Our summer camp for primary students (ages 3–K) features an experienced English-speaking lead teacher plus a fluent speaker of either Spanish or Mandarin Chinese to assist. Camp instructors create a welcoming environment full of learning and fun. Each week, we focus on a different theme, exploring topics from bugs and insects to outer space and art around the world. Camp days are filled with games, singing and dancing, outdoor adventures, and other fun activities.
Montessori principles govern the classroom, and a Montessori-certified teacher supports and encourages emerging readers. Primary camp students likewise have access to Montessori materials as we integrate language, sensorial, geography, community, and math lessons into our daily work and play.
Weekly tuition for full-day camp is $330, $240 for half-day camp. Add-ons such as extended care and lunch are available for an additional cost.

More About Our Weekly Camp Themes
Children will have ample opportunities to be active this summer either in our outdoor playground or on the Gerstung equipment and Imagination Playground located in our gym.
We offer “water play day” every Friday, which includes time for the children to play with water toys outside and run in the sprinkler. On temperate days, the class will spend additional time outdoors such as by doing daily lessons, eating lunch and snack, gardening in the greenhouse, and taking neighborhood walks.
Children entering kindergarten may join the primary camp or may be eligible for some of our elementary camps. Full-day participation is strongly recommended (but half-day is also available), and extended care is also offered. Sign up for as many or as few camp weeks as you like.
Primary campers must be fully toilet-trained (wearing underwear) and dressed in clothing that promotes independence, such as bottoms with elastic waistbands and shoes with velcro fasteners.
