GNCS STEAM Summer Camp 2019

Come join our GNCS teachers for a STEAM summer camp full of great science topics, outdoor exploration, learning about different artists with age-appropriate crafts and lots of play!  Your children will enjoy having snacks and lunch with their friends every day.  The summer camp will run for 8 weeks this summer, and parents have the option to choose 4 or 5 days a week.   Parents can also choose a start time of 8 am or 9 am, and students can stay until 1 pm, or stay later with aftercare. Children ages 3 years and up are invited to enroll at our summer camp. If your children have friends that would like to come to our camp, please feel free to invite them. Children do not need to be enrolled in our school to attend summer camp. Siblings get a 20% discount on camp tuition.  In order to cover costs, we need to have a minimum of 7 students attend per week on average.  Please sign up ASAP to take advantage of the early bird price and to help us ensure we have met the minimum. Parents must sign up for a minimum of 3 weeks in order to register.

We have provided a lot of flexibility this year with our summer camp hours, as many parents have requested more coverage.
