Hello Summer!

We are excited to be offering summer camps at the Gordon School this year! Gordon School camps are open to the public and take place on their beautiful campus at 45 Maxwell Ave, East Providence, RI, about 10 minutes from Barrington. Our camps all run in the morning Monday-Friday for rising 2nd-4th graders, but many other great camps are offered in the afternoon, and lunch is available.
