Camp FAQs

Grade Requirements

Grade requirements have been established to safely facilitate age-appropriate activities. Grades listed are for the upcoming school year, i.e. a child who has completed first grade is eligible for camps listed as grades 1-3 or 2-3.

Camp Attire

Campers should dress for comfort and safety; and in clothing that may become stained (art/science camps). Campers should wear athletic shoes (no flip-flops). Campers are discouraged from wearing jewelry or bringing items of value.

Lunch and Snacks

Campers are required to bring a lunch, beverages, and snacks each day. Each camp group will attend a 30-minute, supervised lunch period. Refrigerators are not available for campers to use. Beverage and snack machines are available to accept coins, bills, and debit/credit cards.

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. Please visit the Behavior Management Guidelines page for more information.

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 by 3:15 p.m. (6:00 p.m. if in Extended Care). If your camper is picked up after the stated times, we reserve the right to charge a late pick up fee of $60 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. Please be prepared to show photo identification to a staff member.

Extended Care

Extended Care is offered weekly from 3:00 p.m.-6:00 p.m. We do not prorate extended care by the day. Parents and guardians should report to the Check-Out Desk and show photo identification to 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 College of Professional Education is not responsible for camper’s possessions that are damaged, lost or stolen.

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. 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 certified.)


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.
