Summer at DMS promises plenty of fun, making full use of our outdoor environment. Our summer program begins with a deep respect for each child as an individual. We will continue to educate our campers by inspiring an interest in learning through the exploration of weekly themed lessons using our school’s Montessori approach.
DMS Camp Sunshine will provide your child with plenty of fresh air activities; gardening, sprinkler fun, nature walks, story time yoga, outdoor art, and full use of our playground at drop off and pick up. We will focus on providing direct spontaneous contact with nature, and continue the growth and development of the whole child. Additionally, our summer camp program will help build and maintain an affinity towards nature that begets curiosity and play in the natural world.
DMS summer camp also provides a daily rest period. Those entering K & 1st grade excluded, and will participate in a quiet restful afternoon session.
