Summer Programs

Christopher Academy offers two summer programs

Summer Camp

The 2021 Summer Camp runs from June 28 through August 6.  Children ages three through seven years may enroll for two to six weeks in either a half or all-day camp session. The Summer Camp runs five days per week, Monday-Friday.

 Our Summer Camp emphasizes motor development, arts and crafts, music, cooking, science, and water activities. Each child is placed in a small group of children with similar ages and abilities. As enrollment changes from week to week so may these groups.  Each week has a unique theme around which activities are centered. 


Our air-conditioned classrooms provide a balance to our expansive outdoor environment.  Our camp is appropriately designed for the three to seven-year-old child.


The camp staff is comprised of members of our faculty, as well as well-trained and mature summer counselors, who often return summer after summer to be a part of our program. Their experience and commitment to the program are exhibited in the high level of personal interaction our children receive in keeping with Montessori philosophy to learn and grow in a peaceful, supportive environment. 

**An updated registration form will be available in the next few weeks.**

Summer Montessori Program

Christopher Academy’s Summer Montessori Program will be offered from June 28 through August 5.

The Summer Montessori Program is designed to serve children ages 2 ½ through 4. This program is ideal for first-time campers or children new to Montessori. Session times are from 9:15 AM until 12:00 PM and are available for two or four days a week. Children may enroll for as little as two weeks or as long as the full six-week session. We highly suggest for the benefit of the child to enroll for weeks that run consecutively.

Offered in one of our beautifully appointed air-conditioned Montessori classrooms, this program mirrors the simple structure of a typical Montessori school day. Children are presented with initial lessons in Practical Life, Sensorial, Math and Language while also exploring their creativity through arts and crafts, music, storytelling and outdoor play. By maintaining a small group size and limiting the program to mornings only, the Summer Montessori Program gives children the opportunity to become comfortable with classroom routines, build independence, secure new friendships and learn initial Montessori lessons.

The program sessions are as follows:

  • 2 Days Monday/Wednesday or Tuesday/Thursday

  • 4 Days Monday through Thursday
