Summer Camp Kicks Off at SC State House

Humanities Foundation kicks off its 2019 “Pinckney Group” Summer Camp Program with a field trip to the state capital.  In June, the children of Seven Farms Apartments located on Daniel Island began a three week summer camp program provided by the Humanities Foundation. The program offers a diverse array of activities, such as educational tours, arts and crafts, sports and recreation, science and technology experiences and mentoring. 

The summer camp program was established in response to the merciless acts upon the Emanuel Nine of the Mother Emanuel AME Church in Charleston, SC and is dedicated in memory of the life of Reverend Clementa Pinckney.  Rev. Pinckney was also a member of the South Carolina Senate, representing the 45th District and was a strong supporter of education and youth development. This year, Humanities wanted to do something memorable for the campers to highlight Pinckney’s significance and remember the Emanuel Nine with a trip to their state capitol. Accompanied by Sergeant at Arms, Chuck Williams, the campers were given an educational and historical tour of the State House.  Williams demonstrated his duties with the State Sword, the symbol for the South Carolina Senate, which is placed in a cradle on the Senate rostrum whenever the Senate is in session. The campers were in awe! The group also gathered around Senator Pinckney’s desk to experience what it was like for Senator Pinckney to demonstrate his legislation and fight for stronger education and means of youth development in South Carolina. In remembrance and extended efforts, the group accessed the Senate balcony catwalk and was proudly photographed with Senator Pinckney’s portrait. “I was delighted to have the children from the Humanities Foundation summer camp join us at the State House for a tour. Our young people should all be given the opportunity to learn about our state’s government and visit our state’s capitol, and I am glad to have organized that opportunity for this wonderful group and next generation of leaders. The work the Humanities Foundation does for families that may be in need here in South Carolina is critically important, and treating their summer campers to a field trip to Columbia is just one of the many ways they strive to make life a little better for those they serve,” State Senator Nikki Setzler (D-Lexington), who facilitated the campers’ trip to the state capitol. The group then recharged at Jason’s Deli for lunch and further cooled off with the deli’s popular “ice cream machine” before their next stop at EdVenture Children’s Museum. Where the campers exuded their energy with some recreational activities such as playing on Eddie and engaging themselves with hands-on exhibits to independently build and construct knowledge of their own.

Enhancing the lives of the youth residing in our communities has become an important initiative. It is our goal to link economically disadvantaged, at-risk children to positive role models and leaders. We want to encourage our youth to become a positive asset to the community in which they live. In providing the summer camp program, space is created where children, many of whom might not be able to attend such a camp otherwise, can learn skills and receive the support that can help them grow into healthy successful adults. Paying for childcare, youth education and learning activities can be a struggle for families living below the area median income.  The camp program also allows families to allocate their resources towards creating more financial stability.

Humanities would like to thank Senator Setzler, Williams and staff at the State House for providing an experience the campers will never forget. As well as,  Davis Frawley and NAI Columbia for their support and sponsorship of the field trip. Please enjoy the video!
