Video: Snakes, Geckos, Carnivorous Plants and More with Nature Al

Ok, gentlemen. Al Scharnberg, otherwise known as “Nature Al”, put this video together for you from his house in Charlotte, NC. It includes several of the animals that were here last summer at camp!

Check out the video here:

When Al is not at camp, he teaches 8th grade science and social studies at Alexander Graham Middle School in Charlotte. He is also working this summer with underprivileged kids grades 5 through 8 doing socially distant animal presentations and nature activities.


About Robert Danos

I first came to Mondamin from South Louisiana as a camper in 1979 and spent the next 9 summers here all the way through our Counselor In Training program. While attending Tulane University, I was a counselor each summer and have now been on the year-round staff for over 30 years. Before joining the year-round staff, I spent time both in teaching and child psychology. .

My wife, Susan, spent eight years on staff at our sister camp, Green Cove, and we have two girls and a boy all of whom have attended Green Cove and Mondamin, respectively.
