Is this scene familiar? You are standing in the aisle at your local toy store during the holidays trying to decide what would be the best gift. The problem is that the child in your life has just about every toy in the store. Legos? Check. Dolls? Check. Electronic gadgets? Check, check, and check. This season, give the ultimate gift — a week of summer camp at Greensboro Day School.

Greensboro Day School’s summer camps provide children with organized activities, time for free play, a nurturing and safe environment, and essential time in the outdoors — a great experience that offers extraordinary learning opportunities and enduring memories. At Greensboro Day School’s summer camps, children are safe to try new things and safe to be proud of who they are.

For only $140 (that’s a special $30 discount from our normal camp fee just for TMoM readers), you can send a child in your life to a fabulous weekly adventure. Be sure to mention TMoM when purchasing this gift of summer camp. See below for details on how to order your gift certificate.

Greensboro Day School summer camp is the ultimate gift, especially when you consider that 41 percent of toys and presents given during the holidays are broken by March.* A summer camp experience can’t be broken, or left on a shelf — it has to be lived.

Summer camp at Greensboro Day School includes Cheerleading, Drama, Cycling, Legos, Lacrosse, Pretty Princesses, Art, Hip Hop, Done by Duct Tape, Pottery, Girl Party, Horsepower, Taekwondo, Hogwarts Express, Basketball, Outdoor Adventure, Writing, Spanish, Technology, Cooking, DJ Camp, Soccer and SO MUCH MORE! All taught by adult instructors in a safe and caring environment.

As this holiday season approaches, offer the children in your life a gift that will provide them with time outdoors, a chance to play, an opportunity for experiential learning and growth — plus memories, skills, and experiences they will cherish their entire lives. Summer camp never breaks; it never expires or gets moldy. There won’t be a newer version released mid-summer, rendering all previous versions obsolete. Give the gift of a Greensboro Day School summer camp.
