Grandparents and their grandchildren can share a college experience by attending G3 Camp: Grandparents, Grandkids, Grand Valley!

The Grand Valley State University summer camp is designed for children ages 8-12 and their grandparents. Participants will spend three days and two nights on Grand Valley’s Allendale Campus, sleeping in the living center apartments and eating in the common dining halls along with college students and others on campus.

Campers will attend hands-on learning activities in areas such as art, history, science, mathematics, engineering, technology and law enforcement among others. Class sessions will be taught by Grand Valley faculty and held during the day in the campus academic buildings. Evening activities will include swimming, volleyball, biking and the climbing wall and games.

The dates for G3 Camp are June 24-26; housing, meals, and sessions are all inclusive. Registration is open until April 30. Visit www.gvsu.edu/g3 and register by February 28 to get the early bird rate.

“Our goal is to offer educational experiences and activities that will strengthen the bond between generations and create many positive memories,” said Karen Meyers, director of Grand Valley’s Regional Math and Science Center.

G3 is sponsored by the Regional Math and Science Center and the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences. For more information contact Margo Dill at the Regional Math and Science Center at (616) 331-2267.
