The Morgan Oliver School Summer Camps 2022

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.

Did you know that our recycled newspapers become cat litter and countertops? Artists from around the world have been embracing this idea of using everyday recycled and used objects like soda cans, skateboards, toys, flip flops, cardboard and plastic bottles to make amazing pieces of art. During this summer camp we will be learning about what happens to recycled materials once they leave our homes and will explore what we can make and create with them!
