Local Info   Camp Hints   Camp Rules

Where do I go to check-in?
During the summer months, you will check-in at the Sea Shack or with the night watchman. During the off-season upon your arrival, you will call the staff member on duty to let them know you are here. (843-651-2223, option 6).
My group is leaving money for the Children's Home Fund. What should I do with it?
First, thank you!  Our ministry to children’s homes is dear to our hearts.  You can either leave the money in the children’s home collection box in your dorm or you may bring it to the Sea Shack.
How can my church make the Top 20 in contributions to the Children's Home fund?
While we don’t reveal the dollar amount that it takes to get on the Top 20 list, we so appreciate the efforts of everyone to make this a trip of a lifetime for the children’s homes that come our way.
Can our group utilize the Chapel summer staff for our retreat?
Yes!  Please consider inviting our summer staff to share their testimony or a devotion with your group. This could be done a variety of ways: one staffer at each meal time or at your worship time just to name a few. Contact a camp director to make arrangements.
What is my group responsible for providing during our stay?
You are responsible to provide your own food, toiletries (including toilet paper, soap, etc.), for more information, refer to our Camp Hints section.
Do you take credit cards?
We do NOT accept credit cards for lodging. Please be prepared to pay with check or cash before your group departs.
We DO accept credit cards in the Sea Shack.
Do you sell ice?
Yes! The Sea Shack sells ice year round by the bag or the scoop.  Bring your own cooler for the scoop purchase.
Can my group start a tab in the Sea Shack?
Yes! A Sea Shack tab can be started for your group but this needs to be paid before you depart and it must be paid separately from your lodging bill.
Can my group leave leftover food for the GCC staff?
Yes! They would love it!  Bring any leftover or unopened food to the Sea Shack in disposable containers.  Please do not leave food in your dorm kitchen.
Do you have any sports equipment for rent?
We have frisbees, basketball, volleyball, soccer balls, and some other miscellaneous equipment that you can check out for free at the Sea Shack. We would recommend you bring your own sports equipment if possible.
Can we get additional meeting space?
Every group on campus will have adequate meeting space based on the size of your group. If additional meeting space is desired it is based on availability but there is an additional charge for this space. These requests are received on a first come, first served basis and may not always result in a group receiving additional space.
What is early registration?
Early registration is an opportunity for you to make reservations next summer during your stay this summer.  You must sign up while you are here and this reservation is for the same stay period and the same size dorm as you are in this summer.
What time can I check into my dorm?
4:00 pm or after. There are no exceptions to this rule. You will have no access to any part of your building until 4:00 pm.
Does our group have to come to Sunday Services?
Yes, we require all weekend groups to attend the Worship Service (10:00 am). NOTE, Sunday Services only take place during the summer season which is May – Labor Day.
What if some of my people dropped out at the last minute? How does this effect my bill?
You are responsible to pay for the “minimum” for the building you reserved. If you have more than the minimum, then you are billed for that number of people.
Do you have lifeguards on the beach?
No. However, the local police typically patrol this part of the beach on a regular basis.
Does you're campus have wi-fi?
Yes! Wi-fi is for chaperones only!  Group leaders may visit the Sea Shack or the office to obtain a password.
Do you have laundry facilities on GCC campus?
No, but the GCC staff will be glad to give directions to the closest laundromat.
Do you have grills on campus?
Yes, we have four charcoal grills in different locations on our campus.
