Home Island Life Social Groups

Social Groups & Clubs

A large part of what creates Seabrook Island’s strong sense of community is the friendly interaction between neighbors. Every Seabrooker comes complete with his or her own unique mix of interests, talents and taste. Once people begin to see shared interests with fellow residents, they’re soon drawn to join—or inspired to start—a special interest or social group that suits them to a T.

Something for everyone

Explore your passion, or pick up a new hobby. Seabrook Island is home to many social groups that connect you with neighbors who share common interests, from the Seabrook Island Natural Natural History Group to Art Guild, Seabrook Island Photography Club, Garden Club, the Mahjongg Mavens, Book Club, and Turtle Patrol there is something for everyone!

We are always excited about new groups wanting to organize. If you have a passion you would like to share with others, call the Lake House Manager (843-725-1581) about starting up a new group! Room reservations are also managed by the Lake House Manager.

Seabrook Island Natural History Group

The Seabrook Island Natural History Group (SINHG) is one of the island’s oldest and largest special interest groups. SINHG maintains four walking trails on the island highlighting our unique maritime ecology. They also host annual trips for members to fully experience the region’s natural beauty and history. SINHG is dedicated to exploring and protecting the ecology, history, and culture of the Carolina Lowcountry.

Seabrook Island Green Space Conservancy

The Seabrook Island Green Space Conservancy’s mission is to preserve and enhance the natural environment on Seabrook Island through the acquisition of land and land easements, through education on environmental topics, and through the advocacy of conservation issues. Since 2000, the Conservancy has preserved dozens of properties as permanent green space. They are deeply grateful to everyone for sharing in the effort to keep Seabrook Island “Green”. 

Seabrook Island Turtle Patrol

The Turtle Patrol protects and preserves some of our most important visitors: Sea Turtles. Turtle Patrol members walk the beaches every morning during the nesting and hatching season, typically from May to October. Members identify, inventory, and monitor sea turtle nests and provide data to the SCDNR to assist in tracking the reproductive performance of sea turtles that nest on Seabrook Island, South Carolina.

Seabrook Island Birders

Seabrook Island Birders are residents, renters and guests of Seabrook Island, SC who have an interest in learning, protecting and providing for the well-being of the incredible variety of birds that inhabit Seabrook Island throughout the year. Members go on bird walks, give their input on proposed ordinances that would affect our wildlife, and volunteers to monitor bird programs in place around the island.

Seabrook Island Artist Guild

With more than 80 members, The Seabrook Island Artist Guild is dedicated to its mission of providing members with opportunities to learn, exhibit their art, and network with other artists. Guild members participate in outreach and exhibits that help spread the word about local artistic talent and encourage others to get involved in the arts.
