Several state parks have offered programming including service projects, historical programming, wilderness skills, hikes and so much more.

Sew Like a Soldier: Clothing is expensive, but in the past it was even pricier. Clothing had to be handmade and many people only had 1-3 set of clothes. So, how did soldiers on the march maintain their uniforms? Learn basic sewing, patching, mending and more!  Bring your water bottle! $10 per person.

South Carolina State Parks offers many programs & events to the public throughout the year.  Check them out here
