From STEM to to Musicals: How Will Your Kid Spend Their Summer?
While kids spend their time in the classroom year round, Summer offers a time for a bigger scope of learning. This time of year gives kids a chance to run around and play, and explore broader spheres of learning. Living Montessori Summer Camps are a great way to give your child some structure during the summer and help them cultivate a variety of new skills. From nature hiking to jewelry making to Mandarin and more, consider making the most of your child’s summer with a Living Montessori Summer Camp for 3-10 year olds.

For older students, ages 6-10, our Enrichment Base Camps include a number of field trips.

Our specialty camps delve into a variety of specific topics. From STEM with Legos to Farm Adventures, these camps will give your child a chance to stretch their comfort zone and learn a whole range of new skills. Our Specialty Camps for 3-10 year olds include:
- Dance: Our dance camps explore a number of different dance styles including ballet, jazz and hip hop. These sessions blend self expression with specific movements and simultaneously build coordination and body control.

- Farm Adventures: This program will let your kids explore the process from farm to table. They’ll get their feet wet and their hands dirty learning about cultivating plants, organic gardening, and eating healthy snacks.
- Intro to STEM with Lego: Our STEM classes will help your children understand how Science, Technology, Engineering and Math work together to make our world go round. This course uses concrete objects and ideas (such as Legos) to help children build a sound understanding of these concepts for the rest of their lives.
- Soccer Shots and Advanced Soccer: Our soccer programs for beginning and advanced soccer players explore soccer skills, team building, and have a lot of fun playing the world’s favorite sport. This Summer, our camps will take a look inside the FIFA Confederations Cup, and explore the countries and players who are taking part in it.

Traveling to China will be in your child’s imagination, but the Mandarin language, live shows, and activities will be right here in Bellevue.
