Greenway Camps

for the summer and during the school year

Camps at the Greenway

The Anne Springs Close Greenway offers full-day camp options to youth in Kindergarten - 8th grade when school is not in session. The Greenway's 2,100 acres of preserved land allows for hiking, outdoor play and nature activities for a unique camp experience. 

For more than 15 years, the Greenway has offered camps to the children of Fort Mill, Charlotte, Rock Hill, Indian Land, Lancaster and the surrounding areas. Nearly 5,000 campers come through Greenway camp programs, and many past campers return to work as counselors.

The Greenway gives children a chance to experience and celebrate nature. Campers end the week muddy, tired and full of memories made with new friends in the great outdoors!

Junior campers. Mega summer fun!

In order to offer the best, age-appropriate care, the Greenway divides its Junior Adventure Seekers into two groups, Tiny Timbers (Preschool - PreK) and Little Critters (Rising Kindergarten - Rising 1st Grade).

Both groups may choose between several themed weeks, which are listed in our camp guide. Each day will be filled with crafts, activities and plenty of adventure along the way. Pick your favorite theme, or register for all of them!

We offer morning camps and afternoon camps. For a full-day experience, parents may register Rising K-Rising 1st Grader for corresponding morning an afternoon sessions in eligible weeks. Be sure to pack a lunch for this option!

Children must be at least 3 prior to the first day of camp and able to change clothes and use the restroom without help. Campers will be picked up and dropped off at the Greenway's Lake Haigler entrance.

Summer Camp

Get ready for a week full of summer adventures, which includes kayaking, archery, crafts, fort building and more! Our Rising 1st - Rising 3rd Graders will experience a wide-range of age-appropriate activities, designed to help them build confidence and independence.

Campers will make new friends and memories while learning outdoor and teamwork skills. All Anne Springs Close Greenway camps aim to foster a love and appreciation of the great outdoors.

Adventure Seekers come to our Dairy Barn entrance prepared for a full day of camp fun. Learn more about drop off times and what to expect in our camp guide.

Adventure Seekers Summer Camp

Make summer memories and lifelong friends.

To facilitate new friendships and engaged participation, we divide Trekkers and Adventurers into two groups, both of which are to be dropped off and picked up from our Adventure Road entrance.

Trekkers in rising 3rd through 6th grades will enjoy kayaking, archery, mountain biking, fishing and more, in addition to age-appropriate lessons in wilderness and outdoor skills!

Adventurers in rising 7th through 9th grades will still have the opportunity to take part in many of the much-loved traditional camp activities, like kayaking, mountain biking, archery and more. Adventurers can also learn outdoors skills, such as pitching a tent, tying knots and orienteering, to help them become well-rounded outdoor enthusiasts.

Both Trekkers and Adventurers will develop teamwork, problem-solving and social skills as they complete engaging activities and make new friends. Campers spend a full day in camp, so please refer to our camp guide for information on how to prepare and what time to drop off/pick up.

Summer Camp

Our Leader-In-Training summer program is designed for those who are ready to begin the transition from camper to counselor by using their camp experience to help create positive experiences for younger campers. LITs assist the Counselors in leading groups of campers, and they have the opportunity to participate in many camp activities. LITs must be responsible with strong leadership abilities.

To Apply:

  • LITs must be age 14 or older prior to the first day of training.
  • Prospective LITs must sign up and pay the deposit like they would as a camper.
  • Applicants must submit their unique application and two letters of recommendation from non-family members. These will be reviewed by our Camp Director who may follow-up with more questions.

LITs will be required to attend a one-week training. See camp guide for training dates and additional information. After training, they will be required to volunteer for at least two weeks or more of camp.

LIT applications are currently closed. Check back later for details on becoming a Summer Camp 2024 Leader-In-Training!

Specialty camps are introduced here, but more information can be found in our camp guide.

Fish Tales (Rising 3rd Grade - Rising 9th Grade)

Explore the Greenway by fishing at different ponds and lakes each day. This beginner fishing camp will also include fun fishy crafts and even kayak fishing!

Advanced Fishing (Rising 5th Grade - Rising 9th Grade)

New this year, Advanced Fish Tales will provide an opportunity for campers to dive into more advanced fishing techniques, learning about more fishing knots, selecting bait, trying out fly fishing and expanding kayak fishing skills! Read our camp guide to learn qualifications and dates for this unique experience.

Mountain Biking - Intro/Basic (Rising 4th Grade - Rising 10th Grade)

Campers must be 9 years old prior to the first day of camp.
Join us for three days of instruction in technical trail riding, slow handling skills and proper positioning. On Thursday, campers will bike to the Fort Mill YMCA at the Recreation Complex, swim and return for a “show the skills” event for parents. Your child must already know how to ride a bike. Each camper must provide their own mountain bike that is a 24” wheel size or larger. Instructors: Patty Smith and Doug Satterwhite.

Mountain Biking - Advanced (Rising 6th Grade - Rising 12th Grade)

This three-day camp will review and perfect the tough spots of trails. We will teach derailleur adjustments while also sharing some racing secrets. To attend this camp, campers must currently race mountain bikes, have attended advanced camp before, or have attended regular mountain bike camp and been recommended by Patty or Doug to attend advanced camp. 

Equestrian Day Camp

Campers will not only learn how to ride, but also learn grooming and horsemanship while making new friends. Camp offers an optional Thursday overnight at the barn. Groups include:

All groups will play games, learn parts of a horse, saddles and bridles and will have a snack each day. As opportunities arise, campers will be able to help with farm chores, watch a horse get new shoes or see the veterinarian in action!

Week-long residential "sleepaway" camps are offered at Springmaid Mountain in the Blue Ridge Mountains of North Carolina. Campers, from Novice to Advanced levels, will improve their horsemanship and riding skills while making new friends who share their passion for horses.

Springmaid Mountain Resort

All groups will play games, learn parts of a horse, saddles and bridles, and, as opportunities arise, help with farm chores, watch a horse get new shoes or see the veterinarian in action!

Campers will also enjoy hiking, tubing, group games, an overnight camp out (weather permitting), other outdoor activities and a dance on Friday night. Campers will perform a demonstration at 10am on Saturday morning. Parents are responsible for transportation. Find more information in our camp guide.
