Summer Camp 2024 Is Enrolling Now!

The Summer Camp at Hudson Montessori School offers summer fun to a wide range of ages—toddlers to elementary-age students. The camp is tailored by age group and has weekly themes, from ocean discovery to the earth's elements. Each level enjoys water play, with elementary-age campers swimming daily and young students enjoying the water sprinklers. As an added benefit, our camp immerses each student in the wonders of the Montessori learning style.


Half-day, full-day, and extended-day options are available for toddler and primary campers. Elementary campers have a full day of activities. Here are the highlights from each age level:


Toddler and Bridge Camp (2s and young 3s)

Our Toddler & Bridge camp (age 2 and young 3s) will spend the summer delving into three unique topics: Under the Sea, my Amazing Body, and Zoom, Zoom, Away We Go! These fun-filled camp themes show children how important parts of our world work. They will leave camp with a better understanding of the ocean, transportation, and how their bodies work to propel us through the world. 


Teachers will engage children with hands-on activities that are twofold—they involve hands-on fun while building their math, language, sensory, and practical life skills. Toddlers spend time outside daily playing games, learning sports activities, gardening, water sprinkler time, and much more!


Primary Camp (3s to rising kindergarteners)

Primary campers (age 3 to rising kindergarteners) will spend the summer exploring the world of amazing creatures, focusing on three animal groups in particular. The first session focuses on dinosaurs and their habitats. Sharks rule the second session. The last camp session takes children on a journey exploring the world of birds. 


Using science, art, sensory play, stories, and movement, campers will discover more about animal life cycles, habitats, and the unique characteristics of each animal group. Each session includes crafts, games, walking trips to Van Vorst Playground, and water sprinkler fun.


Elementary Camp (rising 1st through 5th graders) 

The Elementary Maker's camp (rising 1st through 5th graders) focuses on this year's Summer Olympics. Each week, campers will study the intersection of physics and Olympic athletes. Also, weather permitting, every morning, our students go swimming. 

  • The first session explains forces and motion. Students will understand why soccer players need cleats, why basketballs bounce, and more. 

  • The second session delves into matter, light, and sound. When the Olympic torch emits light, how does that light travel? How do the colors of uniforms worn by athletes affect their performance? How does sound travel throughout a stadium?

  • The last session will show students the importance of energy. From how athletes train and learn to conserve energy to how we can create an Olympic stadium using clean energy. Campers will see how energy powers every facet of our world. 

Throughout each session, we will engage and expand each camper's critical thinking skills through hands-on projects, group lessons, and field trips to places like the Liberty Science Center, the Newark Museum, Flat Rock Brook Nature Center, and more.
