Hilton Head Summer Camps

Children having an outdoor adventure with the Island Rec Center

In the not so far distance, you can hear Alice Cooper singing, “Schools out for summer.” But don’t worry moms, school does not need to be blown to pieces. Be a rock star mom by providing mental and physical wellness for you child. Rock out summer camp—Hilton Head style.

The Top 5 Reasons to Send Your Child to Summer Camp:

  1. You child will be physically active and mentally challenged.
  2. Your child will experience success, become more confident and feel more independent.
  3. Your child can explore new hobbies and interests that will have a lasting positive impact.
  4. Your child will have free time for unstructured play and have the opportunity to enjoy fun, experiential learning without the perceived constraints of achieving grades or participating or competing with kids of other levels.
  5. Your child will learn social skills and foster new friendships.

For the 2013 summer, Hilton Head Island offers a diverse spectrum of camp options. Learning camps include bible studies, math, robotics, science, and writing. Sports camps include baseball, basketball, cheerleading, dance, football, horseback riding, golf, martial arts, paddleboarding, running, sailing, soccer, swimming, tennis and volleyball.
