Jekyll Island Outdoor HOP (SOLD OUT, Wait List Only)
(Head Out Program)

September 23, 2019 - September 27, 2019

Location: Jekyll Island, GA

Once known as the playground of the rich and famous, with families such as the Morgans, Pulitzers, Rockefellers, Vanderbilts, and the Goodyears, is now opened for everyone to enjoy.

Experience the stunning sunsets and sunrises on this beautiful southern coastal island, well-known for its beauty, historical buildings, and from its many relics of the Civil War.

Admire the marsh grasslands, home to many types of wildlife and the inspiration for the sentiments penned by Sidney Lanier, a Confederate soldier, who wrote the famous poem, “The Marshes of Glynn.”

Below is a picture of the Sidney Lanier Cable Bridge, the longest-spanning bridge in all of Georgia.

Board a spacious, covered U.S. Coast Guard-certified passenger boat and enjoy a fully narrated historical sightseeing and dolphin tour, learning all about the social behavior and feeding habits of these gentle creatures. There are often sea turtles, manatees, egrets, herons, roseate spoonbills, and osprey, plus shrimp boats and luxury yachts to see!

While on Jekyll Island, you will see the elegant oak trees draped with the flowing, featherlike Spanish moss. You can enjoy walks or bring your bicycles and ride along the sandy beaches, like the famous Driftwood Beach, a short distance from our campground.


Board a trolley and enjoy a fun and knowledgeable narrated tour, covering over 22 miles and 86 points of interest that is all about Saint Simons Island. Learn about the history and stories that made this island what it is today.

Last, but not least, ‘Let’s Go Crabbin’! Join your HOP Hosts and learn how to catch blue crabs!

As a farewell to everyone, enjoy a favorite southern traditional dish called a Country Boil.
