The Camden Hunt is the second oldest hunt in South Carolina and was recognized by the Master of Foxhound Association in 1926. The hunt maintains a professional huntsman, kennel and between 20 to 25 couple of hounds (hounds are counted in couples of two).
 
The terrain in hunt country is a mix of lush swamps, hardwood forests and mature pine woods. The footing is mostly sandy and very horse friendly. The area is part of the sand hills region of the Carolinas and has always been a favorite destination for horsemen of every equestrian discipline. Camden’s historical past, and its rich tradition of steeple chasing  provide a backdrop of sporting elegance that harkens to an earlier time.

Camdens hounds are primarily crossbred which is a combination of English and American hounds. They are bred for their nose, drive and stamina and can press their quarry for hours when scenting conditions are at there best. It is not uncommon to view game several times on any given day. Although intense in the hunt field, the hounds are extremely biddable and have fared well on the boards at Hound Shows. The Camden Hunt is fortunate to employ a professional huntsman and his dedication and knowledge provide the foundation for a healthy pack of hard hunting hounds.

The Joint Masters of the Camden Hunt are responsible for all aspects of hunting inclusive of hounds, facilities, land, and fiscal demands. At their leisure they are assisted by the Hunt Committee, Honorary Secretary and Social Chairman. The Hunt supports the Master of Foxhound Association and is dedicated to perpetuating the sport of fox hunting.
Cub hunting begins in early October, and the formal hunt season begins with opening hunt and the blessing of the hounds on Thanksgiving Day. Hounds meet on Wednesdays and Saturdays through mid March. Ratcatcher attire is acceptable during cub hunting, and formal hunt attire is expected from the Opening Hunt forward.

Guests may cap five times and capping fees are $75.00 for adults and $35.00 for juniors. There are several levels of membership which is conducive to varying levels of interest.

Hunt country is well paneled with Coops, Aikens and Camdens, but horse and rider can go around each obstacle. There are two fields, the first which jumps, and the second flight which goes at a slower pace.

Game is abundant and consists of red and gray foxes as well as coyote. All are acceptable quarry under the guidelines of the MFHA, and each provides unique sport in a completely natural environment.
