2017 EMS Summer Program
Ellington Montessori School is pleased to offer a summer camp program that will present a wide variety of fun and exciting activities within a warm and caring environment. The 2017 program will run for 8 weeks, beginning July 4th and ending on August 25th. Campers will explore a new theme every other week. Each ‘theme’ will inspire that week’s lessons, indoor and outdoor play activities, arts & crafts, physical education and excursions. The EMS Summer Program is open to all children from 15 months to 9 years of age.
Program themes, fees and a link to the registration form can be found below. If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact us.
