welcome to grown-up summer camp

Camp Shammett sits on 365 acres of woodsy terrain alongside a 10-acre private lake.

Activities include swimming, canoeing, basketball, tennis, walking, fishing, and maybe a game of Dizzy Bat. There’s also a playground, water slide, trampoline, and BLOB. (If it looks familiar, you’re not imagining things: The ’90s classic “Heavyweights” was partially filmed here.)

So we can all get in as much QT as possible, we hope you’ll make a weekend out of our celebration of love. As for where you’ll lay your head, you’ve got two options:

1. Sleep in one of 26 rustic cabins on the camp’s property. The cost is $150/adult for three nights, including six vegetarian meals. If you don’t need bedding or towels, the cost is $100/adult. Kids are free.

2. Book one of the more, um, refined lodging options nearby. Scroll to the bottom of the page for recommendations.

No matter where you stay, you’re welcome to join us for all camp activities and meals.

Option 1: Camp Life

If you choose to stay at camp, you’ll likely sleep in one of the 21 main cabins, which have bunkbeds, two sinks, and two toilets.

To bathe, you’ll use one of the shower houses, which will be separated by gender. They each have individual stalls and plenty of hot water.

All accommodations are fully screened-in, with electricity and twin beds. Click through the slider below for photos. As you can see, staying at camp will be a fun — but rustic — adventure!

What you need to know about staying at camp:

  • The cost is $150/adult for the entire weekend. Kids stay and eat free. If you don’t need a bedding set, the cost is $100/adult.
  • The cabins are VERY rustic — check out the photos to see what you’re getting into!
  • What’s included: six vegetarian meals (Saturday lunch/dinner, Sunday breakfast/lunch/dinner, Monday brunch), bedding, towels, shower basics (shampoo, conditioner, body wash), and FUN FUN FUN.
  • If you have children, you will get a cabin just for your family (though it may not have a private shower). If you don’t have kids, we may put you with some people you know. Just reach out if you have any questions or concerns!

Option 2: Off-Site Lodging

We get it: Not everyone wants to relive middle school. But even if you don’t stay on-site, we hope you’ll still take advantage of the many activities available at Camp Shammett. (Translation: Come hang out on Saturday and Sunday!)

You’re also welcome to join us for meals, though some will cost $12/person. Please indicate your interest on the RSVP; we’ll get final numbers closer to the wedding date.

For off-site accommodation, you’ll find quaint options in Flat Rock (5 minutes) and Hendersonville (15 minutes). Or, for a city feel, you can stay further afield in Asheville, NC (40 minutes) or Greenville, SC (50 minutes).

We recommend Airbnb, as there’s an abundance of cute vacation rentals in the area. But if you’d feel more comfortable in a hotel, the following properties are just a short drive from camp.
