Enjoy seeing faces of those who are growing in their skills, and becoming more self-reliance with each course.

We love being able to offer our Gallery as a benefit for students who forgot their cameras, or who were unable to get photos of themselves.

Students are welcome to save photos for their “personal” use, please contact us if you intend to use images for other uses.  If you do not wish to be filmed or photographed just let us know.

What to Bring What to Bring?

The majority of class time is spent outdoors, especially during spring, summer, and fall. We recommend packing as if you were taking a camping trip the length of your course. Please consider the weather and climate in South Carolina as temperatures can range from hot to cold, and conditions can change quickly from dry to wet. We have compiled a required packing list and a general list of items to bring.
