Did you know Trinity Center has 2 youth camps running simultaneously on property throughout the summer? These 2 camps are Camp Trinity and Sound to Sea.
You may have read in our recent posts that Sanders Point has been in desperate need of repair due to erosion. We are grateful that Trinity Center’s Sound to Sea staff have taken lead in Sanders’ Point restoration by organizing volunteer workdays and partnering with the NC Coastal Federation to repair the shoreline. In recent weeks, many volunteers throughout the community and on Trinity Center’s staff have put in 180+ hours into bagging oysters and planting marsh grass. A big THANKS to all that have helped and a special THANK YOU to Sound to Sea.
Yesterday, Camp Trinity staff came to support our Sound to Sea instructors and showing some love!
Camp Trinity, Sound to Sea & Housekeeping all coming together as a team!
Sara (housekeeping Department Head) and Ella from Sound to Sea makes a great team!
How do you bag oysters? PVC pipes placed inside mesh liners were used to help bag all those oysters! 1 person shovels while the other packs. Love it!
The mesh bags used around the PVC pipe must be measured and crimped to a specific size.
Once the tube is packed full of oyster shells, the PVC pipe/tube was removed. Ta – Da!
These bagged oysters are piled high onto the trailer and carted off to Sanders Point!
