GMS Summer Experience

Summer 2020 - COVID-19 Cancelation

After closely following local government guidelines, we have determined that we cannot hold the GMS Summer Experience this year. With all the fun, collaborative, hands-on activities, field trips, and shows we plan with the group, we do not feel we can bring that same experience to you in your homes. We hope you consider returning next summer, and we wish you and your families health and happiness during this time. All registered families and staff have been contacted individually with this news. 

The GMS Summer Experience offers a dynamic and exciting program where a girl can discover her strengths and express her voice through a variety of interdisciplinary activities that include engineering, design, performance art, tinkering, making, and scientific inquiry. To ensure that the girls are fully immersed in the GMS experience, the summer program is created and taught by GMS faculty.

Register by March 23 to secure a spot! Space is limited. We will send confirmation of your enrollment or whether you have been added to the waitlist.

Session I: STE(A)M 
June 15 - June 26

Age range: rising fifth to eighth grade girls

Girls draw on their critical thinking and problem solving skills to complete projects that are rooted in practical, hands-on exploration. Through collaboration and inquiry, girls engage in the iterative process to explore tinkering, engineering, science, making, and the arts. Our capstone project is centered around designing and building single-person boats and devices that the girls test on an all-day field trip to the beach.

Cost: $1100 per 2 week session
Time: 9:00 am to 3:00 pm, M-F
Location: The Girls’ Middle School campus

Girls take ownership of putting on a full musical production.

Families are invited to attend the performance on July 24th at 5:30pm.
