Summer Camp (2.9 – 6 years)
Bala House’s preschool Montessori summer camp runs for 8 weeks, from June 12, 2023 – August 4, 2023.
*Camp registration is offered to current families first and then typically opens to new families on February 1st. At this time, all camp spaces for Summer 2023 have been taken by current families and we will not be able to open this summer’s camp to the public.*
Summer is a great time for children to explore the world around them, experience the joy of self-discovery and enjoy a variety of age-appropriate activities geared for their individual needs and interests. As a Bala House Montessori camper, your child will get all of this and more.
Our child-centered Montessori summer camp is playful, relaxed, and fun. It is an ideal change of pace for the summer months for our 2.9 – 6 years old campers. We combine the best of Montessori – love of learning, free choice, independence, mutual respect, and hands on learning– with the charms only summer can afford – plenty of sprinkler and water fun, outdoor games, organized sports, nature walks, gardening, fantasy play, arts and crafts, cooking, sewing, science experiments, and picnic lunches. Your child will make friendships through play, improve motor, language, and socialization skills, and continue their personal path of growth.
Our Lower Merion summer camp is open to everyone – all families, friends, and neighbors of Bala House. If you desire a great way to transition your child entering our program in the fall, a first time camp experience, a camp staffed with our experienced and nurturing Bala House teachers, consistency and convenience for your family, or the option to choose individual weeks as needed, look no further than Bala House. We can’t wait for your child to enjoy this fun-filled time of year with us!

“My kid loves the staff and the school, and all the activities were fun and meaningful. It was a joyful experience for him. He misses the school and can’t wait to start the fall semester in September.” – Bala House Parent
“I love that my daughter was able to have new types of experiences in a familiar setting (she attends Bala House during the school year). She enjoyed going to camp each day, and always had interesting things to share with me when I picked her up.” – Bala House Parent
I liked the variety of different activities from sports to arts. I also really liked that the “Montessori” way of doing things was carried throughout the program. – Bala House Parent
Very loving and nurturing environment that allowed self-expression without the rigidity of a traditional school system. – Bala House Parent
