Our six weeks of summer camp programming is subdivided into three two-week sessions for children completing kindergarten through eighth grade. The two-week timeframe is purposefully designed to give students the time necessary to dig deeply into subjects of interest.

Camps include Jr. Science Searchers; Math Marvels & More; Academy Americana; ECO Academy; Ancient Academy; GRC’s Space Academy; and GRC’s Advanced Space Academy. Through this wide variety of camps, students can explore math, a variety of sciences, history, finance, ecology, and creative expression.

Engaged, hands-on learning is emphasized. Campers also have P.T. (physical training) with activities that also pull from their curriculum, as well as daily recess.

Students do not have to be in their schools’ gifted program to participate. However, there is an application process, and we look at standardized test scores (or a recent report card) as well as a teacher recommendation.

Camps are held at:
Wydown Middle School

6500 Wydown Blvd., Clayton
