A group from The Lake Murray Salkehatchie Camp is spending the week renovating homes in the Irmo area.


Irmo, SC (WLTX)- Lake Murray Salkehatchie camp is all about a spiritual journey for youth and adults as they reach out to families in need of a safe, warm and dry home.

"In this particular house we call it rejoice for Mrs. Roberts!," said Jeff Radenbaugh.

The homeowner, Mrs. Cynthia Roberts, says health issues over the years left her unable to care for things that needed to be done around her house.

"When you are used to working it is hard to ask but I made the call," said Mrs. Roberts.

Her home is one of five in the Irmo area that will be getting renovated by more than 50 campers from several churches involved with the Salkehatchie Camp.

The campers will spend the week working in the homes during the day and will attend worship service at Union United Methodist Church in the evening.
