Camp SHIELD will be held September 20-22, 2019, at Camp Kinard in Batesburg-Leesville. Camp SHIELD will be an opportunity for the entire family to remember and honor their loved one, to grieve together outside of the funeral in a relaxed, safe and supportive setting. Families will be allowed to express emotions, share their grief, connect with others and learn positive coping skills.

Camp SHIELD is offered free of charge except for a small $50 administrative fee per family.

Camp Kinard occupies 325 acres 30 miles outside of Columbia and its unique facilities provide a great retreat experience in a nurturing, fully–accessible environment.
