Serving Thousands
Every Summer

Salkehatchie is more than just a church outreach program, a volunteer group, or just another summer youth camp. Salkehatchie is faith in action.

From Saturday-Saturday, volunteers experience more than just a week of hard work. Salkehatchie helps families feel comfortable and secure in their homes through the dedication and love of volunteers, without a single full time or paid staff member.

~200 Homes

are updated every summer by Salkehatchie volunteers.

$1 million

Spent on supplies for one summer’s worth of projects

63,000 Campers

Have participated over the last 40 years.

6,000 Families

Have received assistance since Salkehatchie began.

Experience Answered Prayers

Salkehatchie helps families in need who live not in distant lands but in neighborhoods and communities near the volunteers who serve. Supported entirely by its participants, communities it serves, and the United Methodist Church Conference of South Carolina, young people spend one week serving underprivileged families, learning about themselves, the world, and God.
