2014 Summer Camp Update

Due to extremely high interest, we have filled the Georgia Military Youth Beach Adventure Camp on the first day of registration.  We will now be maintaining a waiting list; if registered youth withdraw from camp, youth will be moved from the waiting list to camp in the order they were added to the waiting list.  If you would like to add your child to the waiting list, e-mail stonebe@uga.edu and provide your child's name, age and gender, as well as the parent's name, branch of service, e-mail and phone number.  You will receive confirmation once your child is added to the waiting list.

See below for full details about this camp.
