Fun in the Jungle Summer Camp

  • Fun in the Jungle is taking on a new look this summer! So what’s new in the Jungle?

    Each week will be theme-based with activities to enhance our student learning and experience. We will be replacing the weekly field trips and instead are looking to partner with local community partners to sponsor activities. This allows us to both reduce costs and allow students to appreciate all our community has to offer.

    Who is Fun in the Jungle for?

    GVCS students entering grades K-6 in the fall.

    What will kids do at camp?

    Students will have the opportunity to participate in STEAM, Olympic Style Competitions, Games, Crafts, Swimming, and Musical activities each week all while earning points for their color team. There is something for everyone each day to explore and enjoy.

    Free breakfast and lunch is provided.

    Swimming will take place every day in the afternoon (send swimsuits and towels each day).
