Summer Camp

Make a splash during summer by attending Manhattan Academy’s Fun in the Sun Summer Camp! Whether you choose to dive into reading, writing, math, art, sports, or adventure, Manhattan Academy will be the place to be!  We plan activities appropriate for each age group, from our infants to our elementary students. Our younger campers will experience on-campus “field trips”, swimming in our pool, water play, our water slide, bounce houses, trips to nearby Polliwog Park and much more. Our older students will use fun topics to sharpen math, writing, reading, and other skills, preparing themselves for success in the fall. They will enjoy swimming in our pool and field trips to many local attractions.

Infants

During summertime, your child’s time at the Manhattan Academy Infant Center will continue to be filled with magical discoveries, developmental achievements, strides in independence and, of course, constant affection!  This exceptional program will provide your children the opportunity to socialize and it will expose them to various cognitive and creative activities to spark their interest. Although all infants have their own individual schedules, each of their days at Manhattan Academy share common features. All of our infants will participate in developmentally appropriate experiences, such as water play, art, music and movement, story time, block play, baby massages, tummy time activities, and much more. Each activity will provide frequent opportunities to promote growth in all areas of development: social, emotional, physical, and cognitive.

Toddlers

We provide a beautiful environment year-round for our toddlers to explore and develop at their individual pace. The toddlers and young preschoolers will continue to work on socialization, toileting, and using the Montessori materials created especially for little hands. These materials help them gain independence, increase hand-eye coordination, and develop a positive self-image.

We plan many exciting adventures for our young students during summertime. We will continue with our Montessori morning lessons, followed by enticing art projects, cooking projects, bubbles, water play, bounce houses and much more! Our young students will also have an opportunity to enjoy their outdoor environment even more during the warm, sunny days of summer!
