We will offer activities including storytelling, the visual arts, drama, music/movement, cultural and spiritual exploration and playing physical games for children currently in preschool through 5th grade. Preschoolers must have classroom experience, be potty trained and be comfortable away from parents. Cost for the week is $175 (similar camps cost $335) and $75 for preschoolers and includes lunch and a snack (preschoolers are given a snack only but can stay for lunch until noon for an additional $20.) Our staff will include professional artists and teachers as well as volunteers. For more info contact stgabrielartcamp@stgabrielonline.org.

Scholarships

St. Gabriel has been gifted with a limited number of full and partial scholarships to pay for or help with the cost of camp attendance. If a family’s income is within or close to the federal poverty guidelines or if families have extenuating financial circumstances that may qualify a family for a full or partial scholarship. Full and partial camp scholarships are generally awarded to families who are at 1 to 2 times the federal poverty level or less.  In 2017, this amount is $24,300 to $48,600 per year for a family of four. If you are already qualified for some form of public assistance, such as reduced school lunches and have the verification letter, or a card for a subsidized health care plan, copies of this documentation help us to qualify a family for a scholarship. All scholarship applications will be kept strictly confidential.
