GPC Summer Camp offers a variety of activities, including arts & crafts, science experiments, music, open & thematic play, physical challenges, gardening, and plenty of outdoor time at Hamilton Park and other local field trips.
As our sessions are two-weekly, campers will make friends while exploring the outdoors, learning about the environment, and cooling off at the splash pad!
Garden Preschool is a parent led cooperative that draws heavily on the Bank Street methodology for child development and education. Our nurturing atmosphere and homely school setting makes it the perfect environment for children of all backgrounds to develop, create and experience. Our Summer Camp captures and adapts this approach to produce a fun, varied and engaging summer experience for children between the ages of 3 and 5.

2020 Summer Camp Themes
Camp this year has been focused around the elements. Whilst a lot of the camp content is dictated by the children themselves there will always be fun, educational and varied activities for them to experience each week. We anticipate many visits to the Hamilton Park splash pad as well as digging and planting at Brunswick Community Garden where we have our own garden. Kite making is always popular, as is composting, cooking, flower art, obstacle courses, volcanoes and dramatic play. Bubbles and slime are likely to feature heavily as well as pin badge making, crafts, books & stories, bird houses, treasure hunts and outdoor games.
A more detailed curriculum will be published prior to each session.
