Opportunities abound for academic enrichment, athletics, the arts, and transformative learning experiences through the Walker Summer Programs. We offer a wide variety of exciting and innovative camps for rising Pre-K to 12th grade students.

This year's summer camps and classes will be held June 1 through August 7 on our 50 acre campus located in Marietta, Georgia. The majority of our camps are open to the community, so participants include Walker students, their friends, as well as children from neighboring communities.   Space is limited so register early to secure your child’s camp selections.     

New This Year!

We are excited to offer a variety of new camps for students of all ages, such as Young Chefs, Digital Designers, The W.R.I.T.E Start, Construction by Deconstruction, and many more! 

This year we will also be offering an all-day Summer Explorers camp for rising 2nd through 6th graders. There will be four one-week sessions ranging in themes from animal adventures, outdoor odyssey, nature navigators, and globe trekkers! Campers can also choose to do just the morning or afternoon sessions if they are interested in taking another half-day summer camp.

Extended Hours Care

Early Bird Drop Off, Lunch Bunch, and After Camp Care are all staffed by Walker School employees.

Early Bird Drop Off

Early drop off care is offered on a weekly basis and can be purchased as an add-on to any morning camp session for grades 1-8 offered from June 1 – July 24. Unless otherwise noted, the central location for drop-off will be Gatti Hall in the Lower School Building. Fun safe activities will be supervised, and students will be allowed to enjoy a morning snack brought from home. Children may arrive at 7:45 a.m. or later. Staff will walk campers to their first camp or class. The weekly fee for Early Bird Drop Off is $30.

Lunch Bunch

A supervised lunch and recess is also offered on a weekly basis and can be purchased as an add-on to any morning or afternoon camp. Campers need to bring a bagged lunch from home. When registering for camp, two options will be offered for Lunch Bunch:

  • Lunch Bunch 1 – Students who are attending one camp session, either morning or afternoon, during the designated week can purchase Lunch Bunch 1 for $25.
  • Lunch Bunch 2 – Students who are attending a morning session and an afternoon session during the same week may select this option at no additional cost.

After Camp Care

Our After Camp Care option for rising 2nd - 6th grade students will be available to all of our afternoon and full day campers. After Camp Care participants will be escorted to the Lower School Gatti Hall where they will sign in at 4 p.m. and participate in a variety of fun activities such as arts and crafts, playground time, games, and more until 6 p.m. The weekly fee for After Camp Care is $50.

Camp Deadlines and Policies

Minimum Enrollment Deadline: Camps which have not met their minimum by May 1st will be canceled.

Registration Deadline:  With a few exceptions, most camps which attain minimum enrollment by May 1 will remain open until two weeks before the camp starts. A limited number of camps may close 3 weeks before the start date in order to allow for enough time for special supplies to be ordered. Check the registration website for details about individual camps. If you wish to register for a camp less than two weeks prior to the camp start, please contact the camp leader or Kathy Berry for further information.

Refund and Cancellation Policy:  The Walker School reserves the right to cancel any portion of a summer program in case of unforeseen circumstances. Refunds will be issued. No refunds will be given for missed days during a session period. To meet planning needs, after the May 1 deadline, no refunds will be given for withdrawals from a camp or workshop unless there are documented extenuating circumstances. However, if your plans change, you may transfer your student from one camp to another up to two weeks prior to the first day of camp. Please contact Kathy Berry, Summer Programs Coordinator, with any schedule changes. 

Extended Care Drop In Policy: Early Bird Drop Off, Lunch Bunch, and After Camp Care are offered as additional options for one-week camp sessions and cannot accommodate single or drop-in days. It is best to register for Early Bird Drop Off or After Care when registering for camp as spaces often fill up.

Late Fee: A late fee of $1 per minute will be charged if parents do not arrive by the appointed pick-up time following any camp session.
