Summer Camp Curriculum

June 12 - August 25, 2023
Call for more details: 949-855-5630 

The summer program at Montessori on the Lake consists of fun, academic-based activities and excursions designed for students age 5 (who have completed kindergarten) though 13. All topics are focused on a connection to nature because as Maria Montessori asserted, "There must be provision for the child to have contact with nature, to understand and appreciate the order, the harmony and the beauty in nature... so that the child may better understand and participate in the marvelous things which civilization creates." Within each week there is an emphasis on a specific aspect of nature and each topic will also encompass aspects of art, art history, physical activity & education, language arts, and of course, science. In addition to these topics, children will also participate in a number of field trips, both connected to the topics below and also to recreational destinations.
