5 Reasons to Sign up for Apple Montessori Summer Camp This Year!
Warm weather and long summer days will be upon us before we know it. When the long-awaited season finally arrives, it will be time to send your little ones to Apple Montessori Summer Camp! Filled with excitement, our summer camp program is designed to offer children a safe, enriching, and fun way to spend their summer break.
If you’re new to Apple Montessori summer camps, here are 5 reasons you’ll want to reserve a spot for your child today:
1. Non-Stop Learning All Summer Long
Throughout the school year, children develop in many academic subjects such as reading and math. Unfortunately, if students stop practicing these skills over the summer, they can experience what’s known as the summer slide. To keep skills fresh, children should keep practicing during the summer months.
That’s exactly what happens at Apple Montessori Summer Camps! Guided by our Montessori-trained teachers, campers spend time each day focused on building academic skills. The best part? We keep learning fun, exciting, and engaging with a wide range of activities, experiments, and projects.
2. Fun Water Activities
Summer is synonymous with water play and children love getting wet! For this reason, all of our Apple Montessori Summer Camp locations include fun water activities. Many of our sites feature gorgeous swimming pools, while other sites feature splash pads or sprinklers so that campers can still cool off and enjoy some water sensory play.
At our locations with swimming pools, campers learn or build on their swimming skills during lessons taught by certified lifeguards. If you’re interested in off-site swimming lessons, we also offer this service at some locations.
3. Flexible Scheduling
At Apple Montessori Schools, we know that many families plan vacations and other fun activities over the summer break. That’s why we offer flexible scheduling options for our campers. You can sign up for the full 8 week program, or opt for a total of 3 to 7 weeks of enrollment. Choose the weeks that work for you, whether consecutive or not.
Our summer camp program is also open for a part-time or full-time schedule at most locations. Before and after-care services are also available. Do you have a question about our schedules? Get in touch to let us know how we can help make summer camp work for you!
4. A Variety of Engaging Activities
We offer themed weeks and plan exciting, engaging daily activities for campers to enjoy. Some of our most popular programs include:
- Crafts: From making tote bags and sun visors to creative expression through painting and coloring, our crafts are always a hit.
- Coding and Technology: Kids love learning through technology. Our campers learn the basics of coding and can also participate in our FasTracks program. This digital program builds critical thinking, creativity, collaboration, communication, and more!
- Cooking: We turn our campers into young chefs who create delicious smoothies, salads, trail mixes, and other healthy snacks.
- All-Star Action: Sports, obstacle courses, races, and other active events are a regular part of our camp program.
- Field Trips: We include outings to local attractions or in-house events each week. All trips and events are subject to the latest health and safety guidelines.
- Celebrity Kids: Our campers participate in performance art activities such as dance, music, talent shows, acting, and more!
- Innovators and Explorers: Does your child love doing experiments? Then they’ll love our innovators and explorers program, which focuses on STEAM activities like making slime, launching rockets, experimenting with robotics, and more!
5. Exercise and Friendship
Exercise and social interaction are important for any child’s well-being. At Apple Montessori Summer Camps, we foster a caring, companionable environment in which children can grow friendships. Plus, children enjoy plenty of time in free play during which they can interact with others while also getting lots of exercise. Our age-appropriate playgrounds provide the perfect backdrop for movement, exercise, imaginary play, and fun with friends.
Apple Montessori Summer Camp is the perfect place for your child to spend their summer vacation. Enriching, fun, engaging, and sure to keep them on track for the fall, our summer camps are always a hit.
You don’t have to take our word for it, see what former summer campers have to say:
