About UsAt Camp Serenbe, we do our best to teach kids how to make the most of nature. We provide a day camp experience on the sustainable grounds of the Inn at Serenbe including play, crafts and learning experiences that are unique to any other.
We guide our campers through nature with outdoor activities, swimming, canoeing, trail hiking, fishing, horseback riding and even the basics of gardening. Kids can interact and feed our village of animals and challenge themselves on ropes courses, zip lines and scavenger hunts. We do arts, crafts, drama, take hayrides, sing camp songs and meet special guests.
Our programs are designed for kids ages of 3 -12. Campers are split based on age and ability into groups of 12-20 campers. Our goal is to make sure every kid has the time of their lives amongst nature and friends.
Camp Serenbe started with the dreams of one little girl. From the time she was a kid, Kara Nygren had hopes and dreams of starting a camp at Serenbe – the place where she was raised and called home. When the community began to grow, there were a few families with young kids, and Kara saw the opportunity to turn her dreams into a reality. She presented the idea to her family and the other families in the community and everyone was excited by the idea of a local summer camp.
At that point, Dallas Nevins was new to the Serenbe community. Dallas had previously taught pre-school in Atlanta, loved crafts and had two small kids of her own. Kara presented the idea to Dallas, and she was excited to join in the development of Camp Serenbe. Dallas served as co-director from the summer of 2007 to 2011.
The camp began in 2007 by offering community activities and workshops to Serenbe and the larger Chattahoochee Hills Community. In 2009, the camp officially opened its doors as a full-time summer camp. We moved to the grounds of the Inn at Serenbe and began to offer week-long programs. The rest is history.
At Camp Serenbe, we love children and have a great passion for nature, animals and the outdoors. We believe all of these things are such an important part of childhood and help teach a range of important life lessons. Through the camp, and life at Serenbe, we include this as a regular part of every day life.
