Camp Southern Ground

Core Essentials

Camp Southern Ground completed Phase 1 – infrastructure development and construction of its 12,000 square foot Shade-Pavilion, which will provide campers an outdoor shaded recreational area and concession kitchen.  Also recently completed is the centerpiece of camp, the Peterson Dining Hall as well as the unique Space Crab Treehouse. 

Phase 2 development has begun with the groundbreaking on our first Residential Lodge.  We call Phase 2 our “Core Essentials”.  The buildings include: Residential Lodges, the Aquatics Center, and an expanded Adventure Zone and Certified Organic Farm.

With Camp Southern Ground’s “Core Essentials”, camp operations will be under way.  Interested partners who wish to help advance Camp Southern Ground’s mission with Capital funding are welcome to contact for more details.  Your support will help us provide campers the opportunity to experience overnight camp, create lifelong friendships and unforgettable memories.

Ways to Give


Chris Kyle Frog Foundation and Boot Campaign Team Up With Camp Southern Ground

As part of Zac Brown’s unwavering commitment to our American freedoms and Armed Services, Camp Southern Ground is proud to have partnered with Chris Kyle Frog Foundation and Boot Campaign in support of military families.  With the support of Boot Campaign and Chris Kyle Frog Foundation, CSG’s Adventure Center is well underway. Already complete is a military-style high and low ropes course, and in design is an Alpine climbing tower and zip lines – elements that allow campers to venture out of their comfort zones while building confidence, trust and new skills.   

In addition, we will work together in partnership to support military families by providing a summer camp experience to children who are coping with the deployment of a parent, or those who have lost a loved one in service to our country.  Experiencing outdoor adventures and building lifelong relationships provides a comforting respite for these youngsters. Camp Southern Ground will also offer a “Retreat” environment for military families to spend quality time together and foster a rejuvenating time as a family unit.

The aim of the Chris Kyle Frog Foundation is to provide meaningful, interactive experiences to service members, first responders and their families, aimed at enriching their family relationships. For more information visit  

The mission of Boot Campaign is to promote patriotism for America and our military community; raise awareness of the unique challenges service members face during and post-service; and provide assistance to military personnel, past and present, and their families. For more information visit
