Summer Camp registration is heating up! If you haven’t decided on which programs your children will attend this year, now is the time to do it. I’ve done posts over the years with links to camps both in the Atlanta area and sleep-away camps that Chase has loved or friends have recommended. Whether your children want to experience sleep away camp or they’re involved in a sport and want an intensive day camp experience, there are a lot of options, many of which are convenient to Vinings and Buckhead.
Chase loves water sports so he will be attending Camp Seagull-Seafarer’s seamanship program in North Carolina this summer. Another draw is that they are affiliated with the Coast Guard, so all of their boating activities are overseen by USCG licensed captains.
He’ll also be attending a day camp that is new to Atlanta that he’s really excited about. I2Camp is for middle school students and is all about science, technology, engineering, and math. It is really interesting and special and I’ve never seen anything like it. Sessions will be at the Westminster Campus.

There are also specific sports camps- I’ll list several recommended camps below- as well as theatre and nature camps. Georgia Tech is offering an information expo on February 18 with a lot of information about their summer youth camps as well as a resource guide for other Atlanta-area camps.
Sadly, I just found out that one of Chase’s favorite rustic camps is no longer in operation; Josh Powell Summer Day Camp posted the following on their website: “We would like to thank you for your support in making Josh Powell Day Camp a success for 43 years! We were delighted to be able to run camp for three years after Josh’s passing in 2011, and now it is time for us to bring the camp to a close. There were few things that Josh enjoyed more than running camp, getting to know you and your children, and introducing the campers to the wonders of the outdoors and Georgia Red Clay.   He delighted in seeing the children of former campers come through each summer and hearing your stories on Parents’ Days. He was able to lead a life that he loved because of your support through the years. Thank you for being a part of it. The Powell Family
Chase attended for 3 years and made a lot of great memories there.
