SAS Summer 2022 Overnight Camp: July 3-17
Two Weeks Of Mountain Summer Fun!
SAS created the safest environment for our students these past years and we have transferred this successful methodology to our summer programming. Our residential sleep-away camp for children ages 11-14 combines professional instruction in a variety of sessions with traditional camp activities. Each camper will enjoy his or her own schedule as they take advantage of our 550 acre campus, named one of the most beautiful in the southeast. Camp will follow CDC and ACA guidelines and protocols for Covid-19. Our special programming, small group settings, and unique campus offers a relaxed one-of-a-kind summer experience!

In our second year, SAS Summer Camp offers three activity sessions during the week - two morning and one afternoon - in an array of pursuits including American Sign Language, ceramics, computer technology, woodworking, outdoor adventure, culinary arts, music lessons, dj sessions, dance, painting, mountain biking, karate, and more. Late afternoons and evenings are filled with traditional summer camp activities such as sports, swimming, canoeing, fishing, hiking, biking, tennis, group games, disc golf, arts and crafts, contra dancing, bonfires, movies, and night hikes. The weekends are kicked off with a Friday Night Campout and once back on Saturday, there is plenty of time for leisure along with optional activities offered.
Cost of the camp includes expert instruction, air-conditioned accommodations, all meals and snacks, camp t-shirt and lanyard, all transportation during camp, plus possible COVID-19 testing. The snack canteen and school store will be available on certain days for purchases. Every residence hall is equipped with a complimentary washer and dryer to allow for campers to learn how to take care of their own laundry.
Participants will be required to provide proof of a negative COVID-19 test 48 hours prior to arrival and will be tested at check-in. At this time it is strongly recommended that all participants be fully vaccinated - please note this policy may change. Check-In is on July 3 or 10 from 10:00 - 12:00 a.m. (CST). Departure is Sunday morning, July 10 or 17. You may contact our Camp Director if adjustments are needed regarding arrival or departure dates.
