Camp Vision: Discover What's Possible 

We invite campers to be inquisitive and curious about themselves, their community and their world all while emphasizing traditional summertime fun. Each camp is designed for campers to answer that important life question: “What will my unique contribution to the world be?” By discovering what’s possible, campers will be confident no matter the answer.


At GFS’ day camp children learn new and exciting things through reading and experience while fostering new friendships during the summer. Campers spend most of the day outdoors, playing games, swimming, and participating in theme-based activities led by our amazing team of counselors. 


GFS Athletic Camps are led by our varsity coaches and are designed for kids of all ages to experience the love of the game. We also host a 4-week Community Basketball program that is in its 54th year!


Specialty Camps at GFS are 1-week experiences that enable campers to go deeper into an area of interest. Specialty Camps are led by community partners, outside instructors, or GFS teachers and are co-led by GFS Upper School students. Coding, Theater, Art, and Music - there is something for everyone!
