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.

Camp Changes for 2017 include: New camps, like College Preparation: Digital Portfolio Immersive, where students learn about college admissions criteria and how to stand out for college and future employers; and 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. We also will have additional sessions of our Film and Advanced Film camps.

As part of our Public Service and Outreach mission, we continue to offer scholarships to students based on financial need. In 2016, we had 65 students attend on scholarships totaling more than $20,000. If you would like to make a tax deductible donation to a general fund, go to the Commit to Georgia web site. If you are able to help others attend via a donation, your support is greatly appreciated.

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!
