Summer Program

Sign Up for Summer Camp

For over thirty years, Country Meadows Montessori School has offered the Lake County community summer camp opportunities for children ages 3-12+.

Summer Camp runs for 10 weeks from June 5th through August 11th. There are two program options, the 10-week program, and two 5-week programs. Our summer camp is available at two levels: Primary ages 3-6, and Elementary ages 6-12.

All children are welcomed and campers do not need to have attended a Montessori program previously.

Activities at Summer Camp

At Country Meadows we know that when children participate and experience something first-hand their learning comes alive. Summer camp is a perfect way for children to discover and explore the outdoor world.

At the primary level, children will be introduced to the cultural exploration of the natural world. Primary campers experiencing the metamorphosis of a butterfly and study of fossils, insects and worms. They plant, garden, make rubbings of leaves, watch birds and learn the secrets of animal tracking. It’s an exciting program that makes learning an adventure which taps into a child’s natural creativity.
