Orangeburg summer camps accepting registration

Summer camps are getting ready for their "busy season" and sign ups are open.

ORANGEBURG COUNTY, S.C. — It's summer camp season in Orangeburg County. 

In Branchville, registration is open for Camp Edisto, a faith-based camp aimed to help youth strengthen their relationship with Christ. Campers will have a morning and evening chapel.

Each camp session is one week long starting with first and second grade on June 17, going up to high school ages.

“We do have a lot of children that make the commitment to give their life to Christ at the end of the camp and they are counseled through that decision," said registration coordinator LeAnna McBee.
