Camp Rise Above

We are proud to partner with Camp Rise Above, a unique non-profit organization that provides fun, life changing camp experiences to children with serious illnesses, life challenges, and disabilities. They believe that all children deserve to experience the magic of childhood, regardless of their medical status.

Camp Rise Above offers day camp experiences for children ages 6 to 17 at James Island County Park. Each 2-day camp is filled with arts and crafts, archery, challenge course activities, wall climbing, fishing, pedal boating, and Splash Zone waterpark visits! For more information on Camp Rise Above, volunteer opportunities, and more, please visit Camp Rise Above.
