The End of An Out of This World Summer!

08.25.23 | Posted in: Community, News, The KOP Way

We hope the summer has been a great time spent for you all! We have concluded our 6th annual KOP Summer Camp and this year was a tremendous amount of fun with an extraordinary amount of hands-on learning with 30 enrichment partners that allowed our 200+ students to enjoy a myriad of activities like art, science, new outdoor activities, golf, surfing and so much more!

Below is a snapshot of our summer programming and some highlights of our time at camp, I hope you have a moment to take a peek and see what we’ve been up to. 

Thanks for always supporting our mission and ensuring this piece of our work continues to thrive and grow.


This year we were proud to work with Charleston Civil Rights and Civics (C3)  to launch an inaugural five-day, immersive program designed to show high school students the often-ignored civil rights history of the Lowcountry.

The program consisted of a class of 20 rising high school freshmen and sophomores from several different Lowcountry schools who were able to experience the Avery Research Center, the newly opened International African American Museum (IAAM), a bus tour of downtown Charleston, a trip to Beaufort to experience Gullah Geechee culture, a visit the Cecil Williams Civil Rights Museum in Orangeburg and more!

We hope you will visit the Gibbes Museum before august 25th to see the self portraits our students made during this highly enriching experience!

Gratitude Shoutout: President Hsu

On our last day of camp we had a very special guest reader, President Hsu of College of Charleston! We’re grateful to have such a wonderful partnership with The College and thank them for allowing us to call campus home.

This crew of our littlest campers was so excited to have him and enjoyed his choice of literature, ‘We Are All Alike, We Are All Different’ – a valuable lesson and reminder to us all. We were honored to gift him a special piece of artwork drawn & illustrated by one of our very own Coach David and student Skylarr White. Thank you again to President Hsu for joining us!
