Summer Camp

IMAGINE... a Barnesville Summer full of adventure!
Wide-open fields in Montgomery County’s Agricultural Reserve are the ideal setting for a summer of fun true to the Barnesville School of Arts & Sciences mission of joy, support, and excellence. We put an emphasis on JOY!

Experienced camp counselors lead art, science, and nature activities for children entering ages Pre-K (3.5 years old) through Fifth Grade.  Each week has a different theme that includes on-campus adventures, projects, group collaboration, and more!
