I can still remember Jenna, my favorite camp counselor, blasting Queen’s famous “I Want to Ride My Bicycle” while a gaggle of 13-year-old girls sang at the top of their lungs.

Now more than ever, it’s important for kids to feel safe in a fun environment, free of stress, where they can make similar memories that will last a lifetime.

Below, we’ve compiled a list of upcoming summer camps in the Peachtree Corners area. Whether at a local school, park or museum, we’re sure you’ll find the perfect summer camp for your children.

Camp Evergreen

Camp Evergreen’s rustic wilderness experience is offered to boys and girls ages 7-14. In addition to our longer overnight sessions, we offer a unique Seedling 4-day, 3-night session specifically designed for first-time campers. 

With no more than 80 campers per overnight session and a ratio of two staff members for every eight campers, Camp Evergreen believes that small numbers foster deeper relationships and increase the impact of the camp experience. 

Their staff members use creative and engaging approaches to teach traditional summer camp skills such as archery, canoeing, survival skills and swimming.

Regular camp activities are supplemented by daily chapel services, cabin devotion and prayer time, evening all-camp games called “Wild Time,” and special activities such as Half Christmas, Survivor Day, and Ridic-Olympics, to name a few.

Family-founded and operated for over 20 years, their mission has remained the same, that each camper would become more firmly rooted in Christ, growing in faith and branching out in love.
