Savannah College Fair Expands Its Reach

The 4th annual Savannah and Low Country Private School College Fair is set for Thurs. Sept. 19 at Savannah State University.

More than 115 college admission reps will be in attendance, representing schools from local, national, and international locations.

The event, created by the college counselors at St. Andrew’s School and Savannah Country Day School, hosts Juniors and Seniors from all area private schools.

Building on the success of the event, the Georgia Education Articulation Committee (GEAC) has scheduled the annual Probe College Fair to occur on Wed.  September 18 also at Savannah State University. The Probe College Fair is free and open to the public from 6-8PM.

“Our event has been so successful for private school students and the Probe fair is hoping to build on this success by recruiting these same colleges to participate in their event for public school students,” said Wendy Sutton, St. Andrew’s College Counselor. “It’s a winning combination for all involved, allowing more students the opportunity to meet with colleges from around the globe.”

(Savannah Summer Camps 2019) Camp Moon River @ Savannah Country Day School

Wednesday, April 3rd, 2019

Camp Moon River Savannah Country Day School

Camp Moon River (CMR) at Savannah Country Day School : an overnight experience in a day camp package.

Camp Moon River is a full-day, traditional-style, summer day camp with an “overnight feel” for rising Kindergarten – 8th-grade children with a half-day program offered to rising Pre Kindergarten students who are 4-years old before their first day of camp. Optional extended care available.

Register online here. 

Camp Moon River’s mission is to provide a meaningful summer camp experience for campers and staff filled with personal growth, relationship building, and fun.

CMR is on the campus of the beautiful 65-acre Savannah Country Day School and is open to children from all schools.

The camp features daily water slides, weekly tie-dye and campfire experiences, as well as an incredible staff, the “CMR Crew.”

On Mondays, campers select a weekly choice they will attend every day, and each day they get to pick their daily choice. Daily and weekly choices allow campers to try new things or stick with their favorites as they progress through their CMR experience. Camp offers a variety of sports and games, arts and crafts, drama, cooking, dance and more. CMR also features Moon River field trips and Moon River Madness, an all-camp competition.

CMR is intentionally device-free. Even on a rainy day, you won’t see campers watching movies. Instead, campers play gym games, do an all-camp Pictionary or Charades competition, break out fantastic and creative building materials, chat and make friendship bracelets–the list is endless. The digital age is here to stay, but at CMR time is spent focusing on “IRL” connection.

Campers can attend one week or all eight weeks of Camp Moon River.

Find more information about Camp Moon River at Savannah Country Day School here.
