Summer Camps 2021

Summer Application 2021
Last Updated: 4/8/2021 6:53 PM

We believe that summers should be spent in the country, joyfully learning creative expression through dynamic adventures from around the world.


“A man practices the art of adventure when he breaks the chain of routine and renews his life through reading new books, traveling to new places, making new friends, taking up new hobbies and adopting new viewpoints.”

Wilfred Peterson

Toddlers (ages 18 months to 3 years)

  •  If you’ve ever wondered if your youngster is ready for “preschool,” we invite you to come and observe our toddler teachers at work. Our staff of professional educators strives to create a warm and loving, home-like experience in their carefully prepared, child-centered environments. Each cozy setting allows your child numerous opportunities for positive social interaction and development in the areas of language, order, movement and independence. Two and three-year-olds need a nurturing and secure atmosphere in which to experiment and express themselves so our programs provide a joyful and supportive and loving atmosphere in which they can thrive! The program is offered in five week blocks. The relaxed, lazy, hazy days of summer are a perfect time to introduce your toddler to this wonderful new experience. We invite you to call our office to schedule a tour.


  • Summer Toddler Programs (ages 18 months to 3 1/2) are two 5-week sessions only.

Children will be rostered into permanent class pods for one or two five week sessions, only. We will not be offering drop in enrollment as in the past to minimize exposure to staff and students through the summer. Themes and activities around art, drama, music, sports, social studies and science will be lively and engaging but we will not announce them until a week before each one launches. 

Please check one or both sessions of your choice and then circle one of the time slots to the right of each session and return your application with a current immunization record.
