We offer camps for one week during the week of the President’s Day holiday, two weeks during Spring Break (April), and for 5 weeks during the summer ( in June and July*). There is no camp during our two-week Winter Break
Currently enrolled and former students (up to rising first graders) are eligible to enroll in Mountain School camps. Priority is given to currently enrolled students.
* No camp during the 4th of July week
Fine motor skills and imaginations will be engaged, as each child helps to design and sew (with assistance!) his or her own pieces for dress-up play. The children will take their creations home at the end of the week.
MERRY MUSIC MAKING
We will begin each morning in song, while we explore the different sound qualities of a variety of objects. Throughout the week children will use everyday objects to craft their own musical instruments, to be taken home at the end of the week.
SPANISH LANGUAGE & CULTURE
We will learn songs, play games, and hear stories in Spanish. We will create a group art project (a pinata) leading to a festive Friday celebration!
NATURAL WOOL DYING & TOY MAKING
We will dye wool with natural organic foods and spices, like onions and turmeric soup spice; then we will make the dyed wool into toys to take home. Natural wool dying is wet splashy fun!
ADVENTURES IN NATURE
We will go for daily hikes, off campus, to move, and explore nature in the neighborhood.
BEAN BAG TURTLES
We will make bean bag turtles for puppet shows!
SEA TREASURE & FISHING FRIENDS
We will sing songs, hear stories about the sea, and make a fishing treasure game to bring home.
