Summer Camp in La Jolla at Gillispie School

Gillispie opens its unique summer camps in La Jolla to students from all schools age 3 through Grade 6.

Our Elementary Summer Session promises exciting offerings such as chemistry, engineering, and robotics, as well as perennial favorites: LEGO® construction, theater, reading, sports, and art classes.

For Kindergarten through Grade 6 students, a fee-based afternoon session offers swimming at the Coggan Aquatic Center. The center’s swim instructors teach group lessons and campers will be placed in the appropriate swim‐level group and learn skills that will improve their swimming ability.

The Early Childhood Camp at Gillispie is made up of 8 one-week sessions for ages 3-5 running from 9:00 a.m. – 3:30 p.m. designed to keep your child engaged and active all summer.

Registration is done online and classes are filled on a first-come-first-served basis.

Registration for this summer will be available in early 2018.

For more information, contact our summer sessions director at summer@gillispie.org.
