ATHENS Y CAMPS

Tallulah Falls, Ga. Visit, www.athensycamps.org

Athens Y Camp for Boys and Camp Chattooga for Girls . There are brother-sister camps located adjacent to each other in the Blue Ridge Mountains of North Georgia. Campers participate in both separate and shared programs during weeklong sessions.

RESIDENT CAMP PROGRAM

Traditional camp is for children ages 7-14. A camper’s stay will be very similar to the experience of a camper from years ago. We draw campers back to a time that is often remembered but not often experienced. Campers will learn and experience many of the old fashion values and truths that make our camp programs unique. Personal responsibility, maturity and friendship are all life skills that are learned and honed at camp.

DAY CAMP PROGRAM

Ages 7 – 14

Can you think of a better place to spend your day than right here with us? It is amazing how many things we can fit into one day. And we do it everyday all summer, rain or shine. Come be a part of our great outdoors, great activities, great friends and great fun.

We offer 8 one-week sessions of summer day camp for ages 7-14. Our sessions start on Mondays and end on Fridays. Campers arrive before breakfast and leave before dinner. Throughout the day, campers are integrated into classes and activities as well as the cabin group of their age and school year for lunch and rest time. Day campers enjoy the same historic facilities and exciting programming that make our residential camps so awesome!

LEADER IN TRAINING PROGRAM

The Leader In Training (boys ages 15-16) program has been an integral part of both camps from its inception, and has produced many fine leaders over the years. Where do great counselors come from? Great campers, of course. The LIT program is a rigorous 4-week program than focuses on authentic Christian leadership. Participants will learn about themselves and the type of leader that God wants them to be by focusing on five core areas: Values, Relationships, Purpose, Heart and Self-discipline. The program consists of intensive training in areas such as program planning and development, child development, vespers, child abuse recognition, CPR and Lifeguard training.

The young men in this program develop leadership skills such as coaching, public speaking, responsible mentoring and decision making. They also participate as a group in traditional camper activities and overnight trips. Additionally, they take several out of camp trips such as: white water rafting, hiking, caving or even traveling to a pro baseball game or amusement park. A special trip is taken the last week of the program that serves as a bonding experience for the friendships that have formed. Trips from past years include The Outer Banks of NC, Charleston SC, Cumberland Island, GA. and local mountain retreats.

The group operates as a close knit unit from which many lifelong friendships are forged. Those participants who have completed the training and have the qualities and skills required of the Y Camps leadership will be asked to return the following summer as a staff member!

The value of the LIT experience is incalculable, and the rewards are many. LITs grow not only as leaders but also as young men. With the process of learning-to-teach, comes greater self-awareness and physical, mental and spiritual maturity. Perhaps the greatest reward is the satisfaction that comes from serving as a positive influence on the lives of others not only in one summer but in many to follow.

EXTREMIST PROGRAM

Ages 12 – 14

The Xtremist Program (for boys 12-14) is a beginner level program for campers who are interested in outdoor adventure/sports. The program is tailored to the age and skill level of the participants. It strives to teach new skills and to continue building upon previously learned skills, all within a framework of fun and safety! Campers will participate in some of the traditional camp programs and reside in a cabin. Classes and league games will be replaced by high and low ropes course activities, zip-line rides, the climbing tower, and rappelling instruction! Participants will also learn team building skills on the high and low ropes courses, have a day of rock climbing and rappelling on “real rock” away from camp. X-tremist experiences may include a one to two night trip to NW GA and TN for caving and rafting the Ocoee River. It is not uncommon for the boys and girls adventure program participants to travel together and participate in the off campus activities together.
