A pool? Check. Horseback riding? Check. An ice cream shop and s’mores? Check, check. At just two years old, my daughter might be a little too young to take advantage of all these awesome summertime activities at Sea Island, but if you have older kids and you’re looking for a last-minute family getaway in July or August, this place could be the perfect fit.
Just off the southeastern coast of Georgia, set on five miles of private beach, your little ones can participate in fun-filled programs like Camp Cloister. Or the Coastal Discoveries Program, which offers daily adventures ranging from archery and kayaking and to beach eco-labs, fish dissections (really!), and gyotaku fish printing. The Survival Skills After Dark program takes place on Friday nights, and kids can test their survival skills such as building fires, tying knots, pitching tents, and reading a compass — then celebrate their accomplishments roasting marshmallows by the fire. There’s also tennis, squash, nature walks, cooking classes, and sea turtle excursions. For a real splurge, check out the cottages.
This place sounds like such a find. Let us know if you make the trip!
