2023 Summer Camp will be held at Smitha Middle School
2025 Powder Springs Rd., Marietta, GA 30064
FOR SUMMER 2023 COMING SOON!
Camp Cheatham Hilll is a privately owned business and carries its own insurance policies. It is not affiliated with Cheatham Hill Elementary or the Cobb County School District.
Camp Cheatham Hill runs consecutively during the summer months of June and July (start and end dates vary based on the Cobb County School Calendar). We are also open during the extended breaks (Fall Break, Thanksgiving Break, Winter Holidays, February Break & Spring Break). Camp Cheatham Hill is open to the general public (campers do not have to attend Cheatham Hill Elementary School). Any ELEMENTARY aged child (rising kindergarten through exiting 5th grade) is welcome to attend our camp.
There is a $35 non-refundable registration fee. The registration fee is annual and must be paid on, or before, the first day your child attends camp for the summer session. All campers are required to pay this fee. Once the fee is paid your child is able to attend all camps throughout the school year. Camp registration forms can be downloaded from the website. You may turn in the registration forms and fee the first day your child attends camp. You do not have to send them in ahead of time, we have plenty of space available. We overstaff to accommodate any number of campers wanting to attend our camp!
Camp will be held at Smitha Middle School. CAMP IS CLOSED ON FRIDAYS DURING THE SUMMER SESSION (due to the fact Cobb County Schools operate on a 4-day work week during the summer months). However, Camp is open on Friday’s during the mid-year breaks.
$45 full day. $40 half day. A half day of camp is any consecutive 4hr. block of time. A full day is anything over 4 hours. Campers picked up after 6PM will be charged an additional $1 per minute.
Camp is open from 7AM to 6PM. During check in (7:00 – 9:00) campers are allowed free-time and may bring any items from home to play with, including devices. Once check in ends, campers put all their personal belongings away and our camp day begins around 9:15AM. Camp ends at 4:30PM. Campers are then brought to the gym and allowed free time until they are picked up!
A typical day of camp consists of several different morning rotations, afternoon rotations and daily “in-house field trips” *In house field trips may include an additional charge* The morning and afternoon rotations include a large variety of activities such as arts/crafts, technology, gym games, playground time, fun with food, music & movement, manipulatives & learning centers, guided art, where in the world is, piano keyboards, icebreakers, etc... There is a mandatory math computation and reading comprehension session daily. Campers are required to work on these skills in the computer lab. Additionally, we have a designated “water day” each week in which we hire a company to bring water inflatables for the kids to enjoy! We also allow campers to bring water toys from home on water day.. Kids should bring bathing suit, towel and sunscreen on water day!! There are NO “off campus” field trips. All activities, visitors, events, etc…will take place on campus for the campers to enjoy. We will post a calendar of events and update it regularly as activities are scheduled!
LUNCH & SNACKS
Campers are required to bring their own lunch and drink daily. We offer the option to purchase lunch for $6 per day. Lunch is ordered from various restaurants in the area. The daily lunch menu is posted on the Calendar of Events. Camp provides afternoon snack free of charge. If your child would like more snack than what is provided, feel free to send extra snack in for them to eat. Gatorades are available for $1 purchase. We do not have working water fountains on campus (due to COVID), so please remember to send a water bottle daily with your camper!
