Over the course of a camp season, Grier Summer often has a proportion of our campers who are non English speaking and come from around the world to enjoy the experiences of a recreational American camp program. The cultural, social, and linguistic immersion experience of camp helps girls to improve their conversational English without even realizing it. Our summer community is well balanced with American campers and staff, living, playing, and creating alongside campers and staff typically from European, Asian, and South American countries. Although English is the language of Grier Summer, we typically have Spanish, French, and Mandarin speaking staff members available to assist with overcoming language barriers if they arise.
In order to ensure that international campers are adequately covered for medical issues should any arise while at camp, it is mandatory for them to be covered by a local, US-based health plan. Grier Summer will make arrangements for the coverage and will provide families with the enrollment paperwork in advance so that coverage is secured before the camper arrives. International campers will be billed for health insurance.
