Summer Camp


Toddler Summer Camp


The program is geared toward children who will be enrolled in the RKMS Toddler Program in the fall.

5 days a week                          8:45am - 11:45am

The Ronald Knox Toddler Summer Camp is an introduction to the Montessori classroom for students entering the Toddler Program in the fall. The camp invites toddler students into the classroom setting, enabling them to ease into a drop-off routine and begin to explore for themselves. Young children will join the classroom to gain independence in a safe, welcoming environment, both inside the beautiful Montessori classroom as well as in the fun outdoor areas.

Transitional Summer Camp

This camp is for children 3 years of age by the first day of the program in June, who will be entering their first year of the RKMS Primary program.

5 days a week                          8:45am - 11:45am  ($310/week)

(lunch class included and a hot lunch is available for an additional fee)

The camp is designed to introduce children to the Primary classroom environment. This program will begin the process of bringing out a child's sense of order, concentration, coordination, and independence through emphasis on the Practical Life and Sensorial areas of the classroom. The children will be introduced to ground rules, guidelines and social expectations that will be an integral part of their experience in the Primary program. In addition, the children are allowed ample time to play outside. Outdoor time will feature different activities throughout the week. Mondays & Fridays are bicycle and scooter days, Tuesdays & Thursdays feature sprinklers and water slides, and Wednesdays are Nature days, with special excursions to explore beautiful Mallinckrodt Park, right next door.

2019 themes

There’s No Place Like Space weeks 1 & 2

How far away is a light year?

Is the sun a star?

Does Jupiter really have 60 moons?

Your children will get answers to these questions and more as they are introduced to the enigma that is outer space. In this two week session, children will begin to explore and make discoveries about our solar system, our galaxy The Milky Way, and other mysteries of our Universe.


Mad Science
weeks 3 & 4

Your children will become Junior Scientists as they
immerse themselves in all things science! They will delve into science activities, science projects and science games as they discover answers to scientific questions. They will learn that experimentation is not always exact, but it is fun and interesting to try predicting what will happen as a result.


It’s a Bug’s Life
weeks 5 & 6

Children in this two week session about entomology will encounter lots of bugs, but they won’t need insect repellent to keep these creepy crawlers away! The world of bugs is a fascinating one; young bug enthusiasts will indulge their curiosity about bugs as they explore the world of insects through books, discussion, arts & crafts and other activities, both inside and outside the classroom.

It’s as Easy as π week 7

Children are fascinated by numbers! We will have one week of fun (yes, really!) as we work on furthering problem solving skills, collaboration and team effort while fostering your children’s curiosity about math.
