COVID-19 Information for Summer 2022

The COVID policies and protocols of the NGFS Summer Camp will be consistent with the policies and protocols as defined in the Summer Camp 2022 COVID Handbook; read the handbook here. All participants and families must understand and agree to adhere to these guidelines. Please be aware, these are one-week sessions; it is imperative that all participants follow the protocols and policies so that we are able to ensure the safety of everyone participating in our camp programs this summer.

 

Preschool Summer

  • For children ages 3-5 who have not attended full-day kindergarten
  • Preschool Summer camp is held on the Guilford Campus at 1128 New Garden Road.

The Preschool summer camp program is part of the NGFS Year Round Preschool option. Year-round Preschool students attend summer camps, and additional space is available for other Preschool students from the NGFS and Greensboro communities. The day begins at 8:00 and ends at 2:30. Families may drop off campers in the morning beginning at 7:45. After camp childcare is offered until 6 p.m. for an additional fee through our Extended Care program.

Preschool Summer offers a safe and comfortable environment for preschool children (ages 3-5) to play, socialize, and learn in the summer. Each session will have a central theme upon which activities are based. Activities include painting, cooking, playing in centers, building, drawing, Play-Doh, and outside play. Afternoon rest time is included; stuffed animal friends and blankets from home are welcome. Occasionally, Preschool campers will take a short walk next door to visit our community garden plot at the Guilford College Farm.
