Welcome to the South Carolina Good Sam Camping Organization Website. Here you will find information
about state Good Sam activities. There is a list of South Carolina Chapters. By joining a local chapter, Good
Sam members can get the most out of being a Good Sam member. Each chapter lists a contact person for
that chapter. Feel free to contact any chapter representative for more information about that chapter's
activities. If you cannot find a chapter you can form one by contacting the State Director. You will need to
select a chapter name and elect officers. A minimum of six members is required to form a chapter.
South Carolina Caravan Patch
Caravan Patch- South Carolina now has a Caravan Patch. Simply caravan to a state Samboree or mini rally in a group of three or more, fill out the form which can be downloaded below, have it signed by your Chapter Wagonmaster, and bring it to the Good Sam Store during the rally to purchase the patch. Future caravans to South Carolina Samborees will allow you to qualify for a State Tree patch to go around the original patch.
