Our summer camps are English-based weekly sessions with engaging themes open to children from 2 years 10 months to rising 1st graders. 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!
In addition, we will be hosting 2 weeks of French and Spanish immersion camps offered by Immersion Island on our campus. There are half-day camps for the younger group of 3, 4, and 5 year olds as well as half-day options for rising K through 3rd graders. IMS will provide early drop off and extended day options for the Immersion Island camps as well.
Because young children feel secure with routines, our days are structured in a way to support your child’s enjoyment. Each day includes snack in the morning to fuel your child’s fun, a morning filled with group and individual activities related to our theme followed by 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. And each week ends with water play under sprinklers and in a spash pool on Fridays. For our newest members of the IMS community, camp is a great introduction to the routines of the school year.
