Wesleyan School offers academic, athletic, enrichment and fine arts summer camps
Since its founding in 1963, area residents have long known Wesleyan School as a place of academic excellence that provides students with a college preparatory education guided by Christian principles and beliefs. But what some people might not know is that for the past two decades, Wesleyan has been the summer camp of choice for many kids throughout the region.
“We are thrilled to be back with a full schedule and once again open to the public,” said Kelly A. Weatherly, Wesleyan School’s Director of Auxiliary Programs and Outreach. “I am especially excited about our rising Pre-K camp--Junior Wolves. It’s a half or full day of fun and provides the necessary care parents need for those not old enough to join the main day camp.”
Wesleyan Summer Camps make summers fun for children ages 4-14. Camps range from arts to athletics, STEM to life skills and Wesleyan offers morning, afternoon and full-day programming, as well as specialty camps. Registration is now open for this year’s summer camps at the school, which is located at 5405 Spalding Drive in Peachtree Corners.
“Our camps have something for everyone,” Weatherly said. “Parents love that when you come to a camp at Wesleyan School, you really are getting a glimpse of who we are. All camps are run by our faculty, staffed by our students and alumni and we never leave the campus. It’s a good feeling to know what you’ve signed up for and I think we meet those needs well.”
Wesleyan offers the Junior Wolves Pre-K general day camp with morning and full-day options available. For rising K through 4th graders, there are academic camps, day camps and enrichment camps. Day camps will have a different theme each day, structured activities and free time. Enrichment camps are smaller in size and offer children an opportunity to dive deeper into art, movie making, STEM and more. Rising 5th through 8th graders also have several choices, including academic camps, athletic camps, enrichment camps and fine arts camps.
“Middle school students sometimes struggle with a full day of activity, that’s why I love our 9 a.m. - noon sports skills camps,” Weatherly said. Depending on their interests and schedules, a camper can be enrolled in one camp for the morning session and attend a different camp for the afternoon. In addition, before and after care is also offered. For more information about Wesleyan School Summer Camps, or to register, visit https://www.wesleyanschool.org/programs/summercamps.
