Weekly topics that spark curiosity, exploration and fun

Students will discover and investigate a new topic every week. The strong academic component ensures that children will complete a week of summer camp and feel like they've learned something about the focus topic, but also feel rejuvenated because they won't be burdened with the everyday stresses of school life.

FAQs

  • What makes a summer camp "Montessori"?

    This summer camp has been designed with the Montessori approach to education in mind:

    • Freedom of choice — Students can move around freely and decide which projects they want to work on
    • A child-centered approach that encourages independent exploration — Children feel empowered by freedom of choice, and so pursue subjects that fascinate them. This helps the child develop concentration, willpower and independence
    • Experiential learning — Children learn best by doing things for themselves, so the summer camp program offers lots of opportunities for children to work with their hands
    • Faith that the child wants to learn — Montessori educators believe that children are happiest when they have the option to work on something meaningful, which is why summer camp places a strong emphasis on academic subjects and the development of life skills
