Our camp follows Montessori methods, allowing the children to select from a variety of activities throughout the morning. Summer camp teachers prepare weekly-themed group lessons and hands-on projects, to expose children to a variety of learning topics and sensorial explorations. We spend as much time outside as possible, with woods, water and nature play and also trek to the park and library each week. The schedule of a typical day appears below.
