Online registration will begin Monday, April 12, 2021 at 8 AM.

Gator Camp is a FREE 4-week summer in-person experience open to all rising 1st – 3rd graders at Greenwood from July 12 to August 5, 8 AM to 2 PM, Monday thru Thursday.  Due to the pandemic, learning gaps have widened and overall student engagement has decreased, particularly with our youngest students. Therefore, Gator Camp will aim to re-engage young learners to the in-person educational environment. Students will be connected with master teachers providing a robust focus on connection, literacy, and social and emotional development. 

Gator Camp is a pilot to a new vision to “summer school” for Henrico County Public Schools. We will have daily excursion, sports and movement, social and emotional learning and so much more!
