Director of Camp Woodie - Ed Paul
My name is Ed Paul and I am the Camp Director. I was born and raised here on Lake Marion, and like many of you grew up hunting and fishing with my parents and friends. My life has been greatly enriched by the outdoors, and the friendships and connections that have been formed through these experiences. For many years I have been a part of the South Carolina Waterfowl Association and Camp Woodie as a camp counselor, a shooting instructor, a wood duck technician, a farmer, and as a hunting guide. Though, I have been many things here at the Association, I have longed to be a bigger part of the Wildlife Education Center and Camp Woodie and this wonderful opportunity has finally presented itself. I played four years of collegiate baseball at Francis Marion University, and graduated with a business degree. My education, sports and outdoor experiences have prepared me for the challenge of leading the Wildlife Education Center and Camp Woodie. I am married to Leslie St. John Paul. She also loves the outdoors and working with youth.
