Through two specially designed programs, The Country Day Camp at Goshen Friends School offers preschoolers to fifth graders an exciting and nurturing camp experience. During the summer months, Goshen Friends School’s ten-acre campus serves as the camp’s home base. The philosophy of the camp is guided by the same Quaker values that have been the backbone of a GFS education for over fifty years. The Country Day Camp is staffed by an enthusiastic and qualified team of teachers, aides, and junior counselors. Click here to view a brochure.
LITTLE EXPLORERS (for Preschoolers ages 2½-5)
Little Explorers Camp provides a creative and engaging variety of structured and self-select centers, including crafts, music, sports, science, games, and much more. Camp runs Tuesday through Thursday, 9 am-11:30 am, with Lunch Bunch and Extended Care options available if a longer day is desired. Little Explorers is a great first-camp experience that encourages independence and challenges developing skills.
Six weeks of camp are offered from June 9 through July 16. Sign up for one, a few, or all weeks! Sibling and multi-week discounts are available.
EXPLORERS (Ages 6-12)
Explorers Camp is a full-day camp. Tuesday through Thursday, Tr. Wes Davis (GFS P.E. teacher) guides the campers through games, sports, strength training, and more. The campers then prepare their own nutritional lunch and enjoy a variety of self-select activities designed to encourage small group or one-to-one interaction. The afternoon is spent diving into the week’s theme-based activity. At the end of the day, campers come together to enjoy a snack and reflect on the day’s activities so that new ideas and interests can be voiced.
Campers can also register separately for Monday and Friday outings to area parks, farms, and nature centers for fishing, hiking, scavenger hunts, swimming, and more!
Four weeks of camp are offered from June 8 through July 3 with both 3- and 5-day-per-week options. Mix and match one, a few, or all four weeks! Sibling and multi-week discounts are available.
