Georgia Summer Camps ~ A World of Places, Themes and Activities

Summer is right around the corner. That means it's time to select one or more camps for the kids.

Summer camp means a lot of things to a lot of people. It's a chance for kids to explore any variety of activities and get out from under the family roof independently for perhaps the first time. For parents and those kids' siblings it may be the first chance for a little piece and quiet around the house.

Camps today come in all shapes, sizes and durations. Specialty camps of all types offer curriculum and activities tailored to special interests and needs. Here we will address Georgia camps general and specific in nature. We provide more extensive resources below.
