Marcus Whitfield Youth Camp

2013 Marcus Whitfield Youth Camp

"Preparing For The Battle"


The Marcus Whitfield Youth Camp is a non-profit day camp sponsored by the Greenville County Sheriff's Office and staffed by Sheriff's Office personnel.  Its mission is to aid rising 7th-9th graders in making sound decisions and reaching their potential.  The camp features physical and mental challenges, huge games, fun team building activities and lots of hands-on learning opportunities.  Our goal is to provide these students with some additional tools to help them not only to make good decisions, but to be better equipped to succeed at school, at home, and in society. 

Our theme this year is "Preparing For The Battle" and it is all about challenging kids to rise above societies' and even their own expectations of themselves in their teen years.  This week will be all about pushing past “normal” and encouraging these kids to set and pursue big goals.  This week won’t be easy but these students will have a blast working, learning, and growing together.  

The 2013 Camp will be held at Camp Buckhorn (located within Paris Mountain State Park), 2401 State Park Road, Greenville, SC 29609.  The camp will run from July 15th – July 19th from 8:00am until 5:00pm.  You may drop your child off as early as 7:00 a.m. at the camp.

There is NO CHARGE for this camp and lunch and snacks will be provided.  Parents are, however, expected to be responsible for transportation to and from camp each day.
