We would like to thank all of our students and families for being part of our biggest and best year ever at Summer Academy at UGA. More than 1,020 students attended 58 camps over our six weeks of programs, learning about a diverse variety of academic subjects and making great friends along the way. See below for some pictures of our summer experience.

Check back here in early December for our camp offerings for Summer 2020! We look forward to seeing you again next summer!
