Airport High puts on a week of fun for a good cause

WEST COLUMBIA, SC -- Airport High School's annual Camp Kemo fundraiser is in full swing this week, March 4-9. There's a great slate of fun on tap to raise money, a few dollars at a time, for Camp Kemo.


This is the 25th year of the event.


There are opportunities to throw pies in the faces of teachers, exhibit your ride in a car show, smash fruit, pet puppies, play bubble soccer, eat lunch at a food truck rodeo, participate in the Ultimate Nerf War and much more. Last year, students raised just over $56,000 to send kids with cancer or blood disorders to the camp, affiliated with Prisma Health's Children's Hospital. This year, the goal is $60,000.


And not all events are on campus. Spirit Night dinners each night of the week are opportunities to gather for a meal, with a portion of proceeds going to Camp Kemo.
