SC after school programs, camps have loopholes

Posted: Updated:

In South Carolina, there is an exemption under state law that allows after school programs and summer camps to run without any state oversight if they're open only four hours a day or less than three weeks.

This means that many after school programs are not regulated or inspected by the Department of Social Services.

"They're not required to be licensed, they don't even register with us...no one is going in from the state to inspect," Leigh Bolick with the DSS said.

No inspection means most of the people and places that surround your child aren't held to any state standard.
