Camp St. Christopher has over 314 acres of beach, maritime forest and undisturbed salt marsh and is located on Seabrook Island. It is a secluded quiet summer camp property. Lodging includes Air-conditioned rooms, warm showers, and breakfasts. Due to the close proximity to the ocean, we will have easy evening walks on the beach. There is no light pollution, so it is a perfect spot for star gazing! Just a short drive to some local restaurants and we can enjoy an evening campfire near the dunes. http://stchristopher.org/
