What is the Georgia facility like?
Our camp is hosted on the beautiful grounds of Emmanuel College, an hour and a half north of Atlanta on 200 acres of open fields, attractive landscaping and forests. It is minutes from Georgia state parks, river activities and Lake Hartwell.
The property boasts state of the art collegiate sporting facilities including soccer, lacrosse, baseball, softball, and intramural fields, indoor 9-lane collegiate size pool and Aquatic Center and a 4000 Sq.ft. air-conditioned Fitness Center with state of the art wellness equipment.
Where do your kids come from?
Most come from the southeastern states. However, we have several campers from around the US and a few from overseas. We welcome and encourage diversity.
What about living accommodations?
Dormitories are modern and very comfortable. They are set up ‘quad’ style, with one or two campers sharing a bathroom.
What is a normal day like?
Camp Shane Georgia offers six periods daily, filled with a well rounded and fun filled balance of activities. We offer most sports, indoor pool and lake swimming and water exercises, nutrition and cooking classes, optional Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, crafts, paint ball, Zumba, circuit training, fitness, scores of unique fabulous games created by Shane staff and found only here, trips to beautiful state parks, and so much more. A child will never be bored at Shane and will take home real, usable skills. The excitement continues into every evening with activities like movies, talent shows, pool parties, theatrical performances, movies, games, etc.
How do you deal with homesickness?
It may surprise you, but we have little homesickness at Shane. We provide a warm, nurturing atmosphere, where everyone knows everybody’s name, and there is a tight knit community of campers and staff. Children flourish in our “home away from home”, where the environment is always encouraging and positive.
What if my child gets sick while at camp?
Any prescription medication must be packaged and labeled clearly by parents and given to head staff upon arrival. Medication will be distributed by an adult staff member. We do not assume responsibility to dispense medications, but we work hard to ensure that there are no problems. In the event of a more serious illness, a camper will be taken to a nearby clinic and in an emergency, the hospital. Both are located only ten minutes from the school.
