The Explorers Day Camp offers five weeks of old-fashioned summertime fun, designed to develop campers’ curiosity and creativity through weekly theme-oriented sessions. Each week, Explorers will participate amazing activities designed by GFS’s own LS art teacher Heather Chu Marvill and ASP Art Coordinator, Joli Harnish. In addition, campers will enjoy science, cooking, nature, and sports-related activities. The GFS campus will serve as the primary location for exploration and skill-building. Half-day field trips to nearby cultural destinations provide opportunities for hands-on learning and discovery. Campers will build confidence, forge new friendships, and grow through new experiences, all within a safe and fun-focused environment. Swims at the Germantown Cricket Club during weeks #1, #2, and #3 will add to the summertime fun and plans are in the works to include swimming for weeks #4 and #5 as well! Explorers Day Camp themes for 2016 will be Mad Science, Time Travel in Germantown, Under the Sea, Animal Planet, and The Olympics: “Ready, Set, Rio!” Explorers Day Camp is divided into two groups: Adventurers (Kindergarten–Grade 2) and Trailblazers (Grades 3–4). Campers are welcome to register for either a full or half day of Explorer fun! Early drop off is available free of charge after 8:15 a.m.; Extended Day coverage until 5:30 is available at an additional fee. Please note: All field trips will take place in the morning and the field trip fee (to cover transportation and entrance fees) is included in the price of the morning camp session as well as the full-day session for each camp week (this is the reason why the morning sessions is more expensive than the afternoon sessions of the Explorers Day Camp). Bus transportation is available to and from Center City for $100/week provided 17 campers sign-up on or before June 1 for transportation during the desired week(s).
