Summer FUN at GNS

Glenlyon Norfolk School is pleased to offer a variety of fun summer camps for students age 4½ to 17. 
Arts, athletics, kayaking, creativity, magic and more—our summer programs offer something for everyone! Half- and full-day options are available as is free extended care where age-appropriate, and all camps and activities are open to both GNS and non-GNS children and families.

Our leaders combine creative, active and collaborative ideas to deliver a quality program that emphasizes truth, courage, caring, individuality and community. The leader to student ratio is 1:10.

COVID-19 Camp Refund Policy

Given the uncertainty of the current situation, full refunds will be provided for registered participants if the School’s Leadership Team (through guidance from Public Health) determines our school should remain closed and our camp program is unable to operate due to social distancing requirements or health concerns related to COVID-19. We recognize the uncertainty this creates for parents and students alike and we appreciate your on-going understanding to keep our community healthy and safe.
 
Once our camp programs are open and cleared to operate, this will be communicated to our families and we will revert back to our regular refund policy: All requests for refunds must be made in writing via email to eharris@mygns.ca. Refunds or transfers, less a $50 administrative charge per camp, per child, will be issued for all camp cancellations up to 2 weeks (14 days) before the first day of the camp.
