And – For A Warm Reminder

Several years ago, a special project was undertaken by a former camper to help our kids remember their experience at Camp Sertoma. Through her efforts, special “Camp Sertoma Blankets” were designed and mad so they could be given to each child as a reminder of their time here.  Now, Sertoma Clubs are encouraged to provide funds for blankets for the children they are sponsoring but the Camp Sertoma of S.C. Board of Trustees has made the commitment to seeing that every child receives a blanket to remember their experience here.Camp Sertoma Blanket
