2017 Summer Camp Registration

Step 1:  Apply to The Enrichment Center | FAQs

Summer Camp at Grayson offers gifted students in the Philadelphia region weekly sessions to engage their minds and pursue passions with their intellectual peers during the summer break.  Programs are designed to challenge your child to think critically, ask and answer difficult questions, solve problems, and stretch their minds. Our courses are for FUN, not curricular advancement.  Prior to registration, all campers must first file an application (note:  this is not required if your child is a Grayson student or has previously attended an Enrichment Center weekend or summer camp program).

All summer camp sessions are held at The Grayson School, 35 N. Malin Road, Broomall, PA.
