Family Owned and Operated
Founded by Josh Powell in 1972, Josh Powell Summer Day camp has been family owned and operated from day one. After Josh Powell passed away, Karen Powell continued operating the camp until 2014, when she decided to pass the torch to family friend (also, 10-time Josh Powell counselor and 24-year 1st grade teacher), Suzanne Quinlan, and her nephew, Jason Kay, a 3-time camper at Josh Powell and an experienced camp counselor of various camps in the Atlanta area. We (Jason and Suzanne) are bringing our experience to JPC in order to continue serving the children of our community during such a formative time of their lives. Our intent is to help mold your rising 1st, 2nd or 3rd graders as best we can in the time we have with them. The lessons they learn in the weeks during camp will last them a lifetime - there are few experiences like the unplugged and get-dirty experience of Josh Powell Summer Camp. Karen Powell will continue to help operate the camp to ensure the spirit, stories and traditions of the camp are carried on in the most complete way possible.
