More camp details...

Summer Camps will be offered in two distinct age-based groups

Incoming Kindergarten students and Incoming 1st-3rd grade students will be grouped in age-appropriate cohorts and gather in different classrooms

Incoming Kindergarten Students in Evergreen or Forest Classrooms

Incoming currently enrolled Kindergarten students will be the oldest cohort in an existing and established mixed-age preschool setting (perfect for rising Kindergartners who will transition to being amongst the youngest students in a learning setting!) with dedicated professional Preschool teachers.

The summer learning activities are based on our Montessori and Reggio Emilia-inspired approaches to child-directed, play-based learning experiences in a prepared and purposeful environment with skilled educators facilitating and guiding learning. During the summer months, much of our learning transitions to outdoor classrooms and learning environments, effectively inviting children into immersive learning experiences that support the development and academic preparation of the whole child in a joyful and playful way.

Incoming 1st-3rd grade students Summer Camp in River Classroom

  • Incoming 1st-3rd grade students will attend camp in our River Classroom, an elementary-age classroom licensed for up to 15 students with 1 primary teacher and several support teachers
  • Activities geared toward a mixed-age cohort of students based on maturity and development
  • Off-site, weekly full-day field trips by public bus celebrating local Lafayette and Boulder County community attractions (i.e. Lafayette Fire Station, Festival Plaza’s Splash Pad, WOW! Children’s Museum, Lafayette Public Library, The Collective Community Arts Center, local playgrounds, parks, Waneka Lake, Greenlee Wildlife Preserve, and much more!)
  • Off-site, weekly walking field trips to Waneka Lake and neighborhood nature walks
