Salkehatchie Summer Service Needs Your Help

Salkehatchie Upstatecropped-Salkehatchielogobanner-300x61

Salkehatchie Summer Service Camps are now registering online. There were over 3,400 campers last year, and the over 40 camps this year are filling up fast.
Go to to find registration information. Camp fees this year are $230.00 per camper.


The Upstate Camp will be hosted again this year by Lee Road UMC in Taylors. The camp is in progress of finding five to six homes to be repaired this year with its 70 campers. Several local churches have stepped up to the plate to help Upstate Camp have a great week. We are asking you and your church how can you help with this ministry? The camp can always use donations of money and goods. We feed about 85 people 3 meals a day for the week of camp, this year July 11 – 18, 2015. Our kitchen coordinator plans good meals to keep everyone well fed. Can you help with either the cooking a meal or providing funds to purchase supplies? We give the campers a snack in the morning and one in the afternoon. We use roofing materials and other construction material that we have to purchase. Does your company offer a discount for church activities? One thing everyone can do, please pray for all those involved in the camps this summer. If you need more information, please contact Steve McGahee at 864-884-9949 or Trace Silvers at 864-354-8679.
