What To Expect

What to expect

We are so excited to be offering Family and Group retreats for summer 2020! These retreats are designed for families and small groups who will be quarantining together at the Best Place on Earth.  Although we could not run regular camp sessions this summer, due to COVID-19 restrictions we believe that families can safely enjoy the Camp Carolina property, cabins, and delicious food while connecting with each other.

Each session will run for a minimum of 3 nights and includes breakfast and lunch “to go” and a selection of free “do it yourself” activities on site. Mom's, sister's, aunt's, uncle's, grandparents, and friends are all invited. There is also an option for some of our favorite off-site trips at an additional fee. We are not “living by the gong” with a summer schedule.  Families will create their own “all up time”, rest hours, activity schedules, and evening plans. We will have a select few Camp Carolina staff to lifeguard, clean, and provide you with delicious breakfast and lunches. The “do it yourself” activities on site will not be staffed with instructors unless requested on the registration form. 

We have designed our packages to be as basic or as detailed and customized as you would like-with optional activity add ons. Email kylie@campcarolina.com if you have any additional questions.
