Montage Merit Badges


Catch a fish, roast a s’more, hike a trail, spot some local wildlife: Children who master these activities (among many others) during their visit will earn exciting merit badges for each. Not only will participants be able to return home with evidence of their adventures in the form of a creative pin, those who complete all 12 achievements will also receive a special prize and Gilbert the Gator status! This unique program gives children an opportunity to be the masters of their own experiences and, with the help of their take-home merit badges, relish those memories long after leaving Montage Palmetto Bluff.

Remember the childhood thrill of hiding in a wooden shelter among the branches, enjoying a bird’s-eye view of the neighborhood? Relive that excitement at the treehouse in Wilson Village, located on Mount Pelia Road diagonal from RT’s Market, and at the treehouse tucked along the marsh at Moreland. The treehouses and hand-crafted furniture were designed and built by the father-son duo of Wayne and Heath Edwards. The structures wrap around live oaks without touching any part of the tree. The Mount Pelia treehouse has multiple entry and exit points, including a wooden boardwalk, a rope ladder and a metal slide. Two hammocks and a swing set sit nearby for those who need a rest. The grassy, shady setting, with the Village Lagoon only a few yards away, exudes tranquility. The Moreland treehouse provides spectacular views of the surrounding waterways and wilderness for those agile and willing enough to reach its 5-story observation deck.


Montage Palmetto Bluff’s abundant family friendly activities encourage a love for the Lowcountry. Paintbox, our exclusive children’s program, entertains guests ages 5 to 12 with a happy mix of games, crafts, movies and engaging activities. Outside play includes active choices like bike riding, nature hikes, lawn games, sports and scavenger hunts.

Holidays bring a wealth of activity to the resort. Friends and family gather year after year celebrating with classic traditions and creating new ones. Property-wide team scavenger hunts across the twenty thousand acres, themed parades along the Village Green, 5k runs, poolside celebrations and so many more activities are a part of the experience of Palmetto Bluff. The greatest gift of all is the memories created.

Canine Ambassadors


A family favorite of Montage Palmetto Bluff is the Canine Ambassador program, which features our beloved English Labrador Retrievers, May and Cooper, and our newest addition Cauley, hailing to us from the Hilton Head Humane Association. These three share the role of bringing joy to all of our guests with meet and greets, where they look forward to interacting with everyone and posing for family portraits. Our Labradors are truly at home in Palmetto Bluff – loving the broad expanse of the Lowcountry land and water, in keeping with the nature of their retriever breed.

Greetings take place in the Inn lobby at 3:00 pm Monday through Saturday.
