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 will be offering five one-week camp sessions from June 28 to July 30. All sessions will 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. Each week ends with water play under sprinklers and in a splash pool on Fridays (weather permitting).
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.
Summer Camp Sessions
Week 1: June 28-July 2 “Grow Around the World”
Children will learn all about how gardens grow around the world. We’ll explore how different plants grow in different places, the many ways we use plants in our everyday lives, and where all of our favorite foods come from. We’ll even grow a garden of our own!
Week 2: July 5-9 “Crazy Creatures”
Children will discover the fastest, slowest, biggest, smallest, strongest, cutest, strangest animals on the planet. We’ll explore all the extremes of the animal world and learn how animals have different abilities to live in different environments.

Children will learn about great artists from around the world and make their own masterpieces inspired by famous works. We’ll have fun with painting, drawing, clay, collage, and more while exploring the many forms that art can take. Children will learn about famous artists as well as some lesser-known artists that have played an important part in history.
Week 4: July 19-23 “Future Inventors”
Discover famous inventions from around the world — and the fascinating people who created them. We’ll learn how inventors observe, problem-solve, experiment, and work together to come up with fantastic ideas. We’ll make our own inventions that will be fun, useful, silly, and delicious!
Week 5: July 26-30 “Wonderful Water”
Children will explore the many ways we use water and how it helps animals, plants, and humans stay healthy.
