Activities

At Camp Magnolia, we plan our Activities with Our Mission in mind. Many activities will be offered on a rotating basis, such as MWF or TTH.   Note: Some activities may not be offered due to insufficient interest or inclement weather. Actives will vary daily; offerings may vary from session to session based on camper interest. 

Campers will gain confidence and have fun as they learn the skills needed for this exciting sport!

 

 

 

 

Art projects may include clay, crafts from the farm and nature, such as corn husk dolls & sheeps wool, drawing and painting, jewelry making, knitting, felting, leather crafts, metal crafts, puppet making, sewing, weaving and basketry.  Performing Arts may include Camp Songs, Puppet Shows, and Skits.

 

 

 

We have planned activities in the barnyard, with the farm animals, in the garden, stream and pastures that integrate engaging activities with concepts of Science, Engineering, Art & Math (SEAM.)  Additional, we offer Environmental Education Games and Activities and Fort Building (engineering and design.)

 

 

 

Field games with noodles and hula hoops, ping pong, basketball, volleyball, badminton, ultimate frisbee are offered in our playing field.  Indoor games may include board games, chess, card games and puzzles

 

 

 

 

Campers will have the opportunity to spend two mornings with our wonderful horses, learning how to care for them and of course a riding lesson in the arena! Additional Group Riding Lessons are available in the mornings before camp for an additional fee.

 

 

 

 

A fun way to cool off on a warm summer's afternoon in our picturesque shaded stream!  Usually the stream is too shallow for paddles, but campers have fun splashing around!

 

 

 

 

 

Literary opportunities include our camp reading program, offered during our quiet time after lunch with books and magazines about horses, farm animals, gardening and science.  Campers may select books to read to themselves, in addition to our daily group story time.  Story Time Stories are often about horses, farm animals and gardening, with themes about creativity, inclusion, following rules, being a good friend and caring for the environment.  Nature Journals are a favorite of all campers and staff, and give campers an opportunity to draw and write about their day.  Finally, all campers enter the River of Words Art and/or Poetry Contest, a national contest for which there is local recognition in the stare of Georgia, as well as the grand prize, which is a trip to Washington, DC, as well as local recognition.  

"My children had the best time at Magnolia Farm's day camp last summer, and can't wait to go back.  There were so many fun activities to do, and I was so glad they were outdoors all day.  The program is well run, and the staff is warm and caring.”   Anna R., Roswell
