Youth Summer Camps
Families have two options for summer camp with the City of Greer: Camp Greer and Camp Needmore.
Camp Greer is a fun, high-energy camp in which kids stay on the move. Each camper is in an age-appropriate group of 15-25 children. Campers enjoy field trips for such activities as skating, bowling, water park fun and jump zone activities. The camp is based at Victor Gymnasium, where campers participate in team games, arts and crafts, or free play. Lunch is provided through the school district or campers may bring their own meal.
- Drop-off: Begins at 7:30 a.m.
- Pick-up: No later than 6 p.m.
- Cost: $50 for residents / $70 for non-residents. This cost includes all field trips and lunch. If your child requires extra money for concessions, etc. on trips you can send that with them to camp and give to a counselor.
Our counselors are made up of local teachers and college students and we typically have six-seven counselors present each day.
Camp Needmore offers many of the same amenities as Camp Greer mentioned above, but is held at the Needmore Community Center and is a partially grant-funded camp. Families must qualify for this camp based on their income level. The cost of this camp is $20 for City residents and $40 for non-residents.
Camp Dates & Registration
Both camps operate annually from early June until early August, closing the week of July 4 in observance of the holiday. Registration for both camps is open to children ages 6 through 12 and begins in early March for City of Greer residents and mid-March for non-residents. Registrations are accepted at the City Operations Center located at:
446 Pennsylvania Avenue
Greer, SC 29650
Registration requires a submitted Summer Camp Packet (correctly completed) and first-week payment. A $10 deposit is required to hold a spot for any additional week that a child will attend. Our camps register by the week to take in account for vacations, specialty camps, etc. After registration is complete, you will have until late may to pay the rest of your camp balance. If your balance is not paid by the late May deadline, your child will be removed from camp and a refund will be sent to your house.
Please be aware that all spots for Camp Greer and Camp Needmore have been filled for 2019. If you are interested in next years camp, please reach out to us in February 2020 for packets and dates for registration (spots sale out quicker than Rosie's Hotdogs in downtown and also quicker than The Clock's sweet tea goes down on a warm day!)
