6th Grade Camp

Introducing 6th Graders to the Transit Experience

6th Grade Camp logo

August 18–20

It's almost camp time! 

Starting middle school is a big transition in a student’s life. It can be intimidating and even lonely. A small group of solid friends and caring adults will make a world of difference in this season, but meaningful community can be hard to establish.

At 6th Grade Camp, the content from the stage, small group activities, and insane games are shared experiences designed to jump-start friendships and strengthen bonds in your student’s new small group. This camp is the best place for your student to start their middle school years.

Registration is Open! 

Early Bird: $290 through July 17
Regular Registration: $310 through August 7

Packing List

We are nervous about this being our student’s first weekend away. What safety precautions have you implemented?

We completely understand. Each year, hundreds of parents trust us with their students for their first weekend away. We take their safety very seriously and keep a low adult leader to student ratio. Dozens of staff members are also onsite the entire weekend.

Will there be a medical professional at camp?

Yes. We will have two registered nurses at camp at all times. If your student needs to bring medication, you can leave it with a nurse at check-in to dispense at camp.

What if my student has a food allergy?

Please let us know when you register, and we will be happy to accommodate your student. Alternative meals are often available.

When is drop-off (check-in) and pickup for the weekend?

Check-in is at Buckhead Church on Friday, August 18, at 6:30 p.m., and pickup is at Buckhead Church on Sunday, August 20, at 1:00 p.m. If your student is registered, you will receive more details closer to camp time.

Where is 6th Grade Camp?

Camp is hosted at the Georgia FFA-FCCLA Center.

What if my sixth grader doesn’t know many other students?

Then 6th Grade Camp is the perfect place to be! Students will form healthy relationships in their small groups that they will build on for the next three years.

What if my student has a conflicting event or game?

Your student won’t regret prioritizing 6th Grade Camp over an outside activity. While we would love for your student to attend the entire retreat, if that isn’t possible, you may pick them up early.

Will there actually be “camping” at 6th Grade Camp?

No. 6th Grade Camp is not a camping trip. Small groups stay in air-conditioned cabins with their adult leaders. Don’t worry about packing a tent.

How do I get more details?

Can you offer financial support?

Yes. We have scholarships available to families that need assistance. We never want a student to miss an event because of financial issues. You can find an application here
