Explorer Camp (Grades 1-5)
Explorer Camp is the vibrant, varied and fun-filled cornerstone of Summertime at GFS. Explorer Camp encourages campers’ curiosity and creativity as they dig deep into areas of personal interest, stretch their capabilities, and build lasting friendships in a fun, imaginative, and supportive camp environment.
Explorer Camp is for campers who will be entering grades 1 to 5 for Fall 2017.
On top of two daily mini-courses, each week is rooted in a group-focused routine featuring:
- Daily drop-in activities ranging from parkour to puzzles, epic dance moves to conversational French.
- Weekly field trips to destinations around Philadelphia.
- Twice-weekly swims at the Germantown Cricket Club
- Friday’s Explorer Showcase and Ice Cream Fun-dae- Parents and loved ones invited!
Because enrollment is limited, mini-courses will be filled on a first-come, first-served basis; therefore, campers who sign up early will have first pick!
In case a selected mini-course already has filled, campers will be asked to select a third, "just-in-case" mini-course preference during registration. (Note: This does not apply when a camper has selected an Intensive.)
While every effort will be made to place campers in their mini-courses of choice, Explorer Camp reserves the right to assign campers to mini-courses at its discretion.
