SUMMER BEGINS HERE!
Unplugged and unstructured–true summer words. Last summer at Forsyth Summer Discovery, we did our part to sustain childhood, to give kids time to breathe, to have fun, to be kids, to play.
This is a place where kids can try new things, stretch their imaginations, explore, invent, play hard or just play. Last summer, they climbed, rode bikes, played every sport. They spun ghost stories by flashlight in tents, they made snowmen in July, they made a film, they explored the world around them. They built things: catapults, bridges, dioramas, Lego constructions, rockets, recycled art, and more. They sang, told jokes, danced, entertained each other with kid performances. They soaked up simple summer pleasures: popsicles, careening down the slip & slide, pick-up soccer games, lunch outside in the backyard with friends and counselors. They got a taste of an old-fashioned summer.
We have a great camp season in store for 2017 campers. Take a look. Summer begins here!
FORSYTH SUMMER DISCOVERY 2017
This summer, from June 12 – August 11, there are nearly four dozen camps, developed by the Forsyth School faculty, offered for children entering Pre-Kindergarten (age 3) - Grade 6. Kids love to stay for Pizza & Movie Night Thursdays. Fun Lunch Fridays are still part of every week’s camp.

New & Noteworthy. Of course, the high ropes course will be busy. Sleepover Camp will be great fun. Great art camps. Basketball, baseball and soccer! What’s new? Our vote for originality goes to Nothing but Nets. Think sports, fishing, cooking. Cooking? Hairnets! Really, is that original? How about Fairytale Artistry? Think Cinderella’s slipper made out of glass beads. Or Discover the Deep, equal parts imagination and science. For older kids, Spy Science is perfect for kids who want to delve into the science of espionage: cracking code, fingerprinting, and more. Re-useum is all about environmentally friendly art from recycled materials. For the think-big set, there’s Goin’ BALL-istic – games played with giant balls. So many great camps!
One-of-a-Kind Campus in a One-of-a-Kind Neighborhood. What’s unique about Forsyth School is that the backyards of our six houses form the playgrounds. So, it's an old-fashioned summer experience–hanging out in the backyard with friends. The Forsyth Adventure Center with a climbing wall and a one-of-a-kind high ropes course is a great resource for campers, and an integral part of the Summer Discovery program offerings. Our proximity to Forest Park extends summer possibilities for cycling, visiting all the resources the Park has to offer, and more.
