SUMMER CAMP

Aquinas & Old Town Montessori Summer Day Camp at Mount Vernon campus

We would like to invite your child to join us in a stimulating summer adventure. Our Montessori Summer Day Camp is about learning new skills, making new friends, having new experiences, and most importantly, it’s about plain, old fashioned fun! The Montessori Summer Day Camp program promotes learning as a joy, which is never outgrown. We think your child will be as enthusiastic about it as the children we currently have with us; hence our invitation.

A typical day for a 3 to 9 year old includes experience in a Montessori classroom, where the child manipulates a great variety of developmental materials. There are nature and art activities, stories, songs, and games. Our staff is composed of professionally trained teachers.

The Aquinas heated pool ranges in depth from two and a half to five feet. This non-threatening size offers beginning and novice swimmers an opportunity for great success in a safe environment. Even the youngest swimmers feel comfortable in the shallow end and make remarkable progress in just a few weeks.

Childhood is short — and so important in determining the course of a life. Do consider giving your child the opportunity to discover that learning is a joy!

My children loved being at Aquinas Summer Camp last summer. They loved being outside for most of the day playing among the shade trees and having the swimming pool right there. I honestly can't imagine a better place to spend the summer in the Alexandria area.
