Love of learning takes place all summer long for three to six year olds at Bala House Montessori’s summer camp!
Similar to the school year, Montessori fundamentals – free choice, independence, and respect for self, others, and the environment – are emphasized during camp. However, sprinkler fun, arts and crafts, splashing in wading pools, nature walks, digging in the garden, and leisurely outdoor picnic lunches with special friends make this program a truly different experience from the school year and an ideal change of pace for the summer months.
Our summer camp is open to everyone. Whether your child is new to Montessori or a veteran, this camp is a great way for them to discover, learn and grow in a safe, fun, nurturing environment. Our preschool camp is a wonderful way for a child to experience a taste of a Montessori education over the summer, to transition a new student entering our program in the fall, or to introduce a young child to their first camp experience.
Become part of the Bala House Montessori community this summer and have your child experience summer‘s simple pleasures.
