  • + Who leads camps at GPS?

    Most of our camps are led by GPS faculty and coaches who have years of experience teaching and coaching girls. Carefully curated experts are also brought on campus to enrich our offerings in certain areas, such as for our Safe Sitter Camps. And key to your daughter’s time at camp is the interaction and mentorship she’ll receive from her counselors—GPS students who appreciate the value of girl-to-girl connections and provide big-sister moments all summer long.
