Summer Camp

Transitional Summer Camp

This camp is for children who will be entering their first year of the RKMS Toddler or Primary program.

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 their Fall 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 play, and Wednesdays are Nature days, with special excursions to explore beautiful Mallinckrodt Park, right next door.
