Summer Camp 2023

| Cathy Bachman | ,

June 12 – August 4, 2023

This summer’s eight-week camp will focus on the arts, movement, gardening and cooking. We are both fortunate and grateful to have the energy and creativity of Candace Wiseman returning as our Summer Camp Director. We are so excited to offer this engaging and creative curriculum that will include many exciting field trips and activities. 

Transitioning and rising students will be charged tuition using their 2022-2023 school year’s program tuition amount. We are not offering partial or prorated tuition amounts, but we are allowing new students enrolled in the 2023-2024 academic year to start this summer during camp. 

Summer Camp Tuition is listed below by program.  Your Summer Camp spots are guaranteed until February 28th when we will open enrollment to new students. Payments will be charged to families in May and/or June of 2023 depending on your enrolled payment plan. Camp enrollment will continue until all available spaces are filled. If you have any questions regarding summer camp, please contact summercamp@mcsslc.com.

You may Enroll in Summer Camp by going to Webforms in FACTS.

Summer Camp Description

The Montessori Community School’s Summer Camp is a multi-week program that focuses on a different area of the world.  Each summer, in order to provide our students with a new “adventure,” the typical Montessori materials are exchanged for crafts, art projects, and various other activities. Our philosophy remains the same: an emphasis on conflict resolution, supporting the development of independence, and making the process of learning fun.

Our summer camp staff is usually made up of extended day, substitute and other support teachers who work with us year-round. Additionally, we may welcome a handful of new summer camp teachers who are trained by our MCS Administration and current staff.

Toddler students who are eligible for Early Childhood and showing readiness for that environment will be in a Transition classroom. Our Third Year Early Childhood students transition to Elementary at the beginning of the summer and they are very excited and ready to embark on all of the more advanced activities that are offered in the Summer Elementary class.

Please keep in mind that while transition is very exciting and our camp is a lot of fun, summer is a different routine.  We recommend families be prepared for all of the normal outcomes of change in routine. Our teachers and camp director make a great effort to keep parents informed and share photos of their child’s experience.  We encourage parents to join teachers in building healthy, communicative relationships in order to support our students so they can have a successful and enjoyable summer.
