elementary (THEMED; 4 weeks only; 1st–6th grade)
Many Rivers’ 2018 Elementary Summer Day Camp is a FOUR-week celebration of art, science and nature for children who have completed Kindergarten through Fifth grade. Each week follows a different theme rooted in art, science or nature. Each day provides children the opportunity to explore, learn new skills, and have fun. The Montessori values of peace, meaningful learning and positive community help campers develop a strong self-image, sense of self-esteem and a feeling of belonging.
Open to all students, regardless of Montessori background. The priority deadline for current and entering MRM families is March 11. Non-MRM families may submit registrations prior to March 11, with those registrations processed after the March 11 current family deadline. After March 11, registrations are processed on a rolling, first-come, first-served basis.
Please scroll below for themes and further information.
primary (9 weeks; ages 3–6; NOT THEMED)
The Primary Summer Camp is a unique Many Rivers program that provides children with art and nature-themed experiences based on Montessori principles. Choice, freedom and responsibility within a caring community characterize the summer program just as during the school year, but with art, science and nature works taking the place of most of the traditional Montessori works. There will also be ample outdoor time to take advantage of summer-only possibilities.
Camp will run five days a week from June 18 through August 17 with no camp held on July 4. The camp day will run from 8:30 through 3:30 with morning care available from 7:30–8:30 and aftercare from 3:30–5:30. Enrollment is limited to a maximum of 20 students, and is only open to enrolled Many Rivers students. Priority in enrollment will be given to campers who register by March 11 for the full nine weeks.
- Priority enrollment will be given to campers who register for the full nine weeks.
- The deadline to receive priority enrollment for 9-week enrollment is March 11. Other parents may submit registration for partial summer enrollment prior to March 11; these registrations will be processed after the March 11 deadline for 9-week enrollment.
- Please pay attention to the new Payment Policy on the Registration form.
Toddler (16 months–3 years old)
Just as with the school year program, the goal of Many Rivers Montessori’s Toddler Summer Program is to provide a home-like, loving environment, where children’s abilities and needs are respected and met. With a format similar to the school year program, the Toddler summer program is taught by a teacher-qualified assistant rather than an AMI-trained guide. After the two-hour morning cycle, the children may play outside in the beautiful outdoor environment created especially for them. They have a lunch which encompasses family rituals. After lunch, toddlers are given the opportunity to nap or rest. The afternoon portion of the day also provides ample opportunities for outside play and care of the outdoor environment.
MRM's Toddler summer program meets June 18 through August 17, Monday–Friday (except for July 4) from 8:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Before- and aftercare is also available. Toddlers must enroll for the full nine-week summer program on a full-time basis. We anticipate a small enrollment of three to four toddlers.
