The purpose of the camp is to teach young people how to be observant, inquisitive, sensitive, and resourceful. Discovery is the key to a fun learning experience, and each day we explore a different habitat - pond, creek, meadow or forest - to see what each area has to offer. Natural History is studied through observation, tracking, field experiments, and games. Campers are encouraged to record their experiences through drawings and other artistic expressions in their journals.

The Daughter's of Zion Cemetery (DOZ) was founded by a charitable society for African American women of the same name in 1873. The cemetery is also referred to as the "Society Cemetery" or the "Church Hill Cemetery." The earliest gravestone that we can read today is five-year-old Annie Buckner, who died in April 1873.

Loaves & Fishes Food Pantry exists to provide food assistance to families and individuals in need in Charlottesville and surrounding communities. One in six people in Charlottesville struggle with hunger. This struggle can have many effects – family members may skip meals or they may have to choose between food and other important expenses such as housing, utilities or medical bills
