I have some great updates for that Atlanta summer camps post I did a couple of months ago!
Much to the dismay of many families, Josh Powell Camp announced that they had closed their doors last year. Then today I read an article that they are open again! It is available for boys and girls who are rising 1st, 2nd, and 3rd graders. But since they were closed last year, this year only, they are taking rising 4th graders as well to allow children the full 3 year camp experience. Chase went all 3 years and has aged out now, but it truly is an camp experience he enjoyed. It still has many openings and I think that is due to the belief that it closed down, but here is the weblink to hurry and register your child; they are frequently updating their Facebook page as well for more details. They pick up at West Paces and Northside and drive the kids out to the country. They get muddy and hot, but I know nature boys and girls love it!
I also heard about a few more camps that I want to tell you about for those of you who haven’t finalized your summer camp plans yet. The original post has all the updated information is available in one place, but here are some new camp options I wanted to highlight:
- Club SciKidz is a science and technology camp for boys and girls ages 4-15. They have locations throughout the metro Atlanta area. Currently registering for camps beginning June 6.
- CampMODA: a Design Thinking Camp is being presented by the Museum of Design Atlanta at 4 locations: MODA’s Midtown campus, The Lovett School, GA Tech’s College of Architecture, and First Presbyterian Preschool on Peachtree. Programs are available for children ages 5-14 are are now registering for summer sessions. Check out Field Trips With Sue‘s write up for more details on the camp (and great ideas for kids activities in general).
- GA Tech Lacrosse Camps focuses on older children looking to really polish their lacrosse skills but has both day and overnight camps for boys and girls ages 8-18
