About Gateway's After School / Summer Camp


Our After School and Summer Camp Programs offer an engaging, educational, and fun experience for children in our community. We have prepared an exciting schedule of activities to provide children with an environment that will aid them in their overall development, in their social, emotional, physical and spiritual growth, and work to instill a positive self-image as they grow and mature.

We pick up at the following schools:

Lake Murray Elementary

Ballentine Elementary

River Springs Elementary

Oak Pointe Elementary

In addition to after school programming, we also offer additional programming on days such as early release days and when the public schools are closed for in-service days and school holidays.  For more information, contact Debbie Grizzle at (803) 461-4829.
