Camp Success is a state-of-the-art day camp for South Carolina students 
entering grade 7 or 8. The program helps students develop the creative, 
innovative thinking skills that are behind all the latest technologies.

The end result is more young people who are excited about professional careers 
that use 21st-century technology to solve big problems and make the world a 
better place.

The creativity, innovation, and leadership cultivated at Camp Success are not 
only essential tools for students to thrive as highly skilled professionals - 
they are the building blocks South Carolina needs to successfully compete in 
the global economy.

help qualified students. Please indicate your desire for financial assistance

Success will receive a scholarship to cover the full costs of Camp Success,
