Here's an overview of the schedule for our 14th summer season, with some key highlights.
New and returning activities! We are resuming a few camper favorites, with caving at Raccoon Mountain Caverns and tree ropes climbing. We also are introducing stand up paddle boarding for a SUP experience at Lake Lanier.
As always, we look forward to hiking, beachfront lake swimming, zip lining, stream ecology, canoeing/kayaking, river tubing, whitewater rafting, and more.
Two weeks just for teens! Calling all alumni and teens ages 13-15. We are offering two unique encore sessions for any camper who may have missed their summer camps the past few years. Join us for fun adventure and one more summer at Camp Scene!
Field trip sessions with adventure and science exploration. We have a fun summer of adventure planned! The itinerary is subject to change. In the event an activity is canceled, we always attempt to adjust the schedule to preserve as much of the plan as possible. During the camp session, severe weather could impact the schedule without prior notice. Drop-off is from 8:15 a.m. to 8:45 a.m., and pickup is from 5:30 p.m. to 5:45 p.m.
