Are you looking for a fun way to extend the regular school year? Whether your family is new to Montessori or has been a part of the community for years, all are welcome. Summer program instructors embrace Montessori principles while providing an enriching experience that is unique, educational, and fun. Children continue to work within the school environment alongside trained teachers while exploring themes and activities that are exclusive to the summer program.

Summer Camps

Crystal Lake Montessori School offers week-long themed classes during the summer. We offer half day, full day and extended day options. Some of the weekly themes of previous years were studies in science, nature, authors, and writing as well as regular field trips to places in our area. Our spacious gym and beautiful outdoor environment provide physical activity and exploration no matter the weather. The Summer School Program is open to all ages.

An Emphasis on the Outdoors

Summer provides excellent opportunities to enjoy nature and a variety of outdoor activities. When children are not working in the classrooms, and often as a compliment to their work, the outdoor environment will be utilized extensively. Children will explore, play, and learn while enjoying the various spaces available on our campus. Outdoor activities include walking, gardening, and observation of wildlife. Your growing child will have many opportunities to run, jump, swing, and spin through organized games and independent play time.


Safety is our Priority

Summer program teachers are well equipped to take excellent care of your child. Every instructor is trained in CPR and first aid, as well as school-wide protocol in case of an emergency.
