Summer at Gillispie

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

Our 2017 elementary program 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.

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

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