Our summer camps are open to current, prior, or incoming IMS families as well as to families outside IMS with children from 2 years 10 months to 5 years old. Our teachers are preparing weeks of great fun and exploration in a safe, engaging environment. Find the themes that suit your little one and join us!
Because young children feel secure with routines, the structure of our day will be very familiar to the one we enjoy during the school year. You can expect snack in the morning to fuel your child’s fun, 45 minutes of free play on our wooded playgrounds, lunch from home, and nap time for the younger children followed by more activities in the afternoon. For our newest members of the IMS community, camp is a great introduction to the routines of the school year.
