CHULA VISTA, CALIFORNIA (September 25, 2012) Montessori American School proudly announces that its first summer camp program, launched this year, was a great success. For 23 years, this Chula Vista preschool has provided children with the opportunity to receive a Montessori education during the school year. However, parents of Montessori students always had to find alternate child care for children during the summer months. This year, Montessori American made the decision to open its doors for the month of July and invite children to attend the school’s very first summer camp program. The results were an overwhelming success!

“We realize that finding a quality summer camp program can be a huge challenge for parents,”said Edith Gruener, Principal, Montessori American School. “Our priority at Montessori American is to provide an educational and fun environment for children. We decided that the need for this in the summertime is just as great. Obviously, it was the right decision. The parents were thrilled, and we had a wonderful turnout! We received a great deal of positive feedback from both parents and children. The parents enjoyed peace of mind, knowing that their children were in a fun, safe, and educational environment, and the children had a blast!”

Montessori American’s summer camp series took place this summer, from July 2nd – July 31st on the school’s campus, located at 3604 Bonita Rd., Chula Vista, CA 91910. The camp provided a schedule of fun activities for children each day of the week, including things such as:

  • Cooking

  • Arts and crafts

  • Water play

  • Science projects

  • Sport and outdoor activities

  • Games and contests

  • Dancing

  • Spanish lessons

  • Story times

In addition, children were invited to participate in themed days, such as “Pajama Day”, “Wacky Day”, “Crazy Hair Day”, and “Backwards Day”. The camp’s unique activity schedule creatively combined fun and education, providing children the opportunity to continue progressing through the summer by keeping their minds and bodies active.

Because of the great demand and the success of this year’s camp, Montessori American plans to host another summer camp in 2013.
