Camp Registration Round 2 – New Spaces and Changes

These are registration changes and additions to GSCO’s summer camps. Every year we hold a few camp spaces back so we can maximize opportunities in camps that are most popular. We have created a few more of our most popular sessions, and modified some with themes that have been popular with girls this year! We’ve also caught a couple of typos, noted here too.

Thanks to Ruddy and Obi Joe, our camp directors, and their teams for their hard work dreaming up our summer camp sessions!

Register for these new sessions online March 2 at 9am!
New sessions and camper spaces will not be listed online until this time.
