Summer camp is a time-honored tradition! We’ve compiled a list of over 95 local and regional summer camps and recreational programs. From campfires to canoes and soccer to swimming, there are plenty of opportunities for your child to have a great summer. NOTE: Some of the venues listed have not yet updated their 2019 summer camp information, so the link will take you to the camp info from last year.

Columbus-Muscogee 4-H Summer Camp
An overnight, week-long summer camp for 4th-6th graders at Camp Fortson in Hamilton Georgia.
Camp Fortson is the only 4-H camp in Georgia with an actual farm on site so youth will have a hands-on experience with farm animals including chickens, turkeys, sheep, goats, donkeys, rabbits and other animals. Some camp experiences are really unique because, depending on timing, youth get to watch chicks hatch or see baby rabbits and other animals. The campsite also has a herpetology lab where youth will learn about snakes, lizards and they even have baby alligators.
Youth will participate in nature hikes, a climbing wall, a zip line, other ropes course activities and field trips off site.
