With last week’s warm weather and the first day of spring in sight, it is time to start thinking about summer camp. You do not have to travel far to provide your child with a fun filled, unforgettable summer. If you want to find a camp where your child can enjoy wonderful adventures, make new friends, and spread their wings, Grenville Baker Summer Camps are here from July 9 through August 24. We have weekly and daily options available.

This summer, for our Travel Camp for Grades 4 – 12, campers are dropped off at the Club each morning to spend three days adventuring.
