Summer Camp 2012

Glenforest School is proud to present our 2012 Summer Camp opportunities along with financial assistance for those that qualify for partial scholarships.  The scholarships are made possible by our June 18, 2012 Glenforest Golf Classic coming to Golden Hills Country Club for its 2nd year. Together the golf event made it possible for more than $4,000.00 to aid our campers and camp materials needed for these wonderful children last year.

Special thanks to our 2011 sponsors including:

Bonitz, Rowin Partners, Danville Business Advisors, Cohn Construction, Exit Reality, Buris Law, Carolina Business Equipment, Greare, Dotty’s Cleaning, Edward Jones, Hill Construction, Palmetto Retna, Time Warner Cable, Quadco, Midland’s Foot, Brand Mortgage, Jamestown Coffee, Krispy Kreme, Sightline Graphics, Tyler Construction, and many more.

I was amazed by all the support we felt this past year and am thrilled to see our momentum for 2012!

This year’s camp line-up offers a unique assortment of summer programs, encompassing a wide variety of themes and topics, including: science, math, social skills and life skills focused activities and instruction, music, art and drama.  These camps offer “something for everyone” and will engage and appeal to kids with wide-ranging learning needs.  Many of the Glenforest School’s summer programs are specifically designed to accommodate students who learn “differently” such as specific learning needs (Asperger’s/ Autism Spectrum Disorder, ADD/ADHD, and Dyslexia) and those who learn “traditionally.”

The Glenforest School’s core values and beliefs such as “the integration of technology, enthusiasm for change, and discovery of self” make this a dynamic environment.  Please note: and you don’t have to be a Glenforest student to enjoy Glenforest camps! Every summer the school community looks forward to welcoming in lots of new friends and faces to help share in all the great summer fun!
