The Lowcountry Down Syndrome Society (LDSS) will host their ninth annual Camp Buddy summer camps in Effingham and Chatham Counties this summer.

Effingham Camp Buddy will take place from Monday, June 26, to Friday, June 30. Chatham Camp Buddy will take place from Monday, July 10 to Friday, July 21.

The camp curriculum is designed by occupational, physical, special education and speech therapists with the goal of helping children retain the educational milestones they achieved over the course of the past school year.

“We strive to help the children in our program bridge the gap created over summer,” said Savannah Camp Buddy Director Pam Hussey. “They will be better equipped to begin the new school year with the skills they gained in the previous year fresh on their minds.”
