Sandy Ridge, owned and operated by Girl Scouts of Eastern South Carolina, is our resident camp located in Bennettsville, SC. The camp is on over 400 acres of beautiful sand hills. Facilities include sleeping units, swimming pool, two lakes, watercraft, an archery range, sports field, a clay pit and an air conditioned dining hall. Sandy Ridge hosts GSESC summer resident camp program, troop camping opportunities, training, and outdoor events and overnights for girls and adult volunteers.

 

From September to mid-May, Sandy Ridge is available for troop camping trips. As of  August 2014, all site reservations for Sandy Ridge are made on-line, using the Active Works registration system. Detailed information about the reservation process and all that Sandy Ride has to offer for a troop camping experience can be found in the 2014-2015 Sandy Ridge Information Packet for GSESC Girl Scout Groups, which can be downloaded below. To get a detailed look at our accommodations, please check out a gallery of site photos here . 

 

Sandy Ridge’s 2015 summer resident camp brochure will be released on December 15, 2014. Summer resident camp registration will begin on February 2. 2015. An Early Bird Discount will be applied for summer resident camp registrations received February 2-9, 2015. A limited amount of financial aid is available to help girls have a summer resident camp experience at Sandy Ridge. The financial aid application will be included in the summer resident camp brochure. The application must be submitted to the North Charleston Service Center by April 17, 2015 to be considered.

 

Sandy Ridge will have an open house on May 31, 2015 from 12 p.m. to 4 p.m. This event will give girls and parents a chance to see Sandy Ridge’s facilities, personally meet the Camp Director, ask questions and register for camp if you have not previously. Make a weekend of it and plan to attend Sandy Ridge’s Spring Clean-Up Weekend May 29 to May 31, 2015.

 

A variety of animals call Sandy Ridge home because they are part our new animal program. We are always looking for donations of aquariums, animal cages, animal supplies, and animal food. Please contact the Camp Director at chuckiler@girlscoutsesc.org or 843-479-6814 to find out what is needed.
