The Hilton Head Plantation Artists Association is a non-profit organization that studies and promotes the visual arts with monthly educational programs, group painting sessions, workshops, and art exhibitions. The Association is open to all Plantation residents who are interested in the visual arts. Members work in a broad variety of media and range from beginners to accomplished professionals. Scheduled meetings generally have a speaker or demonstration concerning a wide variety of art-related topics. The Plantation House serves as a gallery for the artists -- most work hung in the Plantation House is for sale by contacting the artist. Informal opportunities to paint and exchange information with other artists occur every Wednesday from 10:00 AM until 2:00 PM at the Dolphin Head Recreation building. The Plantation Artists hold an annual show in May at the Plantation House. Residents are urged to join and explore their creativity; every artist has to have a place to start and encouragement from other artists certainly helps!

Competitive play of the game which originated in Italy. Bocce is played with eight large balls and one smaller target ball. Courts are near the tennis courts.
The game is played with two teams. Playing teams can have two or three members, but only two members play in a match.
Playing teams are arranged in divisions, which are based on time of day; skill level does not determine what division a team is in.
HHP Bocce has two seasons per year (spring & fall). Each season concludes with a tournament and banquet.
This sport is loads of fun, easy to play, and open to all Plantation residents.

HISTORY: This group was formed by Hilton Head residents more than 30 years ago. Initially, they were one of the craft groups that participated in an annual sale for the benefit of the Hilton Head Hospital. When the hospital became a “for-profit” company, the group subsequently donated its profits to a few different charities until 1996 when they voted to support Hospice Care of the Lowcountry. Since that time, profits totaling more than $250,000 have been donated to Hospice Care of the Lowcountry, a non-profit operation.
Currently, a group of Hilton Head Plantation residents, known as the Hilton Head Plantation Crafters Group meets twice a month from January to mid-June. Meetings resume in mid-August until mid-October when the Annual Sale is held. There are about 25 members. Others, former residents and former members who have moved away, ship boxes of handmade sweaters and other items each year for our sales. The crafters hold two sales a year. A spring sale held at the Plantation House and a fall sale held outside the Plantation at Christ Lutheran Church.

Plantation Paddlers Kayak Club is for Hilton Head Plantation owners and residents, and is open to all levels of kayakers.
Monthly meetings will sometimes be informational presentations, trip planning sessions, or meet and greet socials. When we do trip planning, we break into small groups and plan details of upcoming trips, learning from each other and using Internet planning resources. OR, we may have planning sessions to cover general discussion issues and upcoming activities.
Kayak Outings might be meet-up paddles suggested by individual members or might be club-arranged trips which take us to places as close as our own backyard marshes and creeks as well as lakes and creeks within a couple of hours of hours of home. Some trips even lead us to wrap up the time with happy hour or lunch! Most trips will be BYO equipment, and some trips will have the opportunity for those who need to rent to join in.
Training Session opportunities are available for beginning through intermediate paddlers. First timers who have never been on the water can attend an INTRO class, and those who may have some paddling experience but want guided instruction for effective, efficient, and safe paddling can participate in classes for Basic Paddle Skills, Rescue Skills, and Maneuvering Skills.

In less than 15 years, our Land Trust of Hilton Head Island has assumed a role of prominence and leadership in preserving the unique sense of beauty that distinguishes our Island. We are a reflection of all people who care about Hilton Head Island and its Lowcountry characteristics.
In Hilton Head Plantation, we are fortunate to have two beautiful conservancies. One is Whooping Crane Conservancy consisting of 137 acres and the other is Cypress Conservancy consisting of 37 acres. Both of these areas have boardwalks throughout for easy viewing. The Land Trust manages these properties under a conservation easement for the Hilton Head Plantation Property Owners' Association. We also manage Northridge Tract, 66 acres in the center of Hilton Head Island that will eventually become a park open to all. Fort Howell, which is a five-acres fort built by the Union Army in 1864 is also under our auspices.
The Land Trust can receive outright gifts of land or it can protect the land that is in the name of private owners by means of a conservation easement, which protects the land in perpetuity. A group of interested citizens manage the Land Trust. Membership is open to all citizens for annual dues.

This club is for anyone who is interested in trains. Some of our members have extensive layouts, some have only a circle of track for a Christmas tree train, and some have no trains but just like railroading.

We provide running trains for some of the Plantation functions, the hayride in the fall, the children’s Christmas party, and usually for our train club meetings. We provide assistance to anyone who needs help in getting a train running or just wants information about the hobby.
