Summer Athletic Camps Offer Youth Fundamentals and Fun

Local children ages 6-13 flocked to a baseball camp held by USC Salkehatchie in July, where they learned basic skills such as pitching, catching, and hitting. A basketball camp held on East Campus in Walterboro offered youth another fun summer option.

USC Salkehatchie sponsored several summer sports camps for children this past summer. Head basketball coach Travis Garrett ran two weeks of basketball camp in the gym in Walterboro; one for children ages 6-9, and one for children ages 9-13. Head baseball coach Bubba Dorman also ran a week of baseball camp on the baseball field in Allendale for children ages 6-13. These camps are great learning experiences for the young people and meet a need in the community, as well as serving as an athletics fund-raiser.
