ABOUT OUR SUMMER CAMP
Hudson Country Montessori School has been offering a fun and safe summer camp experience for over 25 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 are 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.
We have an exciting summer planned with our theme, “Animals and Reptiles “. 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.
