WHY GRID BOOK SUMMER CAMP?
When it comes to choosing a summer camp, we know you have options. We strive to be the best possible camp for all of our families by working towards our mission of providing memorable experiences in an inclusive community that fosters personal, social, and emotional growth. At Grid Book, campers have the chance to achieve their personal best while having the time of their lives and creating memories which last a lifetime. We have created a program that is unlike any other in the world!
Here’s a peek at what makes Grid Book Summer Camps the BEST ever:
Camp Friends Are Best Friends
The friends made at camp are likely to last a lifetime. The camp experience offers so many opportunities for growth that it is hard not to develop lasting friendships with the people those experiences are shared with.
New Knowledge Each Day
Our curriculum is designed to provide a variety of information in an order that helps you develop in a world-class way.
Intimate Class Sizes
IN-STUDIO Camps have been designed to provide a very personalized experience. Class sizes are limited to 10 members to provide a lot of individual time and Q&A Sessions.
The Grid Book Staff is best described as phenomenal. Mark Perrett and John Lluvera are outstanding educators who truly care about the individual experience of each camper. With over 15 years educating in the field of percussion and a track record of producing students who perform at the highest levels in the activity, your camper is in good hands.
The Grid Book Percussion Studio is a well-equipped facility which offers campers the opportunity to play in a large drumline. Our building offers a practice room dedicated to marching percussion with a lounge, bathroom, and refrigerator for students who bring their own meal. For campers over 18, there are a variety of food and beverage locations within walking distance of the studio.
At the end of the day your experience as a marching member is very little about the music, and much more about being a good person. At Grid Book we help students develop leadership qualities that will translate into everything else they do in life. We build great role models and the theme of leadership is something we spread through the entire camp.
