SEEK 2SEEK is an opportunity for students to keep brains and bodies in shape while connecting with other students and teachers in a less traditional, summer camp atmosphere. 

In addition to Leland and Gray teaching staff, we have hired an impressive group of current students, recent graduates, and local professionals experienced in youth development.

Registration is essential, whether you are attending one week or all four.  We need to know you are coming and which are your top choices for activities!

We are committed to keeping SEEK as close to free as possible for everyone by writing grants and fundraising.  Please consider making a contribution to support our camp.

 

SEEK provides a bridge for students to transition both academically and socially from our smaller elementary schools to the Leland & Gray community.
