Summer Academy at UGA is an exciting series of specialty summer camps in Athens for middle school and high school students who want to do amazing things. Whether you dream about becoming a film director, doctor, scientist or artist, we have a summer camp just right for you!

We are proud to announce our 2017 Summer Academy at UGA camp offerings. We are bringing back most of our camps from last summer and have some new additions as well.

Registration for 2017 Summer Academy at UGA will open on Wednesday, February 15, 2017 at 10:00AM.

Changes for 2017 include: New camps, like Ocean Discovery, a partnership with the UGA Department of Marine Sciences, which offers a unique hands-on approach to marine science and ocean conservation issues; and Amateur Radio, where students can learn about radio communications. We also will have additional sessions of our Film and Advanced Film camps.

Our Summer Academy at UGA programs are designed to let you live out your dreams. You can immerse yourself in any world you choose, from photography to video game design to aviation to comic book art. You’ll work with experts in the field to get practical, hands-on experience, and receive helpful advice on how to get where you want to go. And you’ll do it all while having a really great time!
