G3 - Grandparents, Grandkids, Grand Valley!

Faculty Informational Page


What is G3?

G3 is an exciting opportunity for children ages 8-12 and their grandparents to live on campus, stay in a Living Center, learn new things (like art, history, and science), and laugh together on the beautiful GVSU Allendale campus.  Participants eat meals in the dining halls, engage in a variety of hands-on classes designed for all ages, enjoy evening activities, and spend quality time together all while creating memories to last a lifetime!

The fourth year of camp will be held June 23-25, 2015.  Registration will open in December 2014.


FAQ's for Presenters

Time commitment: We are asking presenters to plan one session and run that session. Faculty are not expected to stay for the entire camp. Each session is expected to run only once, but we are open to repeat sessions.

Session lengths: 90 minutes

Session content: We would like for presenters to share their expertise and passion for a subject with the participants. We are seeking hands on session from all disciplines, including athletics, the arts and core subjects. These sessions could be adapted for the children from classes which you already teach or a hobby that you enjoy.
