"We encourage curiosity, promote leadership, applaud teamwork, build confidence, and foster respect. Since many parents in the area are looking for things to do in June and before summer vacations and camps kick in, we created the Grey Nun Summer Academy to offer an equal balance of creativity and learning that will provide your child with one of the most enjoyable summer experiences possible," says Grey Nun Academy Head of School Deborah Kost.
GNSA provides children with interactive fun and hands-on experiential activities. Each week features a different theme, providing every child with opportunities to discover new areas of interest.
"Our small camper-to-teacher ratio is ideal for achieving these goals. Building on the wisdom of the Academy’s more than five decades of leadership in education, our two week June camp draws upon the strength of our exceptional faculty and staff. Our serene and secure 90-acre campus sets a superb backdrop for the perfect camp experience for children to develop academically, athletically, and aesthetically," added Kost.
