Wonder - Learn - Play


My kids love summer camp!  As a parent, I love that my children are doing several hands-on activities that you might not see in a traditional summer camp environment.  They especially love meeting the animals and exploring the gardens.

  • Animal Encounters
  • Outdoor Classroom
  • Gardening Opportunites
  • Water Activities
  • Community Service Hours available for HS students
  • Jr. Counselor programs
  • ​Elementary and Preschool Programs available all summer


Jr. Kindergarten

This year has flown by!  It is so great to see how much growth each student has made in their own way.  A big thank you to all the parents this year.  Thank you for raising such wonderful children.  It has been a pleasure to work with your child and I am confident they are beyond ready for kindergarten next year!    Please make sure to come back and visit your family here at LGCS! 

Drop-off and Pick-Up: If you need to bring your child to school late, please just walk them up to the Preschool classroom. If you are arriving late for pick-up, please walk up to the main door on the Kindergarten side to pick up your child.

Outdoor Clothes: We will go outside as much as possible. Please label all of your child's clothes and shoes.

Colder Weather: Please remember to send your child to school with a hat, gloves, snow boots and snow pants when necessary. You are welcome to leave an extra set at school if it easier for you.

Muddy/Wet Weather: We will still go outside unless it is raining. You are welcome to leave rain boots at school.
