of beach, maritime forest, and undisturbed salt marsh on Seabrook Island, SC.

Whether you are looking for a strenuous challenge, a great way to improve fitness, or a nice stroll on a Saturday morning, the Barrier Island 5K Run/Hike is for you. Hikers, dog-walkers, and others have applauded the beauty of the scenery, and a chance to fully appreciate all the creation on offer at St. Christopher Camp and Conference Center.

More About Local Outreach…

The more funds we raise with the 5K Run/Hike, the more schools and students we are able to reach and teach about God’s creation.

The Local Outreach brings environmental education to local Title 1 schools that don’t have the resources to send entire classes or school grades to St. Christopher for a multi-night field trip. Unfortunately, this group includes far too many of the schools right near us on the Sea Islands. David Gardner, Director of Environmental Education, and several staff Naturalists pack up the St. Christopher van with animals and wildlife native to the barrier island environment and travel to schools to share with students. You can only imagine what taking alligators, snakes, and turtles into schools looks like. The Barrier Island Outreach Program feels it is important to equip our next generations with the knowledge of the environment in which they live in. We do this at no expense to the schools visited, but entirely with the help of sponsorship and generous giving.

We need your help. Sign up today.
