Welcome to First Camp
First Camp which includes an after school program and a summer program is a ministry of First Baptist Decatur. For over thirty years we have been committed to furnishing quality care for elementary aged children in the Decatur area. Our goal is to provide the students in our care with a safe, healthy, and educational environment. First Camp is licensed by Bright from the Start, an agency of the State of Georgia. First Camp is divided into two programs, First Camp After School during the school year and First Camp Summer during the summer.
First Camp After School Program serves the children of the Decatur City Schools, Laurel Ridge Elementary, and The Museum School. We drive vans to these schools and pick up students in kindergarten through 5th grade and bring them back to the Camp. At First Camp they are given a nutritious snack, have large muscle play time, arts and crafts, science experiments, and homework time. There are options for a yoga class and music lessons at an additional cost. Registration is for the complete semester, Fall and Spring. Families have the option of sending their child 2, 3 or 5 days to after school camp. First Camp also holds full day camps with field trips during the Decatur City break weeks.
First Camp Summer Program starts the week after Decatur City Schools complete their year and ends the week before Decatur City Schools resumes. It is open to children who have COMPLETED KINDERGARTEN through FIFTH GRADE. We do not take any younger children or older. Most weeks registration is for 4 or 5 days, full day camp. 4 days if the child will not be attending the field trip that week or 5 days or all the days of the week. Each week students will be going on a field trip. Field trips in the past include Six Flags, Georgia Aquarium, Mayfield Dairies, and a Braves game.
