Summer Programs

JOIN US FOR THE SUMMER!

Each summer the Learning Center at the Gillam-Grant offers many learning opportunities for our community. We offer a variety of Summer Camps from Robotics and Programming to Pet Care and Cooking.

We are open Monday-Friday by appointment for your summer tutoring needs. Tutoring can help prevent summer learning loss or help students pass their August regents.

Please note that all information for our summer programs is from the Summer of 2016 and is for informational use only. Our official Summer 2017 schedule will be released this spring.
