This summer was the launch of Camp United, a summer learning program focused on improving the math and literacy scores of local students. Camp United was held at Loris Elementary School between June 24th and July 22nd. 60 rising first and second-grade students benefitted from small group learning and guided instruction. This completely free program was funded by United Way of Horry County and from the support of grants from Tidelands Health and the Waccamaw Community Foundation. Camp United was completely free for all students attending. This included free transportation, breakfast, lunch, and supplies.
At United Way of Horry County, one of our main impact areas is Education. We want to help prevent the summer slide, a tendency for students to lose some of the achievement gains they made during the previous school year. Horry County students should be able to meet their educational goals and be on track with their grade level. We have developed Camp United in order to help students reach their full educational potential. We can’t wait to share the improvements that were made possible by Camp United.
