Summer

At McGehee, Summergate 2016 is all about girls! The perfect summer adventure for your daughter is closer than you think. New experiences, new projects, new friends, new fun!

All girls rising Kindergarten through 4th grade (and our Counselor-in-Training Program for rising 5th through 7th grade) from the New Orleans community are invited to attend!

Daily activities include wacky science, music, sports, coding, pottery, robotics, yoga, and much more. We’ll also have dress-up days, water play every Friday, and all the exciting fun you’ve come to expect from Summer Gate. Staffed and operated by McGehee teachers and counselors, your daughter is sure to have a blast. Sign up for one week or all nine!

Every Friday is Water Day, where campers eat snoballs, play water games, and dance like crazy! Summer Gate is all about summer fun.  Dress-Up Days throughout the week: crazy hair day, favorite color day, theme dress up, and more! Afternoon Enrichment Add-Ons are offered through Summer Gate partners and designed to customize and heighten your summer experience — enrichment classes from 1-3pm every Monday – Friday.
