Airport High School's Student Council presents check for nearly $30,000 to help support Camp Kemo

West Columbia, SC 10/26/2022 - The Student Council of Airport High School presented a check this month for nearly $30,000 to Prisma Health Children's Hospital and Camp Kemo. Camp Kemo is normally held once a year at the Lutheran Church’s Camp Kinard retreat in the Batesburg-Leesville area of the county. Camp Kemo is a well-organized event that allows children with cancer to have as close to a normal summer camp experience as possible for these very ill children. Without Camp Kemo, the children might never enjoy the fun that children without health problems have during the summer months.

Each year, the Airport High School’s Student Government hold annual fundraisers to help children with cancer attend this summer camp. The event, a favorite tradition organized by Student Council, is a true community effort, supported by Airport students, administrators, teachers, staff, families, and local businesses. Since the event first started nearly 30 years ago, an estimated $600,000 has been raised for Camp Kemo in just Lexington County School District Two’s schools.
