"Joy, feeling one's own value, being appreciated and loved by others, feeling useful and capable of production are all factors of enormous value for the human soul."
- Maria Montessori
A Montessori Summer will be closed for Summer 2020
We have made the difficult decision to cancel A Montessori Summer. Because of a number of factors, including our inability to offer swimming due to pool closures, the uncertainty of field trips, the ban on large gatherings at parks throughout the city, and the lack of clear guidance on health and safety protocols concerning summer programs, we felt this was the only possible decision. The health and safety of our children and staff is our highest priority. We know this is a disappointment. We will be processing refunds, including deposits, for all those families involved in camp and hope to see you next summer!
Summer Camp: A Montessori Summer
BHMS opens the doors in late June to welcome campers to A Montessori Summer. This rich program offers activities such as swimming instruction, athletics, visual and performing arts, cooking and outdoor adventures. Every Friday is Trip Day! Typical trip destinations include Riis Park Beach, wildlife preserves, the New York Aquarium, the Central Park Zoo, and the American Museum of Natural History.
Whether they are outdoors on the go, inside our cool and air-conditioned BHMS facility, or on the rooftop playground, campers are always under the experienced care and guidance of our staff of counselors. A Montessori Summer is the perfect place for campers to enjoy new experiences!
