From July 26-July 30, 2021 and July 18-July 22, 2022, we held Camp Impact, a joyful, fun-filled weeklong summer camp experience for children ages 6-12 who were actively experiencing or had previously experienced homelessness or were from low income families. Through a combination of traditional indoor and outdoor camp activities, like swimming, games, and Arts & Crafts, our campers, the majority of whom had not previously attended an overnight camp, overcame fears, tried new things, made friends, and grew in confidence.
Thank you to all the volunteers, counselors, staff members, and donors who made this camp possible!
Camp Impact campers participated in Horsemanship Experience with Carolina Therapeutic Riding, went swimming in our zero-entry pool, made masterpieces at Arts & Crafts, kayaked, canoed, and fished in Peter’s Pond, and played Outdoor Games.
In addition to their daytime camp activities, our campers enjoyed evening activities. These included a special dance performance from Dreher High School’s Dance Team, a concert with Sarah Adams, Blake Weinbach, and J.T. Bruce, an Olympic Games Night led by Rob Simmons at Results Fitness, a Glow Dance dj’d by Troy Fite, and a Cabin Night.
