Who is ready for summer camp?
The Salvation Army is continuing to prepare for their Summer Day Camp, which starts June 13th and runs until August 12th. Those 10 weeks will be filled with all kinds of fun with field trips everywhere from the Charleston County Parks to the movies. There will be art, sports, and even weekly themes.
Breakfast and lunch will be included thanks to the Charleston County School District.
The kids will also get the chance to keep their heads in the books by participating in the Charleston County Library's summer reading program.
Camp is Monday through Friday from 7:30am to 6pm. It is for children ages 5 to 12 years old.
The cost is $85 for one child or $145 for two children for the entire 10 weeks. There is a $20 registration fee per child, but ABC vouchers are gladly accepted.
You can stop by 2135 Ashley River Road for a summer day camp application.
For those children ages 6 to 17, there is a chance to attend The Salvation Army Camp Walter Johnson for six days. The cost of this camp is $200 per child. Each day, campers build lifelong friendships, reconnect with nature, and participate in action-packed activities that help them face challenges, develop confidence, and learn valuable life lessons.
Unfortunately, not everyone can afford to send their kid or kids to this amazing camp…but that is where you can help! The "Send a Kid to Camp" campaign, is underway through June 18th.
Your donation makes a difference for children and their families - it can change lives.
