Your child’s week also will include hands-on activities, exhibit exploration tours, Imagination Theater movies, crafts, up-close animal encounters, a t-shirt, snacks and Splish, Splash Water Bash.

Whether you are looking for fun with water or outdoor activities, this is the camp for you! Take a journey to the heart of southwest Georgia, also called one of the “Seven Wonders of Georgia,” Radium Springs, for a very unique canoeing experience. Your camper will also experience Darton State College’s rock climbing wall and indoor swimming pool. During this week long session, campers will learn all about water, one of Earth’s most important resources, conduct science experiments and tests, explore local water history and ecology, get up close and personal with water critters, and “cool down” in the water with fun games and activities. Your camper will also “soak” up all the fun and knowledge about the Flint River, Georgia’s longest river with us this summer. This is a one-of-a-kind opportunity!

Be prepared to be outdoors, indoors, and in the water. Sun protection is encouraged.
