Summer Camp

Summer Camp

This year summer camps run June 26 through June 30, and July 10 through July 12, from 9am-12:15pm. The week in June will be fun activities, and experiments. I decided to have a three-day camp (in July) for academic review, to help children retain math and language skills, during the summer. Any past students or current students of Country Garden Montessori are welcome to attend. Any new student who is 3 years old, and enrolled for next fall, is also welcome. The cost of the five-day camp (June 26 – June 30) is $125 per child. The three-day camp (July 10 – July 12) is $75 per child. Each camp will be limited to 15 children.
