Sooner than we realize, it will be here. Long, warm days full of sunshine and giggles, digging in the dirt, exploring the world, trying new things, getting messy and making friends. While we don’t practice our math facts, letter sounds, or use the Montessori materials during Summer Camp we do use what we have learned during the school year and spend as much time as we want studying gravity, the elements, new art materials, or foods we can grow. The kids get excited and give me all sorts of ideas of what they want to do. The themes we explore are starting points that take us into other areas of fun and discovery.
This summer our theme “THEN and NOW” will be explored through science, art, nature, and cooking. What was the planet like millions of years ago? How has it changed? Before there was electricity, what did kids do to have fun? How can we make energy that is cleaner and safer for the Earth? How did people cook their food 100 years ago? What will people be eating 100 years from now? What inventions helped us to travel farther than we could 200 years ago? How did people stay cool before air conditioning? Oh the possibilities!
Summer Camp for 2016, begins June 6th and ends June 17th. Campers can join us for both weeks or choose the week they wish to attend. Snacks will be provided. In fact, we will be cooking/preparing snack each day and the choices will be inspired by our studies of THEN and NOW. This camp is open to any student (not just those that are currently attending or plan to attend LifeSong Montessori in the fall) so bring your friends, neighbors, siblings and cousins! Space is limited, so reserve your spot soon.
