Camp Sertoma of South Carolina represents the joint efforts of an enormous number of people. From the inception of the camp in 1975 to the present time the partnership between South Carolina Sertomans and Clemson University has underscored the tremendous accomplishments that can be achieved when people of good will in civic organizations, academic institutions, business, industry and government join together to create something wonderful for the children of our state.
Each Sertoma Club in the state is a partner in the support, promotion and operation of Camp Sertoma. The clubs are asked to appoint a “Camp Sertoma Representative” who will serve as liaison with the camp as campers are identified and prepare to attend. The clubs also provide enormous support through their sponsorship of campers, fundraising efforts, memorial donations, assistance with camp maintenance during ‘work days’ and donations of items from the “Camp Sertoma Wish List”. Individual clubs and Camp Sertoma Representatives may be located using the club directory. The Camp Sertoma Board of Trustees is the elected governing body of the camp. The make-up of the board as well as their responsibilities can be found at the “Meet The Camp Sertoma Board” page.
The Clemson Outdoor Lab is an amazing and unique department offering unparalleled training in the area of camp management and operation. Moreover it is the day-to-day management team for Camp Sertoma and the other camps found at the outdoor laboratory. C.U.O.L Director Leslie Conrad, and her permanent staff have done an incredible job of maintaining a state-of-the-art camping facility and ensuring a “second-to-none” experience for children attending Camp Sertoma.

Although Camp Sertoma was founded and is supported by South Carolina Sertomans, the leadership of Sertoma, Inc. at all levels has recognized and encouraged the tremendous value and impact of our camp.
