Each day of camp will be a new and exciting experience for our campers as no two days with KE Camps are exactly alike! Our days begin with Hello Camp, a morning meeting of sorts where, through an assortment of organized activities, campers and staff get to know each other, review the day’s schedule and sing our special camp song! Similarly, we will end our days with Goodbye Camp, a time for wrap-up activities and reflections, SMILE Bands, snacks, and “see you later’s”. The bulk of camp will be spent participating in a wide variety of activities throughout the day that may include:

Full payment is due upon registration. This includes a one-time non-refundable registration fee of $40 which includes 2 camp t-shirts. We accept ACH Payments and American Express, MasterCard, Visa and Discover.
If your child has special needs or will require extra assistance while at camp, please contact us before you enroll to discuss!

All requests for cancellations or changes must be made in writing to our office via email at firstname.lastname@example.org. Cancellations made by June 20, 2021 will be refunded in full (less the registration fee). After that, there are no refunds. We will, however, always offer a credit towards a future week (if space is available) or for next summer.
Covid-19 Safety Policy
As we enter into Summer 2021, we are fully prepared to take on the challenging circumstances surrounding Covid-19 - we did it in Summer 2020 and we can do it again! The health and safety of all campers, families, and staff members continues to be our absolute top priority. As we are all well-aware, protocols and guidelines surrounding Covid-19 are fluid and as such, we will adapt and adjust our policies, as needed, leading up to and during the camp season.
We encourage you to enroll early as spaces will be limited this summer and we expect that camp will fill up quickly! We are sure you agree that a summer spent at camp will be more needed and meaningful than ever this year.

Meet Your Camp Director
Greetings Campers and Families!
My name is Alexa Keiser and I am excited to be the director for Camp Dunes West! I have always loved camp, having gone to a few camps as a child and teenager but also as a counselor when I was finally old enough. Every summer, I found myself either trying a new camp, or going back to the ones I loved the most. My goal for this summer is to make this camp experience the one you want to return to again.
I began working as a counselor at a small program back home in Maryland when I was 17 and I immediately fell in love. I loved the children I worked with every day, and I loved getting to work with kids of all ages. After my first summer at that program, I was lucky enough to come back as a head counselor for 4 more summers, working with children ages 3-12.
That program helped shape me into the person I am, and the educator I have become. During the years I worked as a camp counselor I was also studying both Early Childhood Education and Elementary Education at Charleston Southern University. I graduated in 2017 with honors and have since gotten my Gifted and Talented Education endorsement through CSU and Berkeley County School District.
Currently, I work as a 5th grade teacher at Sangaree Intermediate School and I also serve my grade level as the math curriculum lead planner. My favorite thing about teaching is getting to build relationships with my students. I love getting to know what they are interested in and building my lessons around those interests and their specific skill sets.
My classroom sometimes can sound loud and crazy to outsiders, but inside there is not only learning going on but true experiences and what I hope to be lifelong memories. There is no such thing as a “normal” day in my class- one minute I might be dressed in a pioneer costume teaching my students about the Oregon Trail, the next minute I could be talking in a British accent reading my children The Chronicles of Narnia- you never know what exciting thing I might do next!
After a challenging year of online learning and restrictions, I cannot wait to spend the summer with you playing outside together in the Charleston sunshine and working together to solve problems and create new things,
