If you’ve been searching for a way to kick the winter blues, Seabrook has the answers.

Join a Club
We value community on Seabrook Island, which has led to us having more than 30 on-island special interest groups. Our clubs cover a wide spectrum of activities, from classic book clubs and Bible studies to DIRT Genealogy and Mah Jongg Mavens. Consult this special interest group list for more ideas and for contact information of club managers.
If you don’t see the club you’re looking for, you can also create one of your own!
We have a variety of volunteer opportunities both on and off Seabrook island. We currently have 23 organizations listed on our volunteer page, but we are always happy to add more. Whether you’re interested in volunteering with animals or helping a child learn to read, there are ways to do that as part of the Seabrook community.
Go for a Hike
Together with the Seabrook Island Natural History Group (SINHG), SIPOA maintains four trails on Seabrook. These range in difficulty from one to five and all of them are known for their wildlife.
