Nestled on over 400 acres in the farmlands of Georgia, Camp Southern Ground, a 501 (c) (3) non-profit organization, is the passion-project of GRAMMY Award winning artist Zac Brown.

Inspired by his own experience as a camp counselor, Zac’s vision is to create a state-of-the-art facility that will serve children ages 7-17, from all socioeconomic backgrounds, races and religions, with programs of purpose involving superior nutrition, nature, music, arts and leadership. More than the typical camp experience, at Camp Southern Ground children and families will Live and Love What They Learn. The state-of-the-art campus will have activities to challenge, educate, and inspire our campers, with a special emphasis on children with Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD), learning and attention issues, social or emotional challenges, and those with family members serving in the military.

Camp Southern Ground will include the following buildings and activity areas:

  • Adventure Center
  • Amphitheater
  • Aquatics Center
  • Art Center
  • Boys’ and Girls’ Lodges
  • Chapel
  • Fire Pit
  • Hiking and Nature Trails
  • Mountain Bike Trails
  • Music Center
  • Multipurpose Building
  • Organic Farm
  • Outpost Tent Area
  • Peterson Hall -dining hall
  • Respite Lodge
  • Shade Pavilion
  • Technology Center
  • Welcome Center


Currently in the development stage, Camp Southern Ground is seeking partnerships and funding in order to bring this vision to fruition. Visit our Ways to Give page to learn more about how you can help!
