Time flies when you’re having fun and at The Montessori School of Raleigh (MSR) that’s certainly true this summer as campers enjoyed exploring, discovering, and learning during SummerScape 2022. Educators know that it is important for children to take time off from their regular school-year studies to engage in different kinds of activities and learning experiences. SummerScape at MSR provides ample opportunities for children ages 15 months through grade 6 to do just that.
Offering a wide range of one-week programs to choose from, children can try something new or explore more deeply something in which they already have an interest—all while making new friends and having fun.
This year, SummerScape campers learned about other countries and cultures through the power of play with “Sports Around the World.” Other campers created wind chimes and whirligigs out of recycled materials. Camps featuring the works of Dr. Seuss and Eric Carle introduced campers to the world of writing and illustration and provided an opportunity for them to strengthen their reading skills and create their own stories and pictures. “CSI: Raleigh” had campers exercising their deductive and observation skills as they solved a crime staged on campus by school staff. Some campers learned how to be polite in “Manners and Social Skills” while others found their green thumbs during “Garden Camp.” For children who love to build things, several Gearshifter camps saw campers building fantasy characters and places, or recreating the world of pirates using LEGO® and Technic® elements. “Theatre Production” gave campers the chance to work on an upcoming school production of the Peter Pan story.
In short, there is something for everyone at SummerScape! As summer draws to a close and students look ahead to a new school year, planning for next summer’s camps will begin—and we can’t wait to see what’s coming!
