This week played host to a wonderful experience for our county. A mission group from Fort Mill, Moncks Corner, and surrounding areas, along with volunteers from Dillon, coordinated a sports camp for the children in the county.

The camp was hosted by Dillon Christian School and lasted from Monday through Friday afternoon. The leader of the camp was Greg Pendarvis, a former baseball coach at Fort Mill, who leads a ministry year around called Victory Sports. Greg and the host of volunteers led over 100 children through the week in various sports: baseball, softball, football, cheerleading, volleyball and basketball.

Also, the afternoon opened up a great opportunity for a vacation bible school full of fun musical and mission activities. Each morning opened with a presentation of colors that represented our life before God and each day closed with a story that told of the love of God and the proof that we have that Jesus is our Savior. As the week closed, Victory Sports saw 18 children come to know Jesus Christ as their personal Lord and Savior.

This week could not have been possible without the help of so many volunteers and churches. Many people gave their week to help with the camp as well as cook meals for the mission team. Thanks to so many parents who brought their children to join in on the great experience.

If you missed out this year, don’t worry. Plans are already being made for a Victory Sports Camp 2016 right here in Dillon, SC.
