Our School-Age Program

"The land is where our roots are. The children must be taught to feel and live in harmony with the Earth." -Dr. Maria Montessori

We offer a dynamic summer camp program for children ages 6-12. Our camp provides children with fun opportunities to explore, create, and enjoy the wonders of the season. Each weekly session provides a unique thematic program so children can experience a variety of topics in depth. Learning at Bright Horizons is a journey of discovery, investigation, experimentation, and collaboration.

Campers enjoy themed activities, special visitors, field trips, and so much more.

What Parents are Saying

Our greatest advocates are our families.

"Thank you so much for all that you do for the children, families and staff. Bright Horizons has been a second home for our three daughters, and our family, for nearly 10 years now! The teachers have contributed tremendously to our daughters' growth and development, and the feeling of leaving your children with people they adore is incredibly comforting."

Our Curriculum Components

“The environment must be rich in motives which lend interest to activity and invite the child to conduct his own experiences.”
-Dr. Maria Montessori

  • Sensorial Children learn skills very effectively through their senses. Specific activities are designed to capitalize on using the senses to learn.
  • Math Mathematical thought process and practice are woven into summer activities to help children explore math as it relates to multiple areas in fun and interesting ways.
  • Language All our explorations and activities encourage growth in oral language, written expression, reading, and grammar elements, weaving all the components into the summer themes.
  • Garden Lessons in the outdoors help children develop an understanding and appreciation for the complexity and interdependence of our living world. Children develop the skills of exploration, observation, experimentation, and conservation.
  • Culture Cultural exercises in our summer camp programs include special visitors, in-depth studies, and hands-on activities related to the world around us, including other countries and cultures, the natural world, different languages, and foods.

Learning at Home

Chinese Folding Paper Fans

You Will Need:

Sheets of paper, stapler or tape

Directions:

Introduce the word “origami” and explain what it is. With your child, fold a rectangular piece of paper accordion style, with the folds running parallel to the shorter sides of the paper. Each fold should be approximately ¼ to 1 inch, depending on the size of the paper. Then, tape or staple the folds all together at the bottom and fan out the top.

Tip:

Origami is a wonderful rainy day activity; having a flat surface to fold on makes it easier.
