Summer Camp

CMS is proud to announce a partnership with Earth Hands, LLC. for Summer Camp 2021. Earth Hands is a project that CMS employee Brad Dawson has been working to establish for several years to bridge his love of the outdoors and desire to teach practical life skills, outdoor education, and sustainable practices to children and families. 

Our camp is a place where children can be themselves; where they are respected, valued, and allowed the freedom to explore and grow. Set on seven lush acres, our camp gives children a priceless opportunity to connect with nature on hiking trails, in outdoor classrooms, and under our famous magnolia climbing tree.

Our summer camp themes were selected to focus on areas not commonly seen in traditional camps. At CMS Summer Camp your children have an opportunity to learn something unique and gain life experiences connecting with nature.

2021 CMS Camp Session Schedule

  • Monday through Thursday: 8 AM – 4 PM | Friday: 8 AM – noon

    Let’s camp out for a week! Choose the best spot for your tent, prepare your environment and connect with friends. Based in nature and exploration, the camper will experience new challenges while building self-confidence and awareness. Fire basics, safety & care, water purification, identifying risks, first aid, and shelter & camp site preparedness will cultivate self-reliance in the great outdoors!

    The week culminates with an overnight campout Thursday evening on the CMS grounds! A parent/guardian must be present for the overnight campout. The parent/guardian is responsible for the camper during off-camp hours between 4 PM-8 AM. Friday we will pack everything up and end the day by 12 PM. For campers that don’t spend the night Thursday evening, Friday camp hours will be 8 AM-12 PM.

  • Monday through Friday: 8 AM – 4 PM

    Based in all things nature, we will discover beauty and creative ways to craft what the earth has given us to explore. Campers will experience wood working, stick & clay building, hand tools, painting with nature and much more! The camper’s creativity and individual expression is encouraged and supported. Join us as we have fun and let our artistic imaginations run wild!
