Summer Fun and Learning: The Positive, Lifetime Impact of Summer Camp at Apple Montessori

June 19, 2020

Apple Montessori’s summer camp program is officially and safely opening July 6th! Our goal every summer is to offer the best of both worlds—fun and learning! And when you throw in making lifelong friends and lasting memories, our campers have the recipe for an exciting summer. Our well-rounded, engaging on-site summer camp program offers a fun and immersive way for each camper to retain and learn new skills while enjoying the summer holiday.

Summer learning has a proven, positive impact on both a child’s academic and social-emotional development. The benefits of summer camp are numerous, from teaching life lessons that foster independence and responsibility to the value of creative playtime and teamwork with new and old friends. Research shows that when students fill the summer learning gap with the camp experience, they are much more likely to stay ahead educationally and socially, keeping pace with their peers in the fall.

Summertime at Apple also keeps campers’ bodies active with outdoor sports, games, and nature activities! Not only do these activities promote fitness and movement, but they also encourage sportsmanship, coordination, fun with friends, and more!
