The week of Thanksgiving is always a “special” time of the year at Brays. Everyone gathers together with family and friends to enjoy fun activities. The children have Kids’ Camp, while our owners look forward to sharing friendships at the Thanksgiving Day Dinner and the Saturday night Oyster Roast. Highlights for the week consist of a Family Night Dinner, the Annual Turkey Trot N’Walk, a Potting Workshop, Deer Hunts, Nature Walk, Golf and Equine Clinics and much more!!! It is not hard to understand why our owners chose Brays Island Plantation.
Nature activities are prevalent here at Brays. Our very own Naturalist, Bruce Lampright, among many other responsibilities, organizes a variety of interesting and exciting nature walks, kayak trips, bird watching tours and nature clinics throughout the year.

Exploring the woods, salt marsh ecosystem, creeks and rivers, offers much in the way of learning about nature and the Lowcountry wildlife on and surrounding Brays Island Plantation. It is these kinds of activities that open the door to awareness and help tell the story of how truly special it is to live in such an environment as Brays Island Plantation, known for its unmatched outdoor lifestyle.

Our hunt department staff members have been busy preparing for deer season August 15–January 1st, dove shoots starting September 1st, and quail season October 15th – March 14th.
This is the time of year when the shooting amenities really kick into gear. In fact, the other amenities start to feel a rise in activity also. It’s the Brays Island lifestyle – the way of life that means so much to our owners that sets Brays Island Plantation’s uniqueness apart from and at the forefront of all residential communities in the United States.

Fishing for Cobia in the Broad River
At this time of the year Brays Island owners take full advantage of the surrounding waters. Fun flotillas, kayak and canoe trips are planned, along with exciting fishing tournaments for Redfish, Cobia and Tarpon. For those who prefer other water activities, alternative options such as nature excursions exploring the marshes and creeks on foot or by boat are offered. Even trapping for local blue crabs is a fun pastime, as well as inviting guests over for a casual dinner on the porch to enjoy a Low country boil. With the scent of gardenias and jasmine, whippoorwills calling to each other and owls hooting, there’s no better way to relax at the end of the day than to enjoy a true Low country summer’s evening at Brays sharing good times with family and friends.
