Our program is designed for boys and girls between the ages of 8-16. Campers are placed in cabin groups according to age, gender, and parental requests. With a staff-to-camper ratio of 1:2, kids have full assistance in all aspects of camp life. Camp Augusta is a place where children learn to live together in a supportive atmosphere that promotes personal and social growth, increases self-confidence, and lasting memories and friendships. Our extensive activities offer something for just about any camper.
Intended as a first camp experience for the young child (ages 6 – 8), providing close supervision and an introduction to camping with lots of individual attention. A ratio of one staff member per two campers is maintained, and often better than that.
