Montessori Themed Camp for ages 3-4
Weeks 1-4 SWIM LESSONS
Bay is fortunate to have a swimming pool on campus! Staffed with a certified lifeguard, campers will receive swim lessons, gain confidence in the pool, and learn skills they can use throughout the summer. When the children are not swimming, they will explore our campus and participate in organized activities.

Campers will gain an appreciation for music as they explore fun songs with coordinated movement and play a variety of instruments. They will learn about the importance of rhythm as they participate in a drum circle led by Ms. Sheila from SoMarDrummers!
Week 6 ARTS & CRAFTS
Let’s get messy and colorful! Campers will have a chance to work with a variety of art materials to create crafts as they develop those fine motor skills. They will cut, glue, sculpt and learn about color mixing using different tools and paint on a variety of mediums. This camp will include a special craft with a local art teacher from Just Paint Now, Ms. Jamie.
Week 7 STEM
Campers will gain an understanding of scientific and physical laws through experimentation and exploration! Bay’s STEM teacher, Ms. Allison, will lead campers as they learn the basics of building strong structures and explore various physical science experiments in the classroom as well as outdoors.
