Updated:

Greyfield Inn invites guests to experience an annual tradition the entire family will cherish with the return of Island Camp from Sunday, July 14 through Sunday, July 28. For the third year in a row, Greyfield Inn offers the unique opportunity for families to vacation together and enjoy an Island Camp program designed to provide lasting memories in an extraordinary setting. Island Camp features a multitude of activities to engage youngsters and teenagers with educational and fun adventures; adults are invited to participate in activities alongside their young ones or to enjoy time in quiet relaxation while vacationing on Cumberland Island

 

Greyfield Inn guest camp leaders Charla and Allen Long have worked with countless children over 15-plus years in education. The Longs direct daily programming for children 5 years of age and older, including arts and crafts with ocean and beach creations, scavenger hunts, star gazing, island treasure scrapbooking, bee keeping, gardening workshops, kayaking, hiking, kite flying, tie dyeing, fishing – each providing interactive and educational fun. And no summer camp would be complete without a bonfire for roasting marshmallows. Daily planned activities keep children entertained from 10:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.; the activity schedule repeats on a three-day cycle. The schedule is designed for families to participate together or individually, and children and adults are welcome to opt in or out of activities based on their interest.

 

Recommended as an enjoyable, multi-generational experience, fun is in store for adults at Island Camp as well, with chances to visit the entire island on a guided kayak or canopy tour or head to the south end which features the Dungeness ruins, and an abundance of horses and other wildlife. History lovers can enjoy a trip to the north end, home to the quaint church where John F. Kennedy Jr. and Carolyn Bessette were married. While there, visitors can also see the home of Robert Stafford, the largest plantation owner on the island.
