SUMMER @GUS Day Camp
“The SUMMER@GUS Day Camp is committed to providing the ultimate day camp experience,” says Director of Auxiliary Programs Nancy Hartmann. Camp adventures will include hiking on Glen Urquhart’s nature trails, exploring rock walls, playing survivor, learning outdoor skills, and competing in group challenges.
Creative arts projects will encourage campers to delve into music, dance, crafts, drama, and improv. Exploration will provide opportunities for campers to experience the natural world through guided discovery along the school’s many trails, streams, wetlands, gardens, and in the GUS greenhouse.
“We want to create a camp community that really takes advantage of our spectacular 23-acre campus, with plenty of opportunity for outdoor fun. This includes an array of outdoor activities, sports and games, with everything from archery, frisbee golf, and ga-ga, to nine square in the air, four square, basketball, and soccer. There will also be special events and theme days, such as ice cream sundaes, a camp carnival, and crazy sock day,” adds Hartmann.
Hartmann comes to Glen Urquhart after nine years at Brooks School as director of their highly successful summer day camp. Prior to Brooks, Hartmann was associate director of the Hale Reservation for two years and was a senior staff member for the Girl Scouts of Eastern Massachusetts for fourteen years. Hartmann has been a leader of the American Camping Association - New England and a board member of the Massachusetts Camping Association. She is also the Pingree School varsity volleyball coach, an American Red Cross lifeguard instructor trainer, and a water safety instructor trainer.
Hartmann believes that, today more than ever, the right camp experience is truly meaningful and powerful in supporting children as they develop character, confidence, and creativity in a healthy, safe, and fun community.
