Hey there, fellow adventurers! Can you feel it? That electrifying buzz in the air, the unmistakable signs that summer is just around the corner? Well, here at Stone Mountain Adventures (SMA), we're positively bursting with excitement as we eagerly anticipate the arrival of our favorite season.

As your Camp Director, let me tell you, I am beyond thrilled for what promises to be an epic 41st summer at SMA. With each passing day, as the last of the snow melts away and the vibrant hues of new flowers paint the landscape, I can't help but feel a surge of anticipation for all the adventures that lie ahead.

There's something truly magical about the changing of the seasons, isn't there? It's as if nature itself is giving us a playful nudge, whispering in our ears that it's time to shake off the winter chill and embrace the warmth and sunshine of summer. And boy, oh boy, do we have some incredible plans in store for our campers this year!

From heart-pounding mountain bike rides and rock climbing at Donation Rock to tranquil moments by the campfire on camping overnights, there's no shortage of excitement waiting to be discovered at Stone Mountain Adventures.  Whether you're a veteran camper returning for your 3rd summer or a newcomer eager to dip your toes into the world of adventure, there's a place for you here among our tight-knit community of campers and counselors at SMA!

But you know what truly sets SMA apart? It's the sense of camaraderie, the spirit of friendship, and the boundless laughter that fills the air from dawn 'til dusk. It's the feeling of being surrounded by friends that feel like family forging lifelong memories together while discovering parts of yourself you never knew existed.

So as we march towards SMA's 41st Summer, I invite you to join us on this incredible journey.. Let's embrace the warmth of the sun, the crispness of the mountain air, and the boundless possibilities that lie ahead. Together, let's make Stone Mountain Adventure's 41st summer one for the books—a summer filled with laughter, adventure, and endless fun!

See you soon, fellow adventurers!

Warm regards,


Jud Millar Camp Director, Stone Mountain Adventures (SMA)
