Are you looking for a fun, educational camp that is exciting and different?

Look no further! Phinizy Swamp Nature Park, located in Augusta, Georgia (just minutes from downtown), has just the camp for you!

The Phinizy Center’s Education Staff welcomes all rising 1st through 6th graders to come join us for a fun-filled week of outdoor exploration in our Swamp Explorers Summer Camp!

Our days at camp will be spent exploring our 1,100 acre beautiful backyard, Phinizy Swamp Nature Park. Through guided nature hikes, hands-on science-based activities, and nature-themed arts and crafts, campers will get to explore the amazing wonders of our natural world.

Included in the weekly camp price, we will provide a reusable water bottle and a camp T-shirt. Parents will provide a packed lunch and a snack for each day.


“The kids were constantly engaged and excited when we picked them up each day. They loved the different activities that encompassed a range of activities – kept the kids active and learning. This is a MUST do camp for your kids – worth the extra drive and money and we will be coming back!”

“Perfect balance of outdoor time, crafts and learning! My child came home telling me about all they learned and saw during the day!”

“My children love Swamp Camp and look forward to it every year! I feel like the staff go above and beyond to make them feel welcomed and to keep them safe. The organization and communication from the camp is great and the kids love the activities!”
