Summer Programs

 

Sunny Hollow offers programming for Toddler, Casa, and Elementary children during the summer months.

Toddler Community

Our toddlers (ages 16-33 months) are enrolled all 12 months in our Toddler Community, so their summer is the same high-quality Montessori education as the school year and includes lots of outdoor time.

For the summer of 2020, we are reopening on July 6 after being offsite since March because of COVID-19.

For currently enrolled families, please email Sandy Wirth, Interim Head of School, to let her know if your child will be attending starting in July.

For prospective families, please contact admissions@sunnyhollow.org.

 

Casa (Preschool and Kindergarten)

Typically, Sunny Hollow offers a summer program  for children 3- to 6-years-old with at least one year of Montessori experience.  The program provides children with a consistent Montessori Casa experience where currently enrolled children can build on the progress and continue their friendships made during the school year.  Children will have the familiarity of a morning work cycle, recess, lunch, and an afternoon work cycle (or nap) and also have more time outdoors to enjoy the beautiful weather. Casa summer program is a great time spent with friends and time to enjoy the beautiful natural surroundings of Sunny Hollow.

For the summer of 2020, our Casa program will not reopen for the summer after being offsite since March because of COVID-19. Questions? Contact Sandy Wirth, Interim Head of School.

Children ages 3 to 6 can sign up for the traditional (English language) camps offered at Sunny Hollow by our partner, Language Sprout, that begin July 6. Register here.

Sunny Hollow Elementary Summer Camps

We are not able to offer our full variety of Elementary summer camps because of COVID-19 restrictions, but we do have these options available:

  • Shanna Brown’s STEAM (science, technology, engineering, arts, and math) camp July 20-24. Time: 8:30am – 3:30pm. Email Jessica@sunnyhollow.org to sign up.
  • Snapology will have virtual camps in June and early July. Click here for registration information. We continue to work with Snapology to see if they can offer onsite camps in July and August.

Age range: Entering 1sts graders to entering 7th graders

Classic Summer Camps for Ages 3 to 12

Our partners at Language Sprout will run (English-speaking!) traditional summer camps for students who are 3-years old through 12-years old at Sunny Hollow from July 6 through August 28 or September 4, depending on interest.

Summer is here and we can’t wait to play! Please join us for an exciting summer of adventure, friendship and more. We are excited to hold a traditional summer camp in English. With themed weeks, arts and crafts, song, impromptu dance sessions and lots of learning we will bring some joy to the summer weeks.
