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 primary school students into success in the fall.

Jump Start makes learning fun! The program combines summer fun with pre-reading activities, hands-on math, science experiments, music and a variety of educational games.

Each morning, children work with an experienced, nurturing Gulliver teacher and a dedicated assistant on developing strong learning skills, while afternoons are spent with our fun, experienced counselors for age-appropriate activities including games, arts and crafts and cool fun in the water.
