Bryant Woods Montessori Children’s House Cyber Summer Camp is a stimulating and engaging experience for children. The program is designed within a Montessori framework, and delivered by BWMCH Executive Director and Teachers. Extensions and modifications are included to ensure a developmentally appropriate option is available for each child. At-home projects provided with course materials offer opportunities for enrichment and family involvement.
- Camp sessions will meet Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday at 10:00am and last approximately 30 – 40 minutes each.
- Thursday will be a free choice day during which students can complete unfinished items, explore at-home projects, design their own projects or simply relax.
- ALL MATERIALS WILL BE PROVIDED! Supply kits of materials needed for all activities will be pre-assembled each week. Supply kit pickup will take place on Sunday of each week at BWMCH from 3:00-4:30pm. Alternate pick-up times can be arranged with the Executive Director.
- “Help me to do it myself.” This quote from Dr. Maria Montessori embodies the philosophy of Cyber Summer Camp. The activities and projects will be designed for the child to complete independently. However, we strongly encourage an adult or older sibling to join each session and help the child if they request assistance.
