2022 Summer @ EDS

Day Camp at EDS is a 6-week summer camp for children 3-12 years of age. To qualify for our 3-year-old camp program, campers must be toilet trained and have been in a preschool setting for at least one year. Campers will explore, create, learn, and be active. Day Camp will run from 9 a.m. to 3:30 p.m., with half-day until 1 p.m., extended day until 5 p.m., and early care opening at 8 a.m. Every day, students will participate in games, arts and crafts, outdoor play, technology, special activities based on the week’s theme, and additional rotations of activities. Registration for all camps is now open!

*Please note, for our Extended Day options to run, we need a minimum of 5 campers enrolled.

Leader in Training (LiT) @ EDS

Have your teenager apply for our Leader in Training program and learn valuable leadership skills this summer. This volunteer position is for teenagers, 13-16. Through the LiT Program our young leaders will get CPR/First Aid Certified, gain leadership experience, work hands-on with younger children, and be responsible for assisting in the development and implementation of activities for the camp. LiTs must commit to at least 2 weeks of camp, and priority will be given to those who can work for the entire summer. If you are interested in learning more about our LiT program or have a teenager who would like to apply please email Jaye Cohen at jcohen@edsaugusta.com.


Specialty Camps @ EDS

In addition to the Day Camp, EDS will offer specialty camps, also open to all students in the CSRA, where skills can be honed in one specific area. Specialty camps get added all the time to our roster so please check our website, Panther Post, and social media posts for more information. Please note that some specialty camps have an option to add afternoon care from 12 or 1-3:30. Camps taking place on our Walton Way Campus will be bused over to Flowing Wells until the 3:30 pickup if this option is selected. 3:30 pickup is only available at our Flowing Wells campus.
