Tucked away in a corner of Camden’s Trinity Apartments complex is a 2,500-square-foot building where a lot of learning goes on. Students from all over Kershaw County and even Columbia, from kindergarteners to rising middle-schoolers, came to Trinity Resource Center not only to keep focused on their ABCs and 1-2-3’s, but music, manners and other life skills. Around 100 students attended the center’s six-week summer camp designed to reinforce concepts learned during the previous school year.
