  • 6/11/2018 to 8/10/2018

    Age 3-Grade 6
    What do kids love about Forsyth Summer Discovery? It's summer in the backyard–with a giant slip & slide. The counselors are terrific and really play with the kids. Get the Forsyth experience with Summer Discovery: most of our camps are developed and led by Forsyth faculty. We offer a true variety of camps. Our high ropes course will be busy all summer. Sleepover Camp will be great fun. Great art camps. Basketball, baseball and soccer! What's new? Our vote for originality goes to Forsyth Survivor! Think puzzles, obstacle courses and gross food. There are lots more new camps for all ages, including great pre-primary camps like Pirates & Princesses. How about Tourist in your own Tour? Study maps, plot routes and create the group itinerary. How about STEAM? Students will question like a Scientist, design like a Technologist, build like an Engineer, create like an Artist, deduce like a Mathematician and, most importantly, play like a kid in 2 STEAM camps offered the last 2 weeks. So many great camps! Add Fun Lunch Fridays – often with a food truck – and Thursday Pizza & Movie Nights.

    Summer Discovery consists of 8 one-week sessions starting June 11 and running through August 10. Camp hours are 9:00a-3:00p Monday through Friday. Before and After Care is also available. There’s really nothing like Forsyth Summer Discovery. We hope you’ll join us.
