Due to increased interest in the camps, we have brought back Introductory Video Game Design: Session B on July 6-10 and Architecture & Design: Session B on the week of July 13-17.

We are also considering bringing back Mini Medical School 1: Session D on July 6-10. If you would be interested in your child attending this session, e-mail us at summeracademy@georgiacenter.uga.edu to let us know. Once we see enough interest, we will be back in contact on this potential session.

We are excited to announce our 2020 Online Summer Academy at UGA camp offerings! We’ve designed our online camps to provide students with the same fun, engaging experience at home. Whether they want to become an environmental scientist, 2D animator, photographer, or actor, your child will work with real professionals in the field to gain hands-on experience, and learn more about making their career dreams come true. Join us for Summer Academy at UGA and make this summer one to remember!

There are tons of exciting camps being offered this year, including:

  • Ocean Discovery
  • Creative Writing
  • Intro Video Game Design
  • Architecture
  • Mini Medical School
  • And many more!

We have a new partnership with the UGA Department of Theatre and Film Studies to offer returning and new camps as part of our UGA Youth Film and Creative Arts Academy. The department’s faculty, graduate students, and undergraduate students will develop and lead this exciting set of camp offerings:
