We are thrilled to announce that our Mini Adventure Camp Weekends will be returning this fall – and this year we’ve added a session just for older campers with more challenging programming! We believe that even a short weekend at camp can be a transformative experience as we aim to give children with gifts of all kinds a space to learn and grow. Every year at camp brings new additions and experiences, and our third season will be no exception!
Mini Camps are action-packed opportunities for campers to experience new friendships, adventure, and the great outdoors. During these weekends we offer traditional camp activities including archery, arts and crafts, sleeping in tents, and of course dinners, skits and talent shows around the campfire. Campers will also enjoy unique programming including mining, organic gardening, and high and low ropes courses.
Our Mini Adventure Camps are open to children with typically developing needs, those with mild to moderate neurodevelopmental disabilities, those from socio-economically challenged environments, and from military families. To register – or for more information – click here!

Meet Our Program Director
We are thrilled to introduce the newest member of the Camp Southern Gound team – Stan Tucker. Stan joined the camp team during our 2016 Fall Mini Adventure camps and quickly became known as “Stan the Man”. His responsibilities include camp programming, American Camp Association compliance and accreditation, and mini camps. A former second grade teacher, Stan holds a Bachelor’s degree in Early Childhood Education with a focus on Urban Education from Kennesaw State University.
Stan brings to our team a tremendous passion for working with young people, and understands how to connect with kids so they feel welcomed, supported, and valued. His experience in the classroom will allow him to develop programs that engage kids and challenge their thinking about the world around them. And most importantly, he knows how to make the programs fun and accessible to all kids!
