The Morgan Oliver School Summer Camps 2021

At Morgan, diversity and inclusiveness is at the forefront of all programming. Each summer camp offering will incorporate the MOS mission to create change through open conversations around oppression and to encourage kids to be active participants in creating change. Each day camp will have daily Story Time centering rich and vibrant authors and kids of color, opportunities to cook, explore science, as well as weekly experts from within the community to come share their knowledge of the camp theme. Sleepaway campers will be able to explore the beautiful North Georgia mountains, participate in day trips to horse back riding, hiking, and white water rafting. 

We are now enrolling day campers ages 5 through 11, and sleepaway campers ages 6-11. All camps will be practicing strict Covid precautions, so spaces are very limited. Sign your camper up now by filling out the Registration form at the bottom of this page!

Sleepaway Camp at North Georgia Mountains

Session 1:  June 13th-19th  

 Campers ages 6 to 11 will learn the basics of outdoorsmanship and how to live off the grid. We will practice fire starting, tent building, how to forage, collect kindling and build a safe space to make a fire. We will hike and experience the splendor and beauty as Indigenous people did so long ago. There will be day trips to participate in white water rafting, horseback riding and some scenic waterfall trails. Kids will have a lot of unstructured play time to explore the creek, create forts, build huts and dams, and climb trees. 

 

Our food will all be locally grown and sourced, and we will talk about the importance of supporting local farmers and eating healthy food. Kids with food aversions will be asked to try new things. 

The site is a cabin on 2 acres nestled in the Nantahala Forest. While it is very private, town is only 20 minutes away and there are neighbors down the road. Kids 7 and under will bunk inside, kids 8 and up will camp outside with adult supervision.  Tents and all necessary supplies needed to sustain children for a week will be provided. Campers will meet at MOS and be bused up to the cabin. Everyone will be rapidly tested prior to departure. Staff are fully vaccinated. We will not require masks during this camp as we are limiting our numbers. We look forward to spending a week in the woods with your kids! 

 

Sleepaway camps are led by Sanidia and Laura. Limited scholarships are available.

 

6 night Sleepaway Camp Cost is $1,100
