Anyone not listed on the Parent Authorization form attempting to pick up a student is reported to the Georgia Gwinnett College Campus Police.

Student Expectations

Georgia Gwinnett College has high expectations for all students. These expectations are designed to promote the well-being of each student and to ensure that each child is able to reach his/her fullest potential. Each student will be expected to do the following:

  • Respect the property and feelings of fellow summer camp students, teachers and student assistants as well as all others not directly associated with summer camp.
  • Always act in a manner that will promote a classmate’s opportunity to learn.
  • Have a positive attitude about learning and involvement at summer camp.
  • Politely communicate any concerns directly to summer camp teachers or student assistants.
Most important – HAVE FUN – it’s CAMP!!

No weapons of any kind are permitted on the Georgia Gwinnett campus. This includes guns, knives, switchblades, pocketknives, and any other instruments that could be used as weapons. Any student who brings a weapon to summer camp will be dismissed from the program, immediately.

A student who violates any of these rules will be immediately dismissed from the summer program.
