From the Principal

C Dog
Greetings Bulldogs, behalf of the administration, faculty, and staff of Camden High School, I welcome you to another exciting school year. It is our vision and goal to give every student the education and skills necessary to be a productive, valuable young adult of character both here and in life beyond high school. Our goal is for you to be College or Career Ready when you graduate. We look forward to developing positive working, ongoing relationships with you and your families. Our job is to provide you with the most outstanding high school experience that Kershaw County can provide.

It is our vision of Camden High School that we provide a world class education to all of our students. We strive to provide experiences in all avenues of a student’s career leading to successful adulthood and citizenship in our community. That involves academics, athletics, leadership, service to others and community, extracurricular activities, and the arts. By participating in these activities and becoming involved in our school, you will have a more successful high school experience.

However, this experience will take a coordinated effort on many fronts. Our teachers will strive to provide engaging, thought provoking lessons. Our administration will provide a safe and orderly environment for you to prosper. Your parents will support you and the teachers in helping you achieve your goals and aspirations. You will need to work hard, be in school, behave as a young adult of good character, and give your best effort in all that you do. It is through this partnership that you can truly meet your dreams, and we can become as our alma mater says, “the best ole high school anywhere”.

With Bulldog Pride,

Daniel H. Matthews
Principal, Camden High School

Bulldogs Lead The Way

Bulldogs Lead the Way
Camden High School is very committed to community service and involvement.  In 2014-2015, students and staff raised in excess of $50,000 for various organizations.  Our Student Council provided the leadership in raising $24,000 which was the largest amount collected during United Way Spirit Week.  Our Relay for Life team led the way to collecting over $10,000 for the Relay for Life event.
In addition, school clubs and organizations raised funds for the annual Dig Pink Breast Cancer Awareness and Research, for the Palmetto Animal Assisted Life Services (which provides service dogs for military veterans), and for the Kershaw Community Medical Clinic. 
Thousands of pounds of canned foods were collected by members of Beta Club (which benefited the Camden Community Ministries' food bank) and by members of the Camden High Gospel Choir (which benefited Food for the Soul's food bank).  Ashley-Tri-Y sponsored "Jelly Up" in February to collect jars of jelly to donate to CCM. 
The CHS Key Club and Spirit Club sponsored a basketball marathon in March which featured members of the 2009 State Championship Basketball Team.  The proceeds from the event were presented to the Kershaw Community Medical Clinic. 
DeSaussure Tri-Hi-Y's annual Dodge Ball Tournament has raised thousands of dollars and benefits the Make-A-Wish Foundation. 
Our Commitment to Excellence permeates our dedication to community service. Students donate over 5,000 hours of their time each year to various community groups.  The Varsity Football team volunteered at Habitat for Humanity homes.  Dozens of athletes and other students participate in Read Across America each year at area elementary schools.  JROTC cadets volunteer at the local animal shelter and participate in the Adopt-A-Highway program.  The PAWS art club creates artwork for community displays.  This year PAWS created stone mosaics for the local animal shelter.
