Montessori Summer Camp
Apr 01, 2019 01:09AM
The New School of Lancaster will host six weeks of camp beginning June 10 through July 26. Half-day camp will be held from 8:30 to 11:30 a.m.; full-day camp will last until 2:50 p.m. Children will explore the world around them, experience the joy of self-discovery and enjoy a variety of age-appropriate activities geared for their individual needs and interests.
Child-centered summer camp is playful, relaxed and fun. It is an ideal change of pace for the summer months. The best elements of the Montessori philosophy––love of learning, free choice, independence, mutual respect and hands-on learning––are combined with the charms that summer affords: plenty of sprinkler and water fun; outdoor games; organized sports; nature walks; gardening; fantasy play; arts and crafts; cooking; sewing; science experiments; and picnic lunches with friends. Children will make friendships through play, improve motor, language and socialization skills, and continue their personal path of growth.
Cost varies. Extended care options available. No camp will be held from July 1–5. Location: 935 Columbia Ave., Lancaster. For more information or to register, visit NewSchool.net/2019-summer-camp/.
