Pleasurecraft Engine Group employees helped children at Camp Kemo in South Carolina enjoy a day on the water.

Pleasurecraft Engine Group employees recently volunteered during Camp Kemo’s Lake Fun Day, providing and driving a towboat powered by PCM so children could enjoy a day on Lake Greenwood in South Carolina boating, tubing and swimming.

Camp Kemo is Palmetto Health Children’s Hospital’s annual weeklong summer camp for cancer patients ages 5 to 18 and their siblings. Staffed by Palmetto Health’s physicians, nurses and volunteers, the camp gives children the opportunity to do such things as hike, swim and boat.

“The Pleasurecraft team is passionate about serving our local community, and Camp Kemo is one of the events that we have the privilege of being a part of every year,” Pleasurecraft president Mark McKinney said in a statement.

“I personally enjoy taking these kids out on the water and seeing them have fun on the boat. I am grateful to Camp Kemo for allowing us to take part in making a positive impact on the lives of these children and their families.”
