About SC Jaycee Camp Hope:
Jaycee Camp Hope is a statewide residential camp for children and adults with developmental disabilities sponsored by the Junior Chamber of Commerce (Jaycees).  The camp offers individuals and families unique and entertaining opportunities near beautiful Lake Hartwell in Clemson, SC.  Jaycee Camp Hope also serves families by giving parents and caregivers a rest while their camper is at camp.

Campers develop independence through daily camp programs such as canoeing, crafts, overnight camping, archery, swimming and other activities.  Jaycee Camp Hope is the number one project of the SC Jaycees.  By raising support for Camp Hope, Jaycees are giving individuals in their communities the opportunity to go to camp.

The SC Jaycees have provided financial support for every camper attending Jaycee Camp Hope since 1969.  To date, the SC Jaycees have raised over $950,000 and supported more than 10,000 individuals.  The SC Jaycees were also instrumental in establishing the Outdoor Lab as a permanent home for Jaycee Camp Hope since 1975.
