Charleston County Parks is holding Summer Camps this year, however, we have made several modifications to programming and activities and significantly reduced camper numbers due to COVID-19. We have had to cancel camp for some of those who had previously registered and those campers have been notified via e-mail. Likewise, campers who are still registered have also been notified by email. If you have a question regarding your camper’s status this summer, please call 843-795-4386 to confirm if their camp has been impacted by these changes.

Additionally, adventure and teen venture counselors are certified in wilderness first aid or wilderness first responder, while junior lifeguard counselors have Red Cross lifeguard training. The emotional and physical well-being of our campers is our top priority.
