Summer Camp

 Make Your Escape to Montage Palmetto Bluff

Words by Zoe Knox

You step outside and the sun wraps you in a warm hug. Sparkling water laps gently as birds flutter and chirp, providing a soundtrack to the morning. Vibrant trees provide a canopy of shade over the lush grass beneath your feet. You close your eyes, breathe in the fresh air, and immerse yourself in the peace of the moment. Welcome to the lowcountry. Welcome to Montage Palmetto Bluff. 

Nestled on the banks of the May River in South Carolina, Montage Palmetto Bluff is a dreamy escape—an adult summer camp that simultaneously brings back memories and creates new ones. It’s a choose-your-own-adventure that always ends in smiles. It’s the vacation you’ve been waiting for. 

The 20,000 acre community can host getaways of any size—from a couple’s retreat in a stunning suite to a family reunion in one of the luxurious homes. Scenic views lay in wait outside the windows, inviting you into an outdoor adventure. Grab a golf cart for an afternoon on the 18-hole Jack Nicklaus Signature Course. Enjoy an active day on the water kayaking, paddleboarding, or fishing—but if you’re in relaxation mode, a yacht cruise provides a peaceful escape. Lay out by the River House Pool after a morning yoga class in the state-of-the-art Fitness Center. Bring out your competitive spirit with a game of pickleball or tennis, or head to the Palmetto Bluff Shooting Club for a game of Sporting Clays. Take a guided tour with the Naturalist and reconnect with the natural environment, then bike down the trails for a picture-perfect picnic. You don’t have to imagine your perfect day—you can live it out.

There’s even more fun to be found on holidays. Kick off the summer on Memorial Day Weekend with an Oyster Social and Fore & Aft Memorial BBQ, or come during the 4th of July and run in the Freedom 5k before enjoying the Moreland Oyster Roast and Lowcountry Boil. There are always exciting holiday events planned that bring an extra spark to an already enjoyable stay.

When the summer weather starts to tempt you to take a break from the office, follow your heart to Montage Palmetto Bluff. Step away from your responsibilities and immerse yourself in charming southern hospitality—a moment to recharge, refresh, and revive your spirit. Come back to life in the lowcountry.
