Jump Start into Camp Gulliver

Whether your child is new to school, new to Gulliver or just looking for big summer fun, this program will help Jump Start students into both camp and success in their primary grade level in the fall.

Mornings start at the Camp Gulliver assembly, after which children move to the classroom for developmentally appropriate learning practices such as pre-reading activities, hands-on math, science experiments, music and a variety of educational games.

An experienced Gulliver teacher and a hand-picked assistant lead each class, helping the children learn how to learn in the nurturing Gulliver environment.

After lunch, the children head out with their counselors for age-appropriate activities including games, arts and crafts and cool fun in the water.

Times: 8:30 a.m. - 3:30 p.m.; includes lunch 8:30 a.m. - 11:45 a.m.; half day (no lunch and no swimming)

Check back in early 2017 for next summer’s information.
