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!

2024 Summer Camp

Registration opens Tuesday, December 5 at 8am.

Junior campers. Mega summer fun!

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).

Each day will be filled with creative and physical activities with plenty of adventure for good measure! Join us for one week, or all eight!

Morning camps are offered for Tiny Timbers and morning + afternoon camps for Little Critters. For a full-day experience, parents may register Little Critters for corresponding morning and afternoon sessions in eligible weeks. Be sure to pack a lunch for this option!

Tiny Timbers must be 3 years old and Little Critters must be 5 years old before the first day of camp. All campers must be able to change wet and dry clothes and use the restroom independently. Campers will be picked up and dropped off at the Greenway's Lake Haigler entrance.
