Camp Gumbo offers summer fun in two-week sessions
Gulf Coast youngsters from six to twelve years of age will have the opportunity to experience Coast Episcopal School’s Seemann Makerspace, learn to cook, explore music and art, and participate in sports and games when the independent school located in Long Beach opens its 25-acre campus this summer for Camp Gumbo.
A continuation of the school’s famous lagniappe program, which offers enrichment courses throughout the school year, Camp Gumbo is more of a smorgasbord of activities, according to Kim McWilliams, CES Dean of Academics.
“While our school year lagniappe programs are specific to one subject area, Camp Gumbo will be a feast of summer fun, packed with an array of fun and creative indoor and outdoor activities,” said McWilliams.
Camp Gumbo will be held Mondays through Thursdays from 8 a.m. to noon and will be offered in two, two-week sessions. The first session will be June 13-23, and the second will be July 11-21. Fees for each session are $250 per participant, and camp counselors will include many of the school’s faculty members.
