Through our wide variety of Summer Camps, students can explore math, a variety of sciences, history, finance, ecology, and creative expression.
Our six weeks of summer academies programs are subdivided into three two-week sessions for children completing kindergarten through eighth grade. The two-week timeframe is purposefully designed to give students the time necessary to dig deeply into subjects of interest.
Camps include Jr. Science Searchers; Math Marvels & More; Academy Americana; ECO Academy; Ancient Academy; GRC’s Space Academy; GRC’s Advanced Space Academy; Novel Engineering; Stop Motion Animation; and Animal Academy.
Engaged, hands-on learning is emphasized. Campers also have P.T. (physical training) with activities that also pull from their curriculum, as well as daily recess.
Students do not have to be in their schools’ gifted program to participate. However, there is an application process, and we look at standardized test scores (or a recent report card) as well as a teacher recommendation.
Summer Academies Descriptions
Camps oﬀer new themes and activities each year. For example, students who attended Space Academy last year can come back this summer for all new material! Some students take the “same camp” 3 or 4 years in a row, with fresh curriculum each summer.
