GCS SUMMER CAMPS

Grace Christian School has ignited the passion in our students to discover the world around them through exploration and investigation. We are thrilled to extend the GCS learning experience beyond the school year calendar and beyond our current student body.

In July 2021, Grace Christian School will host its first Knight’s Summer Camps for students in Grades One – Six. These half-day camps will be led by GCS staff, many of whom have been recognized on the regional, national, and international stage for their work in science, technology, engineering, arts, mathematics, and athletics.

Students will work collaboratively and engage in advanced learning activities that will allow them to develop the 21-century skills of leaders, thinkers, and innovators.
