Camp PRIDE is a three-week day camp for young persons 11 – 15 years old hosted by the Horry County Police Department and staffed by School Resource Officers. Camp Pride is a free camp for all campers who attend. We will have two camps this summer. The first camp this summer is scheduled for June 9th – June 27th and the second camp is scheduled for July 7th – July 25th Monday through Friday from 8:00 AM to 4:00 PM. Slots for the camp are limited. (First time applicants are considered before repeat campers). The first week of camp will be held at St. James Middle School and the following two weeks of camp at Coastal Carolina University.
It is the mission of Camp PRIDE to develop discipline, resourcefulness, and teamwork in each camper through a highly structured educational and adventurous camp experience. Campers will learn the principles of CAMP PRIDE through individual effort and role modeling. Parents will have the opportunity to help shape the camp experience for their child by expressing specific goals for individual camp objectives.
