Behavior Management

Because we want SummerU to have the safest and fun environment for learning, we ask campers to be attentive to instructors and staff, engage in activities and respect others’ privacy and safety. Inappropriate behavior by a camper will be redirected towards proper behavior by the camp instructor. If inappropriate behavior persists, a parent or guardian will be notified, and the camper may be asked to leave the program. 

Are there any scholarships or financial aid available for Summer U?
There are no scholarships or financial aid available at this time.

Pick Up Times

All campers must be picked up between 3:00pm and 3:15pm, or by 5:30pm if in extended care. If your camper is not in extended care and is picked up after 3:15pm, we reserve the right to charge the weekly rate of $70, per camper. 

Sign In/Sign Out Procedures

For the safety of each child, all campers must be signed in and signed out each day. Parents and guardians are required to walk their camper to and from the classroom, daily. Parents and guardians’s names must be listed on their camper’s waiver and mustshow photo identification to a staff member at pickup.

Before Care/Extended Care

Before care and Extended care is offered weekly.  Before care is offered from 7:30am to 9:00am.  Extended care is offered from 3:00pm-5:30pm. We do not prorate extended care by the day. Parents and guardians should check out their camper at the welcome table at the South Entrance of the KSU Center and be prepared to show photo ID and sign out their camper.

Lost and Found
At check in or check out inquire about the location of lost and found. Please label all of you camper’s belongings. Lost and found items not claimed after one month will be donated to charity. Kennesaw State University Community and Professional Education is not responsible for camper’s possessions that are damaged, lost or stolen.

Electronics and Personal Property

Campers should leave all personal technology and toys at home unless approved by the program manager.

We ask that campers leave their cellphones at home. Leaving phones at home allows campers to focus on being a kid, build relationships and being 100% present at camp. If a camper brings a cell phone to camp, they will be asked to put their phone away. If cell phone usage becomes an issue, parents/guardians will be contacted.

Illness and Injury

If a camper becomes ill or injured at camp, our staff will contact a parent or guardian to pick him/her up. For the protection of all campers and staff, any child believed to have an infectious illness should not attend camp. Please review our Covid 19 policy on the website. If your camper is injured at camp, our staff will take necessary measures to administer first aid or obtain medical care. (Please note our Summer U staff is CPR/basic first aid trained.)


We do not store or administer medication to campers. Campers may bring medications with them. Please notify a camp staff member that your camper has medication.
