Five summer camps in Atlanta that promote education and arts

Gené Hunter

(ATLANTA, Ga.) With the end of the school year approaching for the metro Atlanta area, many summer camps have spaces available to continue learning and activities.

If you’re looking for a summer camp program to enroll your children in, check out these options:

The Walker School

Camps are geared toward first grade to eighth grade, but they do have a camp for younger children and a couple of offerings for students in higher grades. Most camps include the choice of half or full day, and the school has early drop-off and late pickup programs.

Buck's Sports Barn

This camp is designed for children ages five to 12 years old and offers activities like chess, pottery and painting. Other activities include trapeze, stilts, plate spinning, silks and drones.

Steve and Kate's Camp

Campers decide what they want to do every day from a variety of activities. Camp is purchased through individual days that can then be used on any day that Steve and Kate's is open this summer — notice is not required. Any unused days are refunded after summer.

Sunshine House Early Learning Academy

Sunshine House Early Learning Academy's Summer Remix Adventure Camp takes field trips to the next level. Each week has a theme that the experiences and field trips are all guided by. Each camper receives a swag bag and the camps also have an academic component to help students retain knowledge.

The University of Georgia

For children who are a bit older or already have a niche passion that they want to pursue, The University of Georgia is offering a plethora of camps aimed at learning more about very specific topics. A sampling of options includes "Fibonacci, Fractals & 4-D Math," "Comic Book: Basics & Intermediate" and "Creative Writing: Worldbuilding.”
