Spring Break at GNS

Spring Break at GNS

GNS is proud to unveil a series weekly camps available to families during scheduled school breaks. Each will offer fun, exciting experiences grounded in the school’s mission and vision.

Camps will operate provided that a minimum number of participants register to take part. Each will be led by a GNS faculty or staff member, and the safety and well-being of participants will be paramount. During Spring Break, we will offer several camps for students on either a daily or weekly basis.

The slate of programs will be managed by our Out of School Programs Manager, Emily Harris. A recent Kinesiology graduate from the University of Victoria, Emily is also coaching volleyball at GNS. Emily is keen to enhance all aspects of the Out of School Program, and will be soliciting advice from colleagues and parents to help ensure that the programs offered are engaging, interesting and of the highest quality. If you have any suggestions about the current program or ideas for camps the school might consider implementing, please contact Emily at eharris@mygns.ca.
