World Kindness Day


Kindness is one of the character traits we focus on developing in our campers, and we want to provide resources and ideas of how campers can practice kindness year-round. Although being kind should be a priority for all of us every day, we have an opportunity to all be intentionally kind coming up on World Kindness Day (November 13).

We hope campers will participate by practicing kindness. Let us know if you participate, and share your kindness ideas and pictures with us! Need some kindness ideas? Check out this great list!

Camper Wins Free Week

IMG_2632It was a lucky day for the Bernstein family when 8 year camper Paige Warmington picked Sammy Bernstein’s name in our drawing for a free week at GAC for the summer of 2016. All campers whose parents sent in their Parent Evaluations were entered in the drawing. Names were printed, cut into strips, and placed in a large bag. We held the drawing last weekend at the Harbor Heritage Run in Newport Beach.  Sammy is a 6 year camper from Manhattan Beach. His response to winning was “Thanks for the free AS-C22-2879week at GAC! Next summer will be my 6th year, and my little sister will be going for the first time. We can’t wait!”.

Congratulations Sammy, we look forward to seeing you and Natalie this summer!

Remember to complete your Parent Evaluation next summer, so that you’ll be entered in next year’s drawing!


Welcome Baby Luke

ChilalaCongratulations to former GAC staff Tom “Chilli” and Kristie “Lala” Smith on the birth of their first child, Luke Gregory Smith on October 11 at 12:43 pm. He weighed a healthy 8 lbs, 2 oz and measured 20.5 inches. Chilli and Lala are so excited about the newest member of their family and have already been discussing when his first trip to camp will be.  Jen “Neon” Bon is a proud aunt and has already nicknamed him Pumpkin Head, however they don’t think that will be his future camp nickname, and are open to suggestions.
