Did you miss out on attending this summer? 2019 Gryphons Summer Camp Registration opens February 4th @ 5:30am

 

Senior Activity Camp offers youth an opportunity to continue their summers in the camp program while being introduced to new, advanced and unique activities.  The camp acts as a transition to other opportunities that may exist for this specific age group within the Gryphon Camps or in their daily lives.  We emphasize positive social interactions, skill development, and working with others through a variety of fun recreations activities and sports.

During the week, campers will engage in camp activities that include sports, challenges, arts, daily swimming, and weekly off-campus excursions.  Please keep in mind that this camp focuses on allowing campers to try a variety of activities and make choices that are best suited to them and their interests.  

Each day (except for excursion days), campers will have one recreational swim. An off-campus bus trip will take place weekly, with the rain date being the following day.  Please note that all trip details will be finalized and sent to you prior to camp beginning.
