JOIN US to explore your five senses in “Making Sense of Science!”

  All campers are invited to join in the fun and use their curiosity, creativity, and investigative problem-solving skills to enjoy science through hands-on experimentation and stimulating activities. These aspiring scientists will travel from class to class at Gesu School.  Certified teachers will use an inquiry-based approach to learning during the four classes each day.  Campers will explore their own “smarts” in a child-centered environment while participating in science and gym activities throughout the week. Camp groups consist of 13-15 campers of similar ages under the care of the camp director, teachers and older student counselors.
