The GEMS World Academy Chicago Campus will be closed starting Monday, March 16- Monday, May 04. We will be moving to an online learning platform during this time. Please contact the appropriate office via email with any questions.


Camp GEMS is the perfect way to keep minds and bodies active over the summer. We always use what we have learned each summer to improve our camp offering and operations.

Camp GEMS Summer 2020

A six-week summer program designed and led by GEMS faculty for students age 3 through 12. Programming closely aligned with the International Baccalaureate (IB) framework in place at our school during the academic year. Each week of the six-week day camp follows a theme from the IB.
