Mini Medical School 1: Session A

The health and safety of our students, staff, and their families is our top priority. We have made the difficult decision to suspend in-person camps this summer and transition the majority of the camps to an online, virtual format. This camp will now be offered as an online program.

We are excited to offer this camp in this new format. Our instructors are working hard to create a fun and engaging camp in a virtual environment. We look forward to having you join us this summer!

For our currently registered students, we will be contacting you directly via e-mail to confirm your intention to remain in the virtual camp. We will also begin processing full refunds for all Residential, Extended Day, and Lunch Voucher Fees.

If you have questions about the new virtual camps, contact us at questions@georgiacenter.uga.edu.
