Pacolet Milliken sponsors FENCE Day Camps

Published 5:23pm Thursday, July 25, 2013

Enrollment is still being accepted for July 29 art camp

Pacolet Milliken Enterprises Inc. sponsored the 2013 day camps put on by Foothills Equestrian Nature Center, or FENCE, located in Tryon.

The five weeklong day camps available for children ages 5 to 12 included a horse camp; intermediate horse camp; two full-day environmental camps; and art camp.

“We are proud to make it possible for over 100 children to attend FENCE day camps this summer,” said Richard Webel, president of Pacolet Milliken Enterprises Inc. “It is critical that today’s children learn about our environment, their relationship with it and how they can be good environmental stewards. This starts with early education and interaction, which is provided so well by FENCE day camps.”

The nature programs at FENCE are designed to increase awareness and appreciation of the natural world; promote understanding and respect for the environment; and teach conservation and wise use of nature’s resources on which we all depend for life and livelihood.
