Camp DIVE (Discover, Inquire, Voice, Explore) was a partnership between the Clarke County School District, the University of Georgia College of Education, and the Athens-Clarke County community that ran for three summers, June 2016 to June 2018. The purpose of Camp DIVE was to provide an engaging and enriching summer experience for students in kindergarten through eighth grade, while also giving UGA students the opportunity to work with children and youth.
