Stephen Gaynor School offers Summer Camp for Early Childhood and Lower School students. The camps allow students to enjoy a variety of summer activities while maintaining important reading skills in a structured but enjoyable environment.
Gaynor’s EC Summer Camp is designed and run by our team of special educators, speech-language pathologists, and occupational therapists. This six-week program focuses on development of self-help, fine and gross motor, social, and cognitive/learning skills. Our therapists join teachers to help develop students’ skills through a variety of fun activities, including group games, cooking club, arts and crafts, and trips to the playground, Reading and math skills are also taught through small group instruction.
Gaynor students in our Lower School participate in a number of educational and enjoyable activities at Summer Camp to reinforce and further their academic skills, while having fun doing a variety of summer activities. Utilizing our Orton-Gillingham trained faculty, children will maintain and advance the reading skills learned during the academic year. Each morning, campers have small group Orton-Gillingham reading instruction, followed by a variety of fun activities including: sports, arts and crafts, science exploration, music and drama, cooking, and water play. Campers take weekly field trips around New York City.
