Camp Rise Above campers enjoy paddle boating, fishing at James Island County Park (WCIV)

Campers at Camp Rise Above get to do new and exciting things, such as fishing and riding around in a paddle boat.

For the campers that have serious illnesses, life challenges, and disabilities, it's a way to safely enjoy these activities at James Island County Park.

Counselors and volunteers help make sure the campers have fun—even adding interesting beard accessories.

"The counselors help us do whatever we want to do," said one camper. "Everyone here is looking out for you and watching you."

The reward? Seeing the happiness of the kids doing something they’ve never done before.
