Old Fashioned, Old-School Summer Camp!

I’m happy to announce that I’m partnering with fellow homeschooling instructor and mom, Brandy Lucas (of Gardens on the Side), to offer two weeks of awesome old-fashioned summer camp for homeschooling families in the Atlanta area this summer. Here are the details:

Old Fashioned, Old-School Summer Camp with Brandy Lucas and Shawne Taylor

June 4-8 and July 16-20; 10am to 2pm; Avondale Estates, GA

This half-day homeschool summer camp will provide two weeks of screen-free fun for kids ages 5-12. Each day will include hands-on activities, arts/crafts, snacks, games, free play, outside time, and more, all built around a daily theme!

Monday — old-school fun and games
Tuesday — pioneer day and homesteading
Wednesday — outdoor skills
Thursday — building and gardening
Friday — games and field day
Kids will come home with lots of cool new skills and handmade items by the end of the week.
Campers should bring lunch from home, sunscreen, sunglasses or hat (if you want), and water bottle. All other camp materials will be provided.
Ages: 5-12
Cost: $200 per child per week; sibling discount is available ($200 for 1st child; $175 for each sibling). Campers can sign up for just one week, or both weeks this summer. A prorated rate is available if your child only wants to attend part of the week (just let us know)!
Register by emailing shawne@summerlyhomeschool.com with the following information:
child’s name and age • parent’s name • phone number • email address • any food allergies, other allergies,

Note: A non-refundable deposit of $20 per family is required to hold your space in the camp. Once you have signed up to register, we will send you PayPal information or information for paying by check. The $20 will be applied to the total cost of the camp (which won’t be due until camp begins).
