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 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.
We have an exciting summer planned with our theme, “Let Biomes be Biomes”. 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.

Our Weekly Themes
Water is the common link among the five biomes and it makes up the largest part of the biosphere. The campers will discover how without water, most life forms would be unable to sustain themselves and the Earth would be a barren, desert-like place.
The desert biome is an ecosystem that forms due to the low level of rainfall it receives each year. Deserts cover about 20% of the Earth. There are four major types of desert in this biome – hot and dry, semiarid, coastal, and cold. Discover why plants and animal life are able to survive there.
Forests occupy approximately one-third of Earth’s land area, account for over two-thirds of the leaf area of land plants. How can we preserve one of earths important biome’s.
Tundra is the coldest of all the biomes. Tundra comes from the Finnish word tunturia, meaning treeless plain. It is noted for its frost-molded landscapes, extremely low temperatures, little precipitation, poor nutrients, and short growing seasons. What can live in this area, and why does it?
Savanna, steppe, prairie, or pampas: They’re all grasslands, the globe’s most agriculturally useful habitats. Let’s discover how important this biome is to the earth.
Baby it’s Cold Outside! The taiga is a forest of the cold, subarctic region. The subarctic is an area of the Northern Hemisphere that lies just south of the Arctic Circle. Why so cold?
The tropical rainforest is a hot, moist biome where it rains all year long. It is known for its dense canopies of vegetation. It is also known for the most amazing, bright and beautiful animals. Let’s find out why they are so colorful!
Bringing The Biomes Home
This world was made for you and me. How do we all work together to make this world a beautiful place to live.
