Our Divisions

Each of our summer programs are tailored to be age appropriate and flexible to serve the needs of each child. With each new year, children “graduate” to a higher division, where they encounter new adventures, excitement, and challenges, all built on the CGI hallmarks of safety, fun, and unconditional love.


Explorers - Entering K & 1st
Trail Blazers - Entering 2nd, 3rd & 4th Grade
Pioneers -Entering 5th - 6th grade
Teen Camp (Entering grades 7-9)

 

Primary Program:
Our daily combination of Sports, Crafts, Swimming, Trips and Drama have children motivated, excited and on-their-toes. Summer highlights include Create-a-Camp - where kids custom design a part of their day, weekly trips, like fishing, boating, and skating, and overnights and adventure programming for our Pioneers. To run our specialized programming, CGI employs coaches, swim instructors, artists and specialists, and offers a host of extra curricular activities and programs for the entire family.

Explorers (children entering K5)
Our Explorers division combines the best of early childhood care and the broad array of CGI activities. In creating this division, we have carefully designed a "camp-within-a-camp", which broadens the children's horizons and is mindful of their age and emotional and physical needs. Experienced early childhood professionals staff this division of camp.

Trail Blazers
Our second division is fully integrated into the camp program, and benefits from our coaches, swim instructors, artists and specialists, and features longer trips and expanded nature programming.

Pioneers
Special programming for campers entering 5th & 6th graders include:
• Canoeing  & Camping Trip - 2 day one night
• Great America
• High Ropes Course
• Adventure Programming and Outdoor Living
 
Teen Camp
(For girls entering grades 7-9)
As kids grow, so does their ability for self-discovery, adventure, bonding with peers,  and appreciating group dynamics.  Under the leadership of a team of senior staff, teen camp combines weekly overnights and camping excursions, team-building initiatives, swimming, athletics, and lots of CGI friendship and spirit to impart timeless values and an appreciation of others. Our two-day trips include many long-distance trips.
