Summer Camp 2016 Photo Gallery

Photo Gallery June, 2016

          At Montessori Pathways Summer Camp, our goal is to provide campers with an opportunity to retain and develop their skills in a relaxed summer atmosphere.

          We will combine exciting adventures with creative opportunities for learning. While forming new friendships, children will have ample time for play, personal growth and free exploration. A portion of the day will be allotted for exploration of Montessori materials.

          Campers will experience a new theme every week! Each week will include creative art projects, cooking and baking activities, gardening, and active games.

          Children will have a lot of fun playing games and bathing in the sun and water in our beautiful, natural playground.

          Aside from field trips in the community, we plan to bring many interesting activities to the school as well.
