Reach Out Camp
August 6-9, 2017
Located in Aiken County, South Carolina, Camp Gravatt offers boys and girls a Christian-centered, community-based summer camp experience, focused on demonstrating God's unconditional love to every camper. ROC is a special session offered free of charge through
community partnerships and the generosity of individual donors and volunteers to children in first through ninth grade with one or more parent incarcerated.
The Camp Gravatt program and activities include most of the traditional things associated with camp--archery, arts and crafts, canoeing, hiking, swimming, challenge course, campfires, songs, skits, as well as time for worshiping and developing camp community. A chaplain will be on hand throughout the session to help children who are having a difficult time dealing with the stress of having a parent in prison. For all activities, the philosophy at Camp Gravatt is to provide a fun, rewarding experience for each camper.
Camp Gravatt staff members work to nurture and develop campers' self-esteem, rather than their competitive expertise in a particular sport or skill. The goals of the camp experience are for campers to grow spiritually, make friends, share in an affirming, Christian camp community, and have a lot of fun in a safe and healthy outdoor environment. Registration is taken on a first come, first served basis through referrals from local service and
law enforcement agencies.
