Camp Vision: Explore What's Possible 

Summertime at GFS invites children of all ages to explore and cultivate their interests, engage in the community surrounding Germantown Friends School, and foster new friendships during the summer. 

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 exploring what’s possible, campers will be confident no matter the answer.
