“The number one piece of advice I would give parents/guardians who are interested in registering their child(ren) for Camp Elachee is to think ahead,” shares Kristin Love, Elachee Programs Registrar and Facility Operations Manager. “Quite a few of our most popular camp weeks fill up prior to the first week of camp even starting, so early registration is a must to be sure your camper makes it in to the camp week of his/her choice.”

Lend a Helping Hand – Share the News!
“One of the most rewarding aspects of Camp Elachee is that we are able to offer financial aid to families hoping to immerse their child(ren) into nature but have financial difficulties in doing so,” Kristin explains. “Elachee is able to accommodate these needs of our community due to very generous donors who make this opportunity available for children in the area.”
Elachee is accepting Camp Elachee financial aid inquiries until May 1, 2019. Please call 770-535-1976 to get started.
