Summer at McGehee

McGehee camp for girls and boys aims to make sure every camper has the best summer ever!  Summer is a time for fun and adventure, and our dedicated staff of McGehee faculty work tirelessly to create and promote an environment where campers have fun, make new friends, and try new things. We pride ourselves on a low camper-counselor ratio, allowing us to customize each camper's experience so that they can maximize their summer fun! Weekly sessions include fun activities such at Art, Sports,  STEM, dress up days, and special events.

We plan to begin camp under the city’s Phase 1 guidelines, which means that we are required to severely limit group size to no more than 10 (including adults). We have been advised to keep individuals in static cohort groups together throughout the day, including the counselors and staff.
 
Please be advised that we are not able to run any before care or aftercare for camp, as we are not able to adhere to the guidelines regarding static cohort groups. However, we will be extending the camp day slightly to help accommodate parents’ schedules. 

Sign up for one weekly session or all seven for flexible summer planning!
