In the middle of Fayette County, Ga., is Camp Southern Ground — where goodness grows. The camp staff strives to teach campers about kindness, community, and respect for differences. At CSG, different isn’t better or worse, it’s just different.

Camp Southern Ground operates with the purpose of getting all kids outside in an inclusive and tech-free environment, and it’s looking for summer staff members to help attain that goal.

“From day one, our campers will grow, harvest, and eat food from our on-site organic garden. They will learn and develop fun life skills like bike riding, swimming, cooking, archery, and more,” according to  Staff Director Emily Marcotte.

“Kids here will make a mess eating s’mores around the campfire, create projects in our art and STEM classes, and push themselves out of their comfort zones on our amazing 1,200-foot zip line and multi-level ropes course,” she said.

“This is a place where young people can explore over 400 acres of wilderness, build relationships with their peers and counselors, and make memories that will last a lifetime,” she said.
