Summer Camps 2020

Our summer camp is designed to challenge boys entering grades 2 to 9 in the fall. Our faculty provide a hands-on experience in Art, Band, Broadcast, Critical Thinking, Cybersecurity, Robotics, Science, and Technology while our coaches bring their "A Game" in Baseball, Basketball, Football, Lacrosse, Soccer, Volleyball, and Wrestling. Our camps are about having fun and making friends while learning skills that will prepare boys for high school and beyond.

Griffin Club offers the flexible hours you need in a summer camp with supervision available before or after sessions. Campers attending a morning session can arrive as early as 8 am and campers attending an afternoon session can remain until 4 pm. Campers attending a morning AND afternoon camp can remain from 8 am
to 4 pm with the option to purchase lunch (alternating daily between subs and pizza) for the week or bring their own lunch.
