What makes a summer camp "Montessori"?
This summer camp has been designed with the Montessori approach to education in mind:
- Freedom of choice — Students can work on projects freely can move from activity to activity on their own terms
- A child-centered approach that encourages independent exploration — Children feel empowered by freedom of choice, and so pursue work that fascinates them. This helps the child develop concentration, willpower and independence
- Experiential learning — Children learn best by doing things for themselves, so the summer camp program offers lots of opportunities for children to work with their hands
- Faith that the child wants to learn — Montessori educators believe that children are happiest when they have the option to work on something meaningful, which is why summer camp places a strong emphasis on connecting themes to meaningful stories rooted in historic or cultural context
