Swim! Surf! Kayak! Fish! Kiawah’s kids get out on the water with the Kiawah Island Club’s GoKiawah summer camp.


Kayak Kiawah

GoKiawah Campers ages nine to twelve arrive at the kayak dock in the Cassique neighborhood. Counselors lead the kids south through tidal creeks and into the Kiawah River. The group disembarks on the inland side of Captain Sam’s Spit to swim, look for shells, and play games. 


Fish Kiawah

Campers ages nine to sixteen spend the day on the water with Captain Elliot, fishing in the tidal creeks and rivers around Kiawah. Captain Elliot possesses a wealth of information about fish and bird species and Lowcountry ecology. Fishing trips embark from Rhett’s Bluff Boat Dock.

Surf Kiawah

Surf camp is led by professional surfer Kyle Busey of Carolina Salt Surf Lessons. At The Beach Club, Kyle leads nine- to sixteen-year-old members through the basics. Campers learn how to paddle and push up into position, the fundamentals of stance and safety in the water.
