summer program is also offered for enrolled primary and
elementary students their siblings, alumni, rising primary
students and children from other Montessori schools.
Each session revolves around a theme. Concepts are
explored through daily science experiments, art projects,
cooking and outdoor activities. An extensive variety of
activities will span the weeks of the program. The daily
routines and work time of the school year will continue and the
children will have the opportunity to receive lessons and
progress through the classroom materials.
summer program features a wide range of flexible scheduling
options to suit each family's unique needs, including:

This summer, our Primary world explorers will
enjoy exploring a different continent each week from the perspective of the
children who live there. We will discover the foods the children eat, the
clothes they wear and what they do each day. Incorporating math, science,
language and art concepts, we will explore the countries in each continent. The
schedule for our day will be the same as the school year with work time, outdoor
time, lunch and dismissal. The children will have the full range of Montessori
materials available within the classroom and may also choose to work with
activities in an outdoor area during the morning work cycle. Each Friday we
will prepare our lunch making foods that are eaten in the continent we are
exploring. Join us for one or all seven weeks! June 15-August 7.
There is no camp the week of June 29th.
Elementary students can participate in one or
all of the following sessions:
First Bytes with
Mr. Wray from June 22-26. Students will learn about the history
of computing and computer science from Napier's bones to vacuum tubes to
the modern microprocessor. From Babbage to Hopper to Jobs, we will
review evolving machines and the people behind them. Students will be
introduced to the building blocks of modern computers: the binary number
system, logic gates, and boolean logic. We will learn about computer
programming, "coding", and explore the basic concepts while learning
different "languages". Finally, we will apply all this knowledge by
programming within a game they already love, Minecraft!
Mathlympics with Mr. Isaac from July 13-17. We will be exploring math concepts ranging
from number patterns and estimation to geometry and the metric system.
Throughout the week students will focus on core concepts and
nomenclature leading up to a fun filled Mathlympic competition on
Matters with Mr. Isaac from July 20 - 24. We
will explore the scientific background of our everyday world. Join us
and learn about a variety of amazing scientists and engineers that have
given the world a range of mind-blowing and delicious creations.
Everything from elements to baking secrets, root beer brewing and wild
experimentations will be explored throughout this week long session.
From Garden Plot to Tabletop with Natasha from
July 27 - August 7. We will explore the process of farming and food production. By growing,
harvesting and cooking the food that we grow in our own school gardens
and drawing upon our language, math and science skills to research and
prepare basic recipes, we will be learning important agricultural and
culinary concepts. We
will spend each day from 9 until 12:30 in both our indoor and outdoor
classrooms using ingredients that we harvest from our WEMS vegetable
gardens to create fresh meals and snacks. Students will also have the
opportunity to learn how to cook items that they can recreate at home.
We will explore basic botany lessons such as the parts of the plant,
fruit, flower, and seed dissections. We will also learn about
measurement and how to properly measure liquids and solids in cooking.
Students will create their own recipe books as well as herb jars to take
home. Students will have the opportunity to visit a Farmerís Market and
a working farm to learn about the economics and strategies of food
production. Please send lunch with your child Monday through Thursday.
Students will prepare their own daily snack, and cook and share lunch
on Fridays. Join us for one or both weeks.
