Kids in CollegeKids in College is a longstanding tradition at the College of Coastal Georgia. Originally designed as a summer enrichment program for elementary aged children, Kids in College is now a traditional day camp for elementary and middle school students designed to present relevant academic subject matter in a fun, engaging and exciting way.
This year, the College will be offering STEM, Fine Arts, Leadership and Sports weeks in June and July. Each of the six weeks will provide a unique experience for campers; we will not duplicate activities in in any subject area. STEM, Fine Arts and Sports camps will serve students ages 8-10 and 11-13. There will be 30 total spaces per session, with 15 spaces allotted for each age group. The Leadership camp will be limited to 20 campers, ages 10-13. The camp will run from 8:30 a.m. until 4 p.m. Drop-off begins at 8 a.m. and a late pick-up option (4:30-5:30 p.m.) is available.

Camp ExperienceThe curriculum, developed by certified educators, will give students the tools to make lasting connections to the fundamental skills and knowledge of each academic area. Our STEM camp lets students explore the diverse aspects of Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM), without having to worry about what grades they’ll receive. The Fine Arts camp will allow students to discover their artistic side through lessons devoted to photography, theater, dance and music.
The Leadership camp will enhance a pupil’s ability to lead and work in a group environment. It’s perfect for young minds interested in government, business, law enforcement, and public affairs We’ll use a variety of activities including tours of local governmental offices/facilities, guest speakers, athletics and our on-campus low ropes course to hone the skills and concepts of team building, commitment, hard work, dedication and social responsibility. The camp is slightly more physical in nature than the other sessions, so campers in this session must be 10-13 years old and submit a current physical with registration.
