SAS Summer 2022 Overnight Camp: July 3-17
"It's Better Than Camp" Camp!
(Registration Open Until June 20)
Our residential sleep-away camp for boys and girls 11-14 provides an intimate approach to traditional camp as it combines professional instruction in a variety of sessions with summer favorites all kids love. Each camper will enjoy his or her own schedule as they live in our air-conditioned dorms, enjoy our Hogwarts-esque dining hall with its excellent food service, and swim, hike, bike, and play 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 offer a relaxed one-of-a-kind "better-than-camp" summer experience!
