Marcus Whitfield Youth Camp
The Marcus Whitfield Youth Camp is a non-profit day camp sponsored by the Greenville County Sheriff's Office and staffed by Sheriff's Office personnel. Its mission is to aid rising 7th-9th graders in making sound decisions and reaching their potential. The camp features physical and mental challenges, huge games, fun team building activities and lots of hands-on learning opportunities. Our goal is to provide these students with some additional tools to help them not only to make good decisions, but to be better equipped to succeed at school, at home, and in society.
