Summer Camp

Let your child enjoy safe summer fun in a Montessori environment. Each week will have a different theme and activities planned through our summer camp session.

Campers will need to bring sunscreen, mosquito repellant, a bathing suit, a towel, swim diapers (if they are potty training), a change of clothes, and slippers for classroom use.

Current LRMS Early Childhood students are eligible to attend this summer camp. Rising First Graders must attend Summer Camp at the Forest Campus. New Early Childhood students who have enrolled for the 2022/2023 academic year may be eligible to attend this camp based on space availability.

Camp is closed on July 4 to observe Independence Day.

Summer Camp Themes

June 6-10: Wetlands

Wetlands are fascinating biomes, teeming with all sorts of interesting plants and animals. In particular, we will look at the life cycle and parts of the dragonfly. Did you know that people in Indonesia sometimes eat dragonflies as a snack?

June 13-17: Ocean

It’s Shark Week! Did you know that sharks do not have bones? Their skeletal systems are composed of cartilage, strengthened by calcium salts. 

June 20-24: Temperate Forest

Let’s learn about some of the plants and animals in our very own biome, the temperate forest. Did you know that the bobcat can jump up to twelve feet? 

June 27-July 1: Tropical Forest

It’s a jungle out there! This week we will learn all about the flora and fauna of tropical forests. Did you know that the indigenous peoples of Central and South America reportedly rubbed their arrow tips on the poison dart frog’s backs before hunting?

July 5-8: Arctic

Brrrrr! This week we will take a trip to the polar regions and learn about the animals that call it home. Did you know that the polar bear’s skin is actually black and its hairs are hollow? (Closed the 4th of July)

July 11-15: Desert

Did you know that Arizona is home to 13 different species of rattlesnake? It was a commonly held belief among some indigenous people that their rattles would pacify teething children. So, the rattles were placed in a bag and hung around the child’s neck.

Why Montessori?

Our summer camp structure will reinforce the Montessori methodology that students are exposed to during the school session. Our summer camps allow the students to learn through self-discovery and learning based on their interests. Each child can learn at their own rhythm in a way that allows them to feel as though they are not learning or being taught. We also encourage fun during the summer session to maintain a free, summery feeling while still leaving room for daily work that helps the children grow and learn.
