SIG @ Bryn Mawr

News and views from our third and final week

Dear Parents,


As our three weeks come to a close, we reflect on what an amazing summer it's been here at SIG Bryn Mawr. Students have enjoyed their classes immensely and are so excited about what they have learned over the last three weeks. We have also had a blast during our recreation time, on trips, and during our evening programs.

We look forward to greeting you when you pick up your children this Friday or Saturday. Please let us know if you have any questions regarding our final activities or check-out procedures.

Closing Ceremony is almost here!

Overview: The closing ceremony celebrates the SIG Summer! Students will share some of their work, receive certificates for successful completion of the program, and watch a video presentation of the wonderful memories made in the last three weeks. Students will be expected to sit with each other in the very front with their counselor groups. Family members are welcome to attend.

Always excitement in our evening programs

Our campers had a blast this week at Casino Night. We played all the classic casino games and got some awesome prizes!

This week was our Student Talent Show and our campers showcased their musical and dance talents. Thank you to all the campers who participated. Special shout out to the parents who came to the talent show to support our campers.

We also had an awesome time at the Decades Dance. Counselors taught the campers their favorite 90's dance moves and danced the night away.

having a blast at our weekend getaways

This past Saturday we went to Six Flags Great Adventure in Jackson, NJ. Everyone had a great day, from those who went on the most thrilling roller coasters to those who enjoyed the arcades and tamer rides. We also got really lucky with perfect weather!

SIG wishes a happy birthday to our camper who celebrated this week:
