After careful consideration, The Grosse Pointe Academy has made the decision to cancel all summer camp programs, with the exception of our College of Creative Studies (CCS) sessions. The safety of our students and community is of utmost importance, and we will continue to make decisions based on this factor. CLICK HERE to sign up now.
Camp space is limited and deposits and balances are non-refundable, except in the event that The Grosse Pointe Academy cancels a camp session, in which case a full refund will be issued.
