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, as well as a few popular classes for adults.

This year's summer camps and classes will be held June 2 through July 25 on our well-appointed 32 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.
