"My 10 year old daughter had never been to a summer camp before and was a bit nervous when I dropped her off. When I picked her up, she didn't want to leave, said it was the best week of her life"

Elementary/Junior High/All Ages

Rising 1st - 10th graders are grouped by similar ages and participate in traditional summer camp activities.

Leaders - In - Training Program

Rising 10th & 11th graders live together in a cabin and participate in traditional camp activities and in special leadership training and team building. As skills and confidence increase, LIT's assist with leading some aspects of camp programs. This program is a stepping stone for becoming a member of Camp Gravatt's staff but does not guarantee selection for staff in future summers. The program spans two sessions and the LIT's will spend the two nights between session participating in additional activities and programming at Gravatt.

This summer, the Camp Gravatt Post Office will be available on registration day.
