Registration opens February 4 for City of Acworth Residents
Camp Acworth, established in 1999, is a summer day camp that provides a safe and active environment for children to enjoy their summer. Campers will enjoy various outdoor activities including swimming, canoeing, hiking and archery, as well as arts and crafts and team sport activities. Each week campers go on a field trip to exciting places like Stars and Strikes, Georgia Aquarium, and the World of Coke. Weekly guests will visit Camp Acworth and teach kids a variety of subjects, ranging from public safety to performing arts.
Camp Acworth is for children ages 6 - 14 (Children attending 1st - 5th grade and children attending 6th to 8th grade in upcoming school year). Camp consists of eight, one week sessions beginning May 29 and concluding on July 27 (there is no camp the week of July 4). At Camp Acworth we keep our camper to counselor ratio at 10:1. All counselors are CPR and First Aid certified and must pass a background check. Lunches are not provided. All campers will need to bring their own lunches, swim suit, and towel each day of camp.
Camp Hours: Monday through Friday, 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.
Drop Off / Pick Up: Morning's from 7:30 a.m. to 9:00 a.m. and afternoon's from 4:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m.
