The Georgia Sea Turtle Center (GSTC) invites campers to enjoy fun-in-the-sun activities, field-based adventures, and unforgettable sea turtles. Each day will focus on sea turtle biology, conservation, and the threats that these animals face. Campers will explore the many habitats of Jekyll Island: from freshwater ponds to the maritime forest to tidal marshlands down and to the beach accompanied by the myriad of turtle species and wildlife found in coastal Georgia. Campers will interact daily with GSTC staff, volunteers and AmeriCorps members during this unique week of learning and adventure.

Daily instruction from a PGA Professional will cover putting, chipping, pitching, full swing, on-course instruction, and etiquette. Daily instruction will be tailored to meet your child’s needs. Whether it’s their first time on the green or they are well-versed in the game, this camp is great for all levels of golfers.
The Jekyll Island Tennis Club invites campers to improve tennis skills and help develop their personal style of play. Each camper will get daily on-court instruction personalized for their needs. Staff is made up of USPTA professionals and teaching assistants with college level experience. Campers are grouped based on individual skill level not based on age.
