Lake Keowee Summer Camp

Sessions

Welcome to ABC Care's 4th year of providing wonderful weeks of Summer Camp fun at High Falls County Park! Our summer camp dates are June 25th - June 29th 2018.

We are excited to welcome back Ms. Meghan Murphy as our Camp Director. Her husband Dave, a middle school teacher will be working with Ms. Meghan. Their twin sons, entering 6th grade will be enjoying our summer camp fun, also! Ms. Meghan has over 19 years of summer camp experience. Please scroll down our web page to read her biography and her husbands background also.

ABC Care staff are selected for demonstrating leadership, enthusiasm, compassion and a respect for children and their families. 98% of ABC Care summer camp staff work for ABC Care year round. The remaining staff are public and private school teachers who return to ABC Care each summer. All staff have had both a state and federal criminal background check. Staff complete between 10 and 24 hours with Core of Knowledge training throughout the school year. ABC Care staff receive training specific to summer camp prior to the start of camp. This includes First Aid/CPR, water safety (for swimming & all types of boating) and health and wellness training from our Health Supervisor. In addition, ABC Care staff complete 6-10 hours of training on supervision of children, field trip safety, emergency preparedness and developing a safe and FUN atmosphere for each day at camp.

We will utilize High Falls County Park situated on 44 acres bordering beautiful Lake Keowee, just 10 short miles from Seneca. At 18,500 acres, Lake Keowee offers room for exploration and water adventures! Campers will enjoy the level sandy beach, large open swimming areas and time on the water in kayaks, paddle boats, and paddle boards!

When not out on or in the water, campers will have a blast on the playgrounds or playing on the putt putt golf course, sand volleyball area, kickball or softball field.

Campers will even take a hand at fishing off of the pier each week! The High Falls County Park setting is a premier location for our summer camp activities.

Our 2018 Camp is located in beautiful Oconee County, South Carolina! We are providing two amazing fun filled weeks, Monday through Friday. ABC Care's Lake Keowee Camp is open to campers in 1st grade through 8th grade. Our campers will enjoy countless hours of water activities, water sports and field trips for grades 4th through 8th.


Our campers will enjoy countless hours of water activities, water sports and recreation.
