Summer Day Camp
The Happy Montessori School Summer Day Camp at the Sands
Point Preserve is tailored for younger children, especially those who
are having their very first school experience. Our Day Camp is designed
as a non-competitive, nurturing environment with individualized attention
to each child's developing personality. We offer the warmth and flexibility
of home with the thematic structure, friendships, and adventures of camp,
all in a beautiful, wooded setting.
Our small group size gives us the ability to make adjustments
to suit the children's needs or interests, and the freedom to arrange
spontaneous, child-driven activities.
Our location at the historic Sands Point Preserve offers us many opportunities for learning and for fun. The Outdoor Learning Center is equipped with sensory materials like disks of tree bark, tables for collecting scientific specimens (rocks, pine cones, and more), and tools for making musical noise. We have access to all the beautiful trails, a freshwater pond, mature forest, and a large meadow. When the weather isn't cooperative, we play in air-conditioned rooms in a historic stone castle.
Our main staff are teachers with degrees in early childhood education, many of whom are teachers at the school during the academic year. We also employ an energetic, creative group of college students and teenagers as assistants who are directed by the experience of our seasoned teachers.
We offer transportation on air-conditioned buses. Our teachers are the drivers, providing additional continuity between home and camp, as well as a familiar face for the children.
The supportive environment of the Happy Montessori Summer Day Camp is a wonderful way for a child to spend a summer and transition to school, whether for the first time or as a returning student. Call for a tour, or get an application here.
