IMS Summer Camps 2022
NOTE: Primary summer camp registration is now CLOSED. Our toddler camps are still open to families currently enrolled in the IMS toddler program. Thank you!
Our summer camps are English-based weekly sessions with engaging themes open to children from 2 years 10 months to 5 years old. Our camp staff are preparing weeks of great fun and exploration in a safe, engaging environment. Find the themes that suit your little one and join us!
We offer multi-week camp sessions from mid-June to late July. All sessions run Monday through Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 3:00 p.m., with half-day, extended-day, and early drop-off options available.
Because young children feel secure with routines, our days are structured in a way that supports your child’s enjoyment. Each day includes snack time in the morning to fuel your child’s fun (with snacks brought from home), a morning filled with group and individual activities related to our theme as well as 45 minutes of free play on our wooded playgrounds, lunch brought from home, and nap time for the younger children followed by more activities in the afternoon.
Our summer camp is open to all children aged 2 years 10 months to 5 years who are toileting independently, regardless of whether they are currently enrolled as students at IMS. For our newest members of the IMS community, camp is a great introduction to the routines of the school year.
COVID-19 safety precautions will continue to be followed as they have been throughout the school year. Please see our IMS Summer Camp Info Sheet for more information.
2022 Summer Camp Sessions
Week 1: June 20–24 “Prehistoric Creatures” (FULL)
Travel back in time to learn about dinosaurs, wooly mammoths, saber-toothed tigers, and other fascinating creatures from the past! We will learn about these amazing animals and the time periods they lived in, and discover how scientists have found clues to how these creatures once lived.

Campers will learn about how we can help the earth by recycling, reusing, and reducing how much we use.

Week 5: July 18–22 “Folklore and Fairytales” (FULL)
Dragons and mermaids and monsters, oh my! We will learn all about magical tales from around the world, and create some stories of our own. Using art, music, movement, and games, we’ll explore the fantastical worlds created by storytellers from many cultures.
