PRIMARY CAMP

In The Discovery School's Primary Summer Camp students spend their morning and afternoon work periods developing their cognitive, language and math skills in a Montessori classroom under the guidance of our experienced teachers. In this established Montessori classroom for 3-6 year olds, there are no timetables to regiment activities or a fixed syllabus to obstruct the expansion of the mind.

Students will also have the opportunity for gardening, art exploration and outdoor play.
