Nestled in the trees near the Cabana Club, our Activity Center offers a variety of programming and an up-close (and sometimes hands-on) look at some of the inhabitants of Fripp Island. Feel free to stop in and meet Jimbo, a ball python, or Savannah and Veranda, our baby alligators or just to ask questions about the wildlife here.

Our staff naturalists work with both the Fripp Island Turtle Patrol and the local Audubon Club to help preserve the truly amazing creatures that call Fripp home. We love to educate visitors about these wonderful creatures so drop by and let us tell you all about them and the efforts being used to conserve them for future generations.

While Fripp is one of the very most beloved of all South Carolina Resorts, there is way more to Fripp Island life than most people realize. Come discover the wildlife with the assistance of our Naturalist and staff. All programs will meet at the Activity Center and space may be limited for some programs so plan on calling ahead to secure your spot. Make sure you sign in before the programs start so we can get started as soon as possible.

During the summer our recreation staff offers many programs from crabbing and learning about sea turtles to tie dye and movies by the pool. You can see descriptions of our summer nature and social programs, or contact us for the most recent classes and activities being offered.

In our off season, we offer a nature and craft activity daily. Join us for a nature tour of the island by bike or try out your artistic hand when you make a stepping stone to take home as a souvenir.
