I read a review about there being inadequate supervision based on the number of children in the camp. What's the camp counselor to student ratio?

Great question! I read that review as well and am not sure why she feels that the ratio is unsafe. :( We abide by (actually usually exceed) the Atlanta Public Schools minimum guidelines of 20:1 (Kindergarden); 23:1 (Grades 1-3) and 30:1 (grade 4-8). In fact, we actually hired too many camp counselors at one point last year and the ratio was about 10-15:1 on some camp days. We usually fall somewhere in the middle of 10:1 to 20:1. We are also a certified camp by "Bright From The Start - Georgia Department of Early Care and Learning" and uphold strict safety precautions to remain certified. Although we have never had any mishaps, this year we have really beefed up security measures, implenting a new system of electronic photograph required for each "approved" adult allowed to pick-up the child, in addtion to extra administrative staff working by exit/entry doors. Thanks for your question, and we hope to see your kid(s) in camp!
