A Place to Shine
Designed from the heart for children, teens, and adults facing serious illnesses and other physical, mental, and emotional health or life challenges, Camp Cole is a fully accessible camp and retreat facility located just outside Columbia, South Carolina.
Camp Cole's First Summer
During our first summer at Camp Cole, we served over 500 campers with illnesses, disabilities, and life challenges. Among our campers were children who have cancer, have experienced or are currently experiencing homelessness or are from low-income families, have Down syndrome, autism, sickle cell disease, and many other life challenges. This video perfectly sums up the joy that was experienced during Summer 2021 at Camp Cole.
Giving others a place to shine!
Come Shine with Us!
At Camp Cole, everybody shines, which is why we intentionally collaborate with organized camps, also known as our Camp Partners, to deliver year-round world-class experiences with world-class care. Our 40-acre campus is an idyllic home-away-from-home for everyone who visits and a safe place to try new things, grow in independence and confidence, and share friendships with people with similar challenges and capabilities.
Our commitment to transforming the lives of every camper we meet can be evidenced in the quality of our developmental programming, our state-of-the-art Medical Care Facility, our expert teams of caregivers and thought leaders, and our warm and inviting culture that encourages others to shine.
We invite you to our special gathering place where groups can connect, share, encourage, and shine.
Camp Cole is located at 1571 Crossing Creek in Eastover, just 15 miles from Prisma Health Children’s Hospital.
