The word summer triggers a sense of freedom in children, a chance to play and learn in a more relaxed and fun atmosphere. A Montessori Summer offers a variety of exciting and stimulating choices, encouraging children to discover new friendships and explore new experiences, while creating an environment that allows them to feel safe enough to be themselves and to follow their personal path of creativity and curiosity.
When BHMS closes its academic doors in June, those same doors quickly re-open to welcome campers to A Montessori Summer. This program offers a rich variety of activities including swimming instruction, athletics, visual and performing arts, and outdoor adventures. A Montessori Summer emphasizes nature and the environment, those things that the summer itself offers in abundance and full splendor. Each week provides the students with a trip day; typical outings might include a museum, the aquarium, the beach, the park, a wildlife preserve or the botanical gardens. Whether they are outdoors on the go, inside our cool and air-conditioned Montessori facility, or on the camp’s rooftop playground, campers are always under the experienced care and guidance of our counselor staff. A Montessori Summer is the perfect place for campers to enjoy and share new experiences; it provides unforgettable memories and solid friendships, which they carry with them throughout the school year.
A Montessori Summer is for children ages 3.5 -12 and is divided into two Divisions: Preschool and Elementary. Within the Divisions, campers are assigned to a group. Each group has a home base within our beautiful and spacious facility, a comfortable and welcoming place where campers begin each morning and end each afternoon.
