Charleston Summer Camps

Young Naturalist Kayak Adventure Camp

For the last 25 years, Coastal Expeditions’ kayak camp has introduced local kids to the beauty of the Lowcountry. Paddling from our 3 locations, we go to a different destination each day, allowing us to look for fossils and shark teeth on hidden beaches, swim in saltwater creeks and search for dolphins and manatees. Several of our campers have become guides at Coastal Expeditions!  Ages 8-13.

Tidal Trek

Join Coastal Expeditions’ Tidal Trek program for a week of adventures as we explore the outdoors of the Lowcountry. Whether you are interested in hiking, paddleboarding, kayaking, or just spending your days outside, you have come to the right place! Tap into the outdoors and advance your skills in adventure sports.  Ages 14-17.

Maritime + Paddle Camp

We’re collaborating with the Lowcountry Maritime Society to offer a camp experience that we’re very excited about.  In the mornings, campers will work with LMS leaders to build and- by the end of the week- launch wooden row boats.  In the afternoons, Coastal Expeditions guides will take over, teaching campers the basics of kayaking, paddleboarding and our beautiful local ecosystems. Ages 9-14.

“To describe our growing up in the lowcountry of South Carolina, I would have to take you to the marsh on a spring day, flush the great blue heron from its silent occupation, scatter marsh hens as we sink to our knees in mud, open an oyster with a pocket knife and feed it to you from the shell and say, ‘There. That taste. That’s the taste of my childhood.'”
-Pat Conroy (1945-2016)
