The World Around Me
JUNE 24 – AUGUST 23, 2019
ABOUT OUR SUMMER CAMP
The Hudson Country Montessori Summer Day Camp has been offering a fun and safe summer camp for over 23 years. Our unique summer program is developed in an environment geared for learning. It is spirited and skill-oriented but non- competitive and social. Our spacious outdoor and indoor facilities are great for physical, emotional and intellectual growth in a secure loving environment. The quality and success of our summer program is defined by our amazing team of experienced counselors, most of whom are professional educators who work in our school year program. We know our campers enjoy the best that summer has to offer. At Hudson, they learn new skills, explore new adventures and make friends while having fun.
This year we have an exciting summer planned with out theme, The World Around Me. Through our nine-week program, campers will have the opportunity to learn about themselves and the natural world around them while having fun and making new friends.
Come join us for an unforgettable summer.

Bump, crash, thump! Digging deep down in the earth we will uncover rocks, tectonic plates, earthquakes, volcanoes and so much more.
Howl, Roar, Swoosh as we fly into our fourth week at camp on the wind. This week we will discover what makes wind and how we can use it in our daily lives.
Babble, splash, drip! Jump in, the water’s fine! What is water? Campers will explore the different properties of water and work on different bodies of water in our world in a hands-on Montessori setting.
Up, up, and away! We blast off into the week exploring the world beyond! From the planets to the most recent space explorations we will cover the great beyond.
The Whole Natural World
This world was made for you and me. Let’s all work together to make this world a beautiful place to live.
