Weekly Themes

Every year, Team GCM Education staff specially curate 8 weekly themes (including Autism-Friendly Weeks) for Summer Camp Imagination, full of theme-specific educational programming, activities and crafts, and so much more! Each year is a combination of previous years’ camper-favorites and the occasional brand-new theme that you get to experience for the first time. 

Currently, Team GCM Education staff are tinkering and noodling away on the themes for 2022 which will be posted here later this year, in 2021. In the meantime, here is a peak at what Summer 2021 themes were:

Outside In
Pitch a tent and roll out your sleeping bags for this nature-themed camp! Learn all about the great outdoors as you engineer a tent, explore the constellations, and make s’mores in your own homemade solar oven.
Wild World
Explore animals, environments, music, and culture from around the world this summer! Campers will learn about different parts of the world and the animals and humans there. Your completed passport will have a stamp from every continent before you head home at the end of the week!
Time Travel
Brace yourself to travel through the time periods to experience the past, present, and future! Learn about dinosaurs during the Mesozoic Era, explore the Ice Ages, rule a kingdom during the Middle Ages, build a machine for the Industrial Revolution, and journey far into the future – all in one week
Magical Tales with Patel Conservatory @ Straz Center
Once upon a time, in a galaxy far away, and through the wardrobe, a magical tale awaited its heroes and heroines. Spend a week making potions, creating imaginative tales, and enjoying the magic of GCM!
*In partnership with Patel Conservatory @ Straz Center
Make a Masterpiece
Join us for a journey through art history! Replicate ancient art sculptures, dive into impressionist artworks, and use robots to make your own original art!
Maker Mania
Make, create, code, and more! Explore engineering, art, science, robotics, and all other things in this STEAM-focused week of camp.
Expedition Unknown
Discover what exists in the depths of the ocean, uncover the thick of the jungles, and venture out into the black holes of outer space in this adventure-themed week of camp!
Mad Science
Grab your lab coat and goggles and spend the week exploring and celebrating all things science! Launch rockets, build egg drops, code robots, learn about the science of cooking, and more!
