It’s time to sign up for summer camp!

Summer is a particularly great time to be staying in a luxury house on Isle of Palms.  The weather is warm, the kids are out of school, and the water feels particularly divine.

If you’re coming to the beach, you very well may have kids in tow.

FYI, the Isle of Palms has a really terrific Rec Center.  It’s located at 24 28th Avenue, right in the middle of the island.   It hosts a variety of island events, like this past weekend’s Music in the Park.

The IOP Rec Center is open to residents and visitors alike.  They have ball fields  – soccer, baseball/softball – plus basketball and tennis courts.  There’s also an indoor gymnasium, fitness center and a very large outdoor playground for the younger ones.  Oh, and the Rec Center even has an off-leash dog park, with separate areas for small and large dogs.

In addition, summer is when they crank up summer camp and clinics, guaranteed to keep your kids active and entertained.

It’s camp of all kinds, grouped by age – general summer camp with a different theme each week, as well as art, acting, basketball, volleyball and tennis camps.

These, too, are open to both residents and visitors, and there is a tremendous variety from which to choose.

More on Summer Camp Registration

 

As far as summer camp goes, residents register first, then non-residents.

Non-resident registration is May 13 – May 17 from 7:00am – 5:00pm.  A $25 deposit is due at registration per week per camp.  Here’s a link to the registration form.

Summer camp and clinics tend to fill up very fast, so I’d suggest acting ASAP if you’re interested.  Here’s the page on the IOP’s website with all the pertinent details.

So while you’re here at the beach, why not check those kids into summer camp?  And be sure to call EP when you need to book your summer home base at the beach.

All best,
