SCFitMe is a program designed to assist schools with fundraising while promoting physically active lifestyles and wellness in our students, our schools, our communities and individuals throughout the State of South Carolina. As we know movement and physical activity are prerequisites to quality of life and this all begins with a healthy, active ME. During our May Madness, your students will have the opportunity to be active, help promote a healthy, active lifestyle and raise funds for a non profit “Mill Village Farms”.

Interested in a summer camp?
The Marcus Whitfield Youth Camp is coming to Berea High School July 8-12. The Marcus Whitfield Youth Camp is a non-profit day camp sponsored by the Greenville County Sheriff’s Office and staffed by Sheriff’s Office personnel. Its mission is to aid rising 6th-9th graders in making sound decisions and reaching their potential. The camp features physical and mental challenges, huge games, fun team building activities and lots of hands-on learning opportunities. Our goal is to provide these students with some additional tools to help them not only to make good decisions, but to be better equipped to succeed at school, at home, and in society. There is NO CHARGE for this camp and lunch and snacks will be provided. Parents are, however, expected to be responsible for transportation to and from camp each day. To register, please visit www.gcso.org, call 864-355-2071, or click here to download the application.
