Discover Our 2019 Summer Camp Opportunities in Marietta!
Summer isn’t just about taking a break from school. It’s about cultivating new interests, embarking on adventures, and making memories. At Discovery Point Macland Circle, we’re offering summer camp opportunities for children throughout the Marietta area. Our summer camp program includes a range of exciting activities and skill-building challenges to encourage children to have a blast while learning. These activities are broken down into weekly “mighty missions” that encourage campers to see the superhero in themselves. With engaging selections from children’s literature at the heart of each mission, children are able to continue developing their reading skills as they make real-world connections with the themes in these stories.

Using Literature to Inspire a Fun Summer Camp Experience in Marietta
Each week, our program uses children’s literature to inspire a new theme for our mighty missions. These literature selections provide context for our mighty missions and allow children to relate to the stories they read in an active manner. By integrating lessons from literature into our activities, students are able to gain a greater understanding of values like sportsmanship, friendship, kindness, and self-esteem. By the end of the summer, they’ll realize that you don’t have to fly in order to be a superhero. You just have to be ready to make an adventure out of every opportunity for learning.
