When you check into the campground, you instantly become a part of OUR familyJeremiah Drew is a hands-on campground manager. He's been known to take campground guests out golfing to get to know them better, hosts snowbird golf group, and enjoys singing karaoke with campers!
“I want people to leave here and tell all of their friends and family how great their stay was,” says Jeremiah. “I want them to feel like they are a part of something special while they are on vacation.”
During one of the campground's karaoke evenings, Jeremiah recalls a particularly shy guest. “I joined her on stage and sang a duet with her. She smiled the whole time, and when it was time for her to leave, she told her mom that she wanted to come back here every year.”
Jeremiah worked as a recreation assistant for the city of Myrtle Beach, planning and implementing new activities for after school programs, while also assisting in sports tournaments. He then was hired as the activities director for Myrtle Beach KOA.
“My passion for the company grew with each passing day,” Jeremiah says. “The campground life became more than job—it became a lifestyle that I wanted to pursue as a career.” Jeremiah gradually started becoming more hands-on with campground operations, and he took on the role of General Manager in early 2014.
“Nothing makes me prouder then when a guest seeks me out to tell me how great their stay was and how clean and beautiful the campground is,” Jeremiah says. “Our campground is a hidden gem here at the beach. My staff works so hard daily to give our guests the makings of great memories.”
When he's not running the campground, Jeremiah enjoys running, reading, basketball, music, and golf.
