2015 Summer Camp Brochure - Montessori Academy of Lancaster
The Montessori Academy of Lancaster invites your children to spend their summer Exploring Our World!
Summer Camp 2015 will be a summer to remember as your children have the opportunity to experience different facets of our world including science, nature,
the arts, sports, and beyond!
Our camp program is designed so that each week evolves with “exploring our world”, yet every week is individual enough to stand on its own. This system will
work as well for children who will be spending the summer with us as it will for the children who only join us for a week or so.
3 to 5 yrs. 9am – 12 pm
Session 1a: Music & Movement
Raise your voice as we sing and dance our way through
the week. We will make our own instruments to add to
the chaos…we mean FUN! Get ready to shake your hips
to the beat!
Session 2a: In the Garden
We will explore the Montessori fruit, vegetable, and herb
gardens and prepare delicious treats using fresh

About The Montessori Academy of Lancaster
The programs of the Montessori Academy of Lancaster are based on the
philosophies of Dr. Maria Montessori. Montessori children work independently
and in groups. Self-directed, non-competitive activities help children to develop a
strong self-image and confidence to face challenges and change with optimism.
These children are problem solvers who can make appropriate choices.
